This weekend I was fortunate enough to attend The Kentucky Derby. A Bucket List event of a lifetime and the experience was everything I had hoped it would be and more.
On Friday we toured the Buffalo Trace Distillery a National Historic Landmark that remains is fully functional today. We had an amazing tour guide Freddie Johnson who’s heartfelt stories of his grandfather and father, who both worked at the distillery, made the tour so personal. Then we toured Winstar Farms where we saw Pioneer of the Nile the sire to American Pharaoh. Isn’t he handsome?
That evening we attended a beautiful pre-derby party. Believe it or not five days earlier this was a fully functional barn! It was an incredible evening with a band from Atlanta that was out of this world. We never stopped dancing once they started playing.
And then the derby…
So my card today is a Congratulations card to the Derby winner Always Dreaming . Ironically one of the owners of Always Dreaming was on my airport shuttle when I arrived back to Naples this morning. It was crazy and so exciting to talk to them about the next race in their pursuit of the triple crown.
My card today was created using splotches from Stampin’ Up’s Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set (retiring on May 31st) and Simon Say Stamps Painted Congrats Framelit. What looks like grey splotches are really three sequins from Pretty Posh.
Congrats to #AlwaysDreaming the 2017 Kentucky Derby Winner.
Thanks for stopping by.
