...where we are from...

Throughout our lives, Ben and I have been "at home" in many places.  Currently, we live in Lexington, Kentucky. As you can see by this sign, we are not the only ones who think it is a great place to live!

For a quick overview of our city:

And, of course, Lexington is the home of the University of Kentucky Wildcats! We are not huge sports fans, but it is hard to not get a little excited about UK's basketball team.  Ben has also worked in the CATS tutoring center and has been very impressed with the commitment UK makes to support the academic success of its dedicated, hardworking athletes.

For a breath of fresh air, we enjoy hiking at nearby Raven Run Nature Santuary,, which has trails leading to an overlook of the Kentucky River.

Another one of our favorite outdoor spots is the Arboretum, State Botanical Gardens which is right across the street from UK's Stadium.  Native plants are displayed in a way that is impossible to describe in words or even photos--you need to go there yourself!

The Kentucky Horse Park is one of the most well known attractions in Lexington and we especially like the Arabian display.
