Today over at Kelly's Show us Your Life it's about Hometowns!
My Hometown is Louisville, KY.
Technically I still live here but my address shows a different city! Being 7 miles from the city line I still claim my town to be Louisville because that's where my heart is!
When I was younger I wanted to move as far away as possible from Louisville, KY. Now I can't imagine living anywhere else!
Louisville is nestled on the Ohio River. There is a beautiful water front park where you can go to walk your dog or play frisbee. Our downtown is very clean and has alot of Louisville original restautants and art galleries. I could not mention my hometown without mentioning that we are the home of the Louisville Slugger Bat! I'm sure you've heard of those right? Well if you go on a tour of the factory you get a minature replica at the end of the tour. FYI- you can't take those on the flight back home - pack them in your check in luggage.
Another great and FAMOUS thing about Louisville is the Kentucky Derby! Louisville has a two week festival leading up to the fastest 2 minutes in sports! The festival begins on the river with "Thunder over Louisville" - the largest firework show in America and ends with the race!
And of course I love Louisville because of my favorite college sports team and Undergraduate Alma Mater the University of Louisville. :)
