Celebrate Mom This Weekend in Central Kentucky!
The beginning of May is full of holidays! This past Saturday, we had the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby as well as Star Wars Day (May The Fourth Be with You). Then Cinco de Mayo was on Sunday. Coming up this Sunday, May 12th, we’ll celebrate the leading lady in our lives: our Moms. Now we know that our Moms should be celebrated throughout the year, but make sure her day is EXTRA special with these fun ideas!
