Huffington Post "Love Letter to Lexington"

A couple of weeks ago, I was emailed with a request...a request to write. Of course, as a writer and editor, its not unusual to receive such emails. But this email caught my eye on that first pop-up in the inbox. It was an email from a pretty snazzy marketing company here in Lexington looking to connect a local writer with a travel editor at a pretty snazzy NYC online publication for a "Love Letter to Lexington."
Truth be told, I have zero time to write much of anything beyond the land of CAKE&WHISKEY anymore. But, there was something about this project that was calling my name.
Donning the editor hat a few months ago certainly pulled me away from creative wheels that can only be put in motion with a blank document and the crazy mish-mash of thoughts waiting to be pulled, how I have missed that.
The piece was sent off last week and immediately my editor hat was picked up off the floor (where Jameson the bunny was nibbling on the brim) and it has been a mad dash to the finish line of a gorgeous fall issue to be released in October.
This morning The Huffington Post ran the "Love Letter to Lexington" and a big smile came across my face. I loved writing it because I truly love this city. And I something in me needed to set aside all else for just a few hours to reflect on why.
