November 7, 2019

fall leaves flatlay

I’ve been MIA for the past month from my blog. However, I always still try to post on instagram almost daily! In early October, my husband and I took a last minute trip to Washington DC to watch the Dodgers play the Nationals in the NLDS. Now that baseball season has officially been over for a week, I’ve been getting back into the groove of things. I have quite a bit of content planned, including local spotlights on some businesses, as well as holiday content!

As always here is a list of some things going on in Lexington, Kentucky. It isn’t an extensive list, but just something to give y’all some ideas!
