Sorry for the lack of posts lately–it’s been a crazy busy week. And even though the Kentucky Derby was five days ago, I wanted to share some of the photos I took with my iPhone of that long, rainy, but always amazing day.
(BTW, Orb was the winner, and I bet on him–yay! I ended up leaving Churchill Downs earning money after betting, instead of losing it all like I normally do!)

Just some of the cameras used on the starting gate for the Derby. We have one there.
Chad Harmon, one of our magazine’s photographers. He was keeping the camera dry in the rain (I joke and say no one taught him not to play in plastic bags).
Through these gates will pass a champion. (The starting gate)
I rocked the green “Gumby suit” with my navy blue polka dot wellies for my Derby attire.
