Today’s post is simply to say Happy First Anniversary to Lexington, KY!

It was one year ago (1/5/2012), that we took the plunge and moved south.  The past 12 months have flown by, but in that time we’ve accomplished quite a bit to be proud of…

Rydan began Taekwondo and has successfully passed five belt tests.  In just a few weeks he’ll test for his purple belt.


I had the privilege of playing horse polo.


We made two visits to Rupp Arena, one for Rydan to see WWE, and another for Lily to see Sesame Street Live.

downloadRydan played baseball with the Eastern Little League Pirates, where he received the game ball after playing so well during one particular game.


We got up close and personal with some champion horses, not to mention we’ve probably seen more horses in the past year than I have in my entire lifetime.

We experienced Kentucky Derby Day at the renowned Keeneland Race Course.


I completed my first 5K, followed by my second and third 5K, and then my first 10K, and I’m currently training for my first half marathon.


We made two trips to Cincinnati; the first to attend LegoFest, and the second, which included a visit to the Newport Aquarium and Great American Ballpark, our new home to watch the Phillies, and also where Lily got up close and personal with Kyle Kendrick.



Rydan and Lily each rode a horse for the first time.

All in all… not too shabby of a year!  I think it’s safe to say that had we still been living in Pennsylvania, we never would have experienced most of the above.  Thank you, Lexington, KY for being so good to us.  We are looking forward to seeing what 2013 has in store.

Our new framed reminder of when it all began.
