Kentucky has been my home for 13 years, To me, it is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. I know that might seem kind of strange to you considering all of the amazing places to visit on our big blue/green planet. But, Kentucky has so many incredible offerings, I feel like world travelers would be amazed at the wonders our state holds with its borders.

She was excited for me to share all of this with you and I hope to highlight more counties in the future.
