After living in Chicago, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Colorado, my husband and I made our (hopefully? probably?) final move back to Louisville, where I was born and raised. Ahhh...it's nice to be home. Now I'm busy making sure my three little ones learn to love the quirks and traditions of their new hometown: Kentucky Derby Festival, no school on Oaks Day, grits and hot browns (not necessarily together), monograms, parks, festivals, and even our seasonal allergies.
It's a tie between the Olmsted-designed park system and the neighborhoods. The trees, the architecture, and the thoughtful public spaces are so unique and important. They are what make you miss Louisville when you're gone, and what you take for granted when you're here.
