Off to the races with @rd1spirits! I recently moved to Lexington, Kentucky and it has been a year full of natural beauty, Southern hospitality, and whiskey. I know, life is hard. And this last week, Kentucky added a cherry on top of it's awesomeness... the horse races! I attended the @keeneland Spring Meet in my gorgeous city a few days ago and it was fabulous. Big hats, stunning horse specimens, and whiskey at every turn. Lucky for me, I happened to have a bourbon bottle from the city's first federally registered distillery, @rd1spirits. So what better way than to celebrate the races with a dram of Manchester Reserve. With distinct notes of smoked oak and a brown sugar finish, it's pretty ideal to sip on while watching your horse cross the finish line. And how gorgeous is this silver barrel tumbler from @lexingtonsilver?! Cheers to you friends and make sure to shout out your predictions for this year's Spring Meet winners... no seriously, I need help placing my bets! #rd1 #lexington #springmeet #keeneland #keenelandspringmeet #whiskey #lexingtonky #lexingtonkyphotographer #horseracing

AD: Springtime Picnic in the Woods with @homeruninn ! Did you know that you can cook frozen pizza over the grill? Yup, it’s one of those magical things in life, like sleeping on newly washed sheets and the smell of fresh-made bread. So, if you haven’t experienced a fire-grilled frozen pizza, then I highly recommend you grab a Home Run Inn pizza, pack up a portable grill, fill the car with loved ones, and go set up a picnic in the woods. Throw that frozen pizza over the fire for 16-20 minutes and you not only have a deliciously smokey slice to munch on, you have just made an amazing memory.

#ad Simple Kitchen Upgrade with @moeninc . One super easy (and affordable) way to customize your home is by upgrading the kitchen faucet. So today, I’ve teamed up with Moen to show you just how much of an impact this simple fix can make. The kitchen is the heart of every home. I just moved to a lovely estate in the Kentucky countryside and I seriously have been giggling nonstop like a little girl about to take her first pony ride. It’s my dream home! Forested backyard, deer roaming in the garden, and a kitchen sink with a view of it all. So to put my own personal stamp on my little corner of heaven, I wanted a grand statement piece to match the grandeur of the scene. In walks the Weymouth kitchen faucet in brushed gold like a tall, golden drink of water. It ties in the colors of my new countertop and backsplash beautifully to highlight the gold tones throughout the whole kitchen. The faucet has a plethora of tech features built in. The Duralock™ quick connect system made for the easiest installation. Seriously, my husband and I did this all ourselves. The Power Boost™ technology provides boosted water with the push of a button. I’m in love. So who is up for tackling this (pretty easy) kitchen upgrade? Make sure to check out the link in bio and feel free to DM me if you have any questions about the installation process. Cheers!
