This past Saturday was spent with my best friend, Jamie. Every outing with her is an adventurous one. We tend to throw caution to the wind, and somehow we always follow wherever the road takes us. We decided to drive downtown to walk across the Big Four Bridge. The bridge, which is one mile in length, spans across the Ohio River and ends in downtown Jeffersonville, Indiana. You can find bike riders, dog walkers, and romantic couples promenading across it. Jamie and I embraced the sunshine and the sweltering heat, and took part in the trek to Indiana. We made our way over to Spring Street after we crossed the bridge. We found a quirky garden with interesting planters and sculptures. It was tucked off of Spring Street like a secret garden. Of course, it was open to the public and it had a walkway through the middle of it.
We continued exploring, and we stopped in at a few places to cool down from the heat. Jamie suggested Match Cigar Bar first. We relaxed in the lounge, a cozy spot with l…

Family outings are far and few between at my house, but the summertime usually calls for a lot of trips to get frozen yogurt. My mom loves the cheesecake pieces, my sister adds tons of fruit, my brother gets more sprinkles than frozen yogurt, and I usually get a divider so I can try more than one flavor.

The event included a cocktail hour with an open bar and hors d'oeuvres, a silent auction, a musical revue hosted by Tom Dunbar that included Louisville theater groups, such as CenterStage at the Jewish Comm…

Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey

I went with my family to see the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus show back in May. This was meant to be an experience for the entire family, but I think my brother enjoyed it the most. I mean, we all had so much fun, but my brother was overly enthusiastic about everything. Oh, who am I kidding... The whole family was excited. My brother was looking forward to the elephants the most, but there were a few other things that caught his attention.
We made our way to our seats, and we noticed that guests were being escorted down to the arena floor. You could talk with the clowns, try on costumes, learn acrobatic skills, juggle, watch animals do tricks, and grab a clown nose. My sister stayed in her seat because she's terrified of clowns, but we all grabbed our clown noses and headed on down. We were greeted by DJ, the friendliest clown I have ever known. He instantly bonded with my brother, and they just had to take a picture together. He called DJ his buddy throughout t…
