My Louisville Loves

I originally started this blog when I was living abroad in Barcelona. I had some serious homesickness for our fair city, in that I couldn't stop thinking about all of the wonderful treasures we have right at our fingertips. So, here is my attempt at covering all that I love in Louisville.

I have been to all of these places at one time or another, and they will always be a part of my heart. When I think of Louisville, these sights, smells, tastes, feelings, and sounds are what that come to mind.

I have listed specialty food stores, restaurants, sights & entertainment, and shopping. I haven't listed places I dislike or haven't visited, so here is a good outline of the city, especially if you are new in town or visiting. If there is a place you would like to know more about, please don't hesitate to comment or write me an email!!!

The linked pages will take you to posts with my thoughts about each place--you can call them "reviews" if you want, but I'm really just going to tell you my experience. I don't put ratings on anything because everything is subjective. If you are a regular reader, you will probably get a good sense of what I like, and I think I have good taste--but it might not be yours, so have a try and let me know what you think as well.

This is a giant work in progress and an ever-evolving page, so check back frequently.
