Isn't Kentucky beautiful in the fall? Yesterday I received an invitation to the Kentucky Book Fair November 7, so I'm on my way! This event promotes literacy and supports local libraries and schools which makes me very happy. Every book signed and sold goes for just that. I'm thrilled to be a part of what the invitation calls, "the state's premiere literary event." I get to stay at my favorite 18th-century inn while there. Can't wait!
Here are some Kentucky Derby cupcakes. Edible, all of it! I haven't been to the derby in May for many years. I love horses but haven't ridden since I was 12 years old and got bucked off one. Haven't been back on since:) I'd love to take lessons and have a jockey friend here who might help with that. Anyone remember what Lael's first horse was called? Or what color? Hmmm...anyone but the author remember those type details?
This old postcard makes me chuckle. I heard from a reader in Paducah just this week and thought of her when I saw this, thus the pic. This next trip I'll be hanging out in the Berea area where my parents live and then going to Frankfort for the book event.
Would love to see you there!
