Yesterday we flew to Louisville, KY to spend the long weekend with Joe’s family. I always love visiting this city, there is so much to see and do—from craft distilleries to incredible farm to table restaurants, it’s a place full of great culture and experiences. But mostly, I just love relaxing, catching up with family and of course stuffing my face with with food straight from the grill. What are your plans for 4th of July weekend?
