Lexington through Chicago eyes.


It's hard to capture an ENTIRE city through a handful of photos but I did my best.

Here are some of the pictures I took last week during my trip back to Kentucky.

I wanted to show what looked like "Lexington" to me, or rather, what caught my eye about the city.

Here. We. Go!

Hot Brown, anyone?

It's always nice to start things off with a good meal.


Random street art! Look at all those colors!

Quaint shops just about everywhere.

Glass bottles hanging from a tree on a sleepy Sunday morning.

Horse statues.....

.....and decorated horse sculptures!

Manhole covers are painted in bright patterns here! Love it!

And last but not least, here are my babies:

Edith Ann

Sami

And Harry (he's always getting into trouble!)

Ah, how I miss all of it.

I've only been there twice now--a total of ten days--but it already feels like home.

One day I hope it will be.....

Make it happen Dean. You can do it!

I loved the tour of Lexington! The bottle tree inspires me to do something like that in my backyard. And, oh those kitties! LOVE

Your picture fill me with fond memories. I remember when DeSha's had it's grand opening, happy to see it's still there, and I completely forgot about the Black Swan~ That neighborhood used to have my favorite cafe in the whole world in it, but like so many things, it went out of business years ago now... I am SO happy that you are so happy! Cheers.

Randy, I'm curious how much has changed since you last lived there. Or rather, if you'd think the changes are good or bad.
