Walt + Disney

Hi friends – I’m back! Last week I was in Walt Disney World with some friends and family. I hadn’t been since 2009 and had forgotten how purely and utterly amazing yet exhausting it is. We had an unbelievable amount of fun, and we also averaged around 20,000 steps per day. I can’t complain though[…]

El Dorado Casitas Royale

It’s cold and rainy here in Maryland today, so I’m reminiscing about our trip to Mexico earlier this month. As with any trip, I can’t believe it’s come and gone already. Since my husband is a travel agent (as well as a photographer), we have been pretty spoiled with our recent vacations! We stayed in[…]

Old Friends Farm

On the Thursday before the Breeder’s Cup, we took a tour of Old Friends Farm, which is located in Georgetown, Kentucky. Of course, I was there to see my main man, Silver Charm, but I was also looking forward to meeting all of the retirees. “Old Friends provides a dignified retirement to Thoroughbreds whose racing[…]

Salamander Resort & Spa

I’m a little behind with this post – sorry! So back to our Middleburg day trip a few weeks ago… James and I capped off our wonderful, very horsey day together with dinner at the Salamander Resort & Spa. Salamander can be found one side street off of the main road that runs through Middleburg,[…]

Churchill Downs and The Julep Cup

We flew into Louisville last Wednesday and arrived around ten in the morning. After we piled into the rental car, (it was a squeeze with the four of us and our luggage!), we found a small Mexican restaurant (Me Gusta) for lunch. It was excellent! The four of us (me, James, my sister, Kim, and[…]

The Town of Middleburg

Middleburg is adorable and perfect for those lovers of all things equestrian, especially foxhunting. I had never been to Middleburg, but after reading Vicky Moon’s The Middleburg Mystique, I knew a visit was in order. James and I arrived around 10:30 on Saturday morning and went straight to the National Sporting Museum and Library. I[…]

Belmont Park

After reading Ruffian: Burning from the Start and Ruffian: A Racetrack Romance, I wanted to visit her grave at Belmont Park in New York. I had never been to Belmont before, but since James and I were in Manhattan last week, we decided to swing by the track on our way to the Hamptons. Prior[…]

Breeder’s Cup Bound

I’m so excited – we are going to Breeder’s Cup this year! Since the race will be hosted at Keeneland, and I love any excuse to journey to Lexington, my husband and I, along with my sister, brother-in-law, and friends Zach and Susan, planned a trip. We were really nervous that we wouldn’t get tickets[…]
