I am partnering with Dean’s Dairy during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to share their goal of generating resources for the fight against breast cancer here in Kentucky and Indiana.

Bubbles asked me the other day why she was seeing so much more pink around town.  Pink is one of her two favorite colors, so she definitely noticed the uptick in it’s usage.

Riding the carousel horses at the Louisville Zoo

Beauty & the Beast is one of my all-time favorite Disney movies.  I actually did my high school French class project on it, translating the song “Tale as Old as Time” into French.  I still can’t hear the song without “belle et la bête” running through my head.

Whip up a batch of The Grey Stuff Brownie Bites to celebrate the release of Beauty & the Beast 25th Anniversary Edition

The live action version of Beauty & the Beast will be in theaters soon, and I can’t wait.  But classics will always have a special place in my heart so I’m very happy that the 25th Anniversary Edition of Beauty & the Beast is available on Blu-ray/DVD/Digital combo pack today! Continue reading »
