I love the Kentucky Derby. It's so beautifully perfect. It's not the fast horses or the beautifully manicured lawns. It's certainly not the thrill of betting money, as the thought of losing that money makes a tightwad like me nearly ill. It's not the Mint-Julips either. I'd rather have a glass of iced tea any day, with or without the mint!
I love the Kentucky Derby because it's the one day of the year when it's acceptable and even encouraged to dress with class and style and wear a beautiful hat. Don't tell anyone, but I love those hats and dresses! I watch the news coverage of the day, just to see what the ladies are wearing.
I'll be at home for the Derby, probably trying to catch up on some laundry. I just can't help but think that it would be more fun in a pretty dress and a hat.....
What do you think?
