Louisville is quite a pretty city. Loved the architecture and that fact that instead of tearing down the old they took the time to restore such a historical city. We played tourist and went to the Louisville Slugger Museum. My sister is a baseball fan so I went along with it, but in the end found the whole thing quite intriguing. We explored a few shops and toured many historical spots. The Cave Hill Cemetery was actually quite beautiful and is the only place where both the North and South were buried during the Civil War. The story of Sister Emily Cooper brought me to tears. Now that is living a dedicated life full of meaning. Talk about an odd place to be challenged to be a better person. Ha. Oh, and isn't my Mama pretty? She despises to have her picture taking. Happy she is not a blog reader!
Here is a little snippet of a home I have been helping with. It is the only room I would say is complete. I will share better photos when the house is finished of course. The home owner found the pears at Tracery. Must say I adore them and now what them for myself. Ha.
It took me some time to gather my Louisville trip together and while getting ready to blog I quickly realized I had WAY too many pictures to share so I am splitting it in two. This post is dedicated to the good eats of Louisville. Granted I could not eat the majority of things I really wanted to since I am gluten free, but the sister did assure me that they were quite delicious. Blue Dog Cafe made their eggs with sea salt. Not sure why I never thought of doing this myself, because it sure did take an average egg up to a whole new level of goodness. The sixth image down is a Hot Brown. It is award winning and a tradition done in Louisville so happy my sister was willing to try it so I could get a photo of it. Ha. The Pie Kitchen had some amazing looking pies, but more importantly had the most amazing homemade ice cream I have ever tasted. We went twice so I could simply indulge. They even had a list for gluten free people. Can't wait to go eat more!
