I’ve always prided myself on consistent Kentucky restaurant reviews, Kentucky pictures of the day, events, news, and all things Kentucky on Genuine Kentucky. The blog means a great deal to us, so we try to travel, dine out, and enjoy all that this beautiful state has to offer. Winter, spring, summer, or fall – we always find (and then celebrate!) the beauty, fun, deliciousness, and
educational adventures Kentucky has to offer.
Sometimes, however, something funny happens… and that something is called life.
One of our beautiful daughters had a very rough patch in her pregnancy a few months back and, as a mother, that’s honestly all that mattered to me. My baby and my first grand baby were were in danger, so my every hour was spent either at their sides in the hospital or somewhere praying.
My blogs, laundry, reviews, and travelling could just wait as far as I was concerned! Thank goodness it wasn’t spring or summer, my flower beds would have taken over the entire county.
Both of our precious fighters came out of the woods and are perfectly healthy, beautiful and downright feisty. If they weren’t, I sure as heck wouldn’t be here typing these words.
I simply wanted to give an explanation for why things have fallen off here on Genuine Kentucky. I realize the Kentucky Events page included Christmas events in January (when I saw that, I literally thought, “Well, at least they weren’t Halloween events..”), I haven’t had a picture of the day in goodness knows how long, and there hasn’t been a new restaurant reviewed in ages. I know there are old restaurant reviews that need to be tweaked and more information added.
There are tons of things to do and I’m excited to get back on track and dive in with the passion I feel for my home state…. and when I’m not holding an 11 pound miracle we formally call Maddox, I will do just that!
We always read words like, “cherish your loved ones” and “family is all that matters” but they’re pretty much just that – WORDS – that is until the day you’re sitting in a hospital, clinic, or bathroom floor (praying) and you realize that family is absolutely everything.
Now… time to get to work!
