“I’m driving to Kentucky” said my grandfather, who lived in Tennessee. “Meeting my friend for some pie.”
My grandfather used to meet his friend monthly just over the state line. Their meet up would consist of a lot of coffee and a meal at a restaurant that was well off the beaten path. I wish I could remember the name of that place. I would drive there right now just to experience the smells and sights that he did when he met his friend for a piece of their homemade pie. Two old friends bonding over a piece of pie made in the hills of Kentucky. There ain’t no better story than that.
My grandfather and my love for Kentucky and its history has inspired my friend and I to experience and write about all that Kentucky has to offer on a local level. And that is quite a bit. Two chicks bonding over chai tea and our stories of growing up just down the road from each other in Lexington and the different ways we remember it. Now, we bond over chai tea while choosing where to visit next!

“We are disasters!” said Stacey Bosley, as we sat on the floor of the soon-to-be “Magpie in the Georgetown Makery” in Georgetown, Ky., on Saturday afternoon with her and best friend, Amanda Hervey. “We want you to know we are disasters,” she said.
“What a relief,” thought both of us...Read More »
It had been a while since I had been at a football game. Credentialed, at least. It was a thrill. It was our first actual event as official Georgetown bloggers and Chicks with Chai had “all access” passes to anywhere we wanted to go at the Georgetown College football game....Read More »
