The Kentucky country side is the most beautiful land I will ever see. I have driven through almost every state in this country, and I know that there are some amazing views and picturesque landscapes. But the tie that I have because Kentucky is my home will trump all other rolling hills, evergreen forests and rocky shore lines. This weekend I was able to look out at the green Kentucky farmland from the front porch of an old farm house in Cane Valley. Some of my closest friends met me there to spend a weekend together before I leave. My heart had a hard time handling the combination of the joy of such love and beauty and the sadness of our soon separation.
