If you know offline you know that my circle of friends has never met a stranger. Building up women and supporting them in their journey through life is one of my guilty pleasures. Why? Because my mentor did the same for me so I’m paying it forward by sharing glimpses into my friends lives because they’re amazing and everyone should now the amount of good they cultivate in the lovely city of Louisville.
Kicking it off with an ambitious and philanthropic friend named Hannah Cobine. She’s as intelligent as she is beautiful, as you can see and read.

Without further ado …
Friends and foe spanning all sides of the political landscape set aside their differences Monday night, gathering under the Kentucky sky at the steps of the state Capitol to observe an annual holiday tradition – the Governor’s Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony.
After angelic performances by the Frankfort School of Ballet and the Frankfort Christian Academy Middle School choir, words of holiday cheer from Governor Matt Bevin, and the anticipated illumination of one of the grounds’ largest conifers, I stood in line with families from across the Bluegrass state for the opportunity to meet the Governor.
When my chance arrived, I extended my hand in introduction and exchanged brief words about community involvement in Louisville, followed by a photo opp and expressing my gratitude for his time.
The experience reminded me that our elected officials are people too, like us, with thoughts, feelings, and the desire to connect with other humans.
This holiday season, set aside the title, set aside the position, politics, and religious philosophy, let us never forget the humanity of a person – people are people, which serves as my most important takeaway of the night.
