It's almost that time, Y'all! Like many of you, I am DANG PROUD to be a Kentuckian. One of my favorite things in the whole world is the Kentucky State Fair celebrating all things agriculture, art, innovation, and just some good ole fun! Where else can you pet some goats, ride fun rides, marvel at the biggest watermelon of the year, and shove delicious food in your face all in one place?
