Blume Floral Studio

Blume Floral Studio

Blume Floral Studio, located in the MainStrasse Village in Covington  is the most unique flower shop I have ever had the chance to visit.  You will not find run of the mill carnation bouquets at Blume.  Every arrangement is created carefully with an eye for beauty and originality. Blume Floral Studio I have been trolling...
Bircus Brewing Company

Bircus Brewing Company

Bircus Brewing Company is part circus and part brewery and it is quickly becoming the neighborhood bar where everyone knows your name.  At least that is how I felt when we hung out there.  You can walk into this brewery and not know anyone in the joint and by the time you leave you will...

Dinner at Lisse in Covington

If you want to have a top notch steak dinner then you really should treat yourself to dinner at the Dutch inspired restaurant Lisse in Covington.   I would venture to say that the steak at Lisse was one of the best I have had, and all the other foods we tasted were amazing as well,...
The Hannaford in Covington

The Hannaford in Covington

The bar and restaurant scene in Covington has really been booming these past few years.  The Hannaford at Pike and Madison is one of the more recent newcomers to Covington.  They opened in 2016 in the old Mutual building in Covington after it was empty for so many years.  The Hannaford is in a great...
Apocalypse Brew Works in Louisville

Apocalypse Brew Works in Louisville

During a recent trip to Louisville we were looking for a brewery to stop by for a quick brew before meeting up with friends and we ended up at Apocalypse Brew Works.  Louisville is booming with craft breweries much like our own hometown, which makes it fun to try to find new places to try new...
The Jailer's Inn Bed & Breakfast in Bardstown KY

The Jailer’s Inn Bed & Breakfast in Bardstown KY

We have stayed in the Jailer’s Inn Bed & Breakfast twice now and each experience was full of memory making fun (and maybe a little haunting).  This old timey jail turned bed and breakfast is in the heart of Bourbon country in the quaint town of Bardstown. The accommodations are unique and well cared for,...
Moonrise Doughnuts

Moonrise Doughnuts

If you love doughnuts then you need to find your way to Moonrise Doughnuts some evening soon!  Way back in the day there was a doughnut shop in Latonia where you could go late at night and get fresh doughnuts hot out of the fryer.  Moonrise Doughnuts is bringing back the nostalgia of eating fresh...
Burgers and Crafts at the Holiday Inn in Covington

Burgers and Crafts at the Holiday Inn in Covington

You must know by now that I like to find all the great burgers around town.  A while back we discovered Burgers and Crafts in Covington, located inside the Holiday Inn.  When they opened their doors earlier this year the internet was all abuzz about the delicious burgers offered up at Burgers and Crafts.  We...
Stingray Hideaway at the Newport Aquarium

Stingray Hideaway at the Newport Aquarium

Stingray Hideaway at the Newport Aquarium is now one of my favorite things about this aquarium!  It is such a cool space to hang out with stingrays!  You can stand over the pool and pet the sting rays, or go under the pool through a tunnel and up through a tube to watch the stingrays...
Wooden Cask Brewing Company

Wooden Cask Brewing Company

We have found another fantastic brewery to love, the Wooden Cask Brewing Company on York Street in Newport.  Northern Kentucky is starting to catch up with Cincinnati in terms of craft beer and local breweries.  Just a year ago our options were limited on the south side of the Ohio River.  Now more craft breweries...
The Wrigley Taproom & Eatery in Corbin, KY

The Wrigley Taproom & Eatery in Corbin, KY

When we travel I love to find locally owned restaurants to visit for meals.  Recently we happened upon The Wrigley Taproom in Corbin, Kentucky on our way to Pine Mountain State Park.  This restaurant was fantastic!  They offer an ever changing menu full of items that are made with locally sourced ingredients.  Their beer menu...
A Weekend Away at Pine Mountain State Park

A Weekend Away at Pine Mountain State Park

A little while back Michael and I took leave of our children for a weekend.   We left the kids with the grandparents, loaded up the van and headed to the Pine Mountain State Park in Eastern Kentucky.  We were so far east in the state that we actually visited three different states during the...
