This week’s Open Book Blog Hop discussion is “What’s the one thing you look forward to on Easter?”
My answer is divinely simple – family. Our kids and grandkids come over, we eat, drink and visit. It’s the best feeling in the world.
Of course we go to church first, give thanks and praise the Lord before all of the festivities.
This year, things will be different, as Gene and I will be traveling. We’re heading to Kentucky for a research/visit trip for the weekend and it will be jam packed. Keeneland Thoroughbred & Racing on Friday and Wilderness Trail Distillery on Saturday. You see this is all for my Chandler County Multi-Author Branded series and my series of books within Chandler County, the Bluegrass Security Series.
I’ll be taking a ton of pictures on this trip and Gene and my cousin, Sonya will be along for the adventure. But, on Sunday, we’ll be coming home and Easter will be spent on the highway with other weary travelers.
What are you doing for Easter? What do you look forward to the most? I’d love to know.
Join me in seeing what my fellow blog hoppers look forward to on Easter.

Yes, family. I’m of the same opinion Patti.
Love research travel! And, family get-togethers.
Best of both worlds.
Family and friends are the most important things for me at Easter or anytime.
Absolutely. Have a great Easter weekend Kathleen.
Happy Easter to you and your family..
I hope you enjoy your stay in Kentucky. I’m from Richmond and my husband is from Lebanon, both very near Danville. Danville is a beautiful, quaint small town. I’ve not been to the Wilderness Trail distillery, but have been to Buffalo Trace, close to where we live here in Louisville and of course to Maker’s Mark Distillery in Loretto, KY, just outside of Lebanon. Maker’s Mark has an extraordinary tour and you might even get to dip your own bottle in the red wax seal, if you stop there during your visit. There are also some beautiful horse farms in Lexington, not just those over by Keeneland off of Versailles Road, but off of Iron Works Road (Exit 15 off I-75).
We are having beautiful weather, though Easter Sunday afternoon rain is expected. Safe travels.
Thanks Tammy. Wilderness Trails was fabulous and, you’re so right, Danville is awesome. One of these days we’ll make it down to the other distilleries. This one was special because my cousin, Sonya, is personal friends with one of the owners, Patrick. He gave us a fabulous tour and Gene and I are lifelong customers of Wilderness Trail.
