a local adventure

Have you ever realized that some of the greatest places to explore are right out your backdoor? Yesterday a friend and I ventured about 15 minutes north into Kentucky to visit a few really cute towns. Our first stop was Elkton, Kentucky, population 2,000,  where we discovered a real town square with some cute botiques and cafes. People instantly knew we weren't from around these parts with our Northern accents. We then grabbed a cheese burger at a local burger stand called the Dairy Mart. It was a good old fashioned greasy delicious meal. We both can't wait to bring our husbands there on Bike Night where all the bikers gather for a night of food and festivities. 

Next we ventured into Fairview where we saw the Jefferson Davis Monument. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Jefferson Davis. He was the first and only "President" of the confederate states. Right next to the monument we visited a mennonite greenhouse and produce shop.  There were baskets and baskets of gorgeous flowers spilling over. The produce was fresh and bright and tastes wonderful as well! Here is a pic of the flower basket I purchased. 

I wish I had more photos to show you but I didn't remember my camera! Have a lovely Sunday!


  1. i am so jealous! you know how much i enjoy a southern-themed adventure! reasons why i would have loved this specific trip:
    a.) mennonites pretty much fasicinate me to no end.
    b.) for the uproar a jefferson davis monument would cause with fergy.
    c.) kentucky diners are the ABSOLUTE best. you are right on when you say they recognize a northern accent as soon as you utter a word.
    d.) delicous, extra fresh produce.
