Even though I was born and raised out west, I did live in the south for a few years when I pursued a country music career and attended college at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. And let me just say, my years in the Music City were some of the best of my life. There is just something about the South that is so near and dear to me. What can I say? I’m a country girl at heart. And because I especially love all of the incredible traditions that come from the South, J and I decided to throw a Derby party this year. I have always wanted to host one, but haven’t had the chance since I moved to Utah. But this year, it was the perfect excuse to get extra dressed up, enjoy the gorgeous weather, drink cocktails in the afternoon, and celebrate my birthday (a few days early) with all of our favorite people! It was a great time had by all, and served as the perfect reminder to wear big, floppy hats more often!
