“He's the sweetest monster we've ever seen.”
The first time we found Titan when he ran away, that's what the women who'd caught him running down the street and leashed him up said. The year-old Great Pyrenees/German Shepherd mix, littermate to our own dog, had jumped his owner's fence and we'd gone in search of him.
Nearly a year later he was out again, and this time his owner was done. “Whoever finds him can keep him,” said their Facebook post late this spring. We only knew Titan from a few ...
In the way you find something you like and then keep seeing it, black walls were suddenly everywhere I looked — even my favorite local coffee shop. With a total kitchen remodel underway last ...
Welcome to 2019 where even our dogs can have dinner delivered. And we're not talking a bag of kibble in the mail. Nope, Truffle and our Great Pyrenees mix Cassius ar...
Fixing up your home can get to become a way of life. There's always another project just waiting for your magic touch. But for those of us with a fixer-upper habit, there's a peril lurking on the other side of all those re-dos – it's the dreaded Over Improved house.
You know the one.
Stop saying "smooth," to start.
It’s funny how most of us know we can’t be our own physician or attorney after watching a few YouTube videos, but ask us if we can run our own renovation and an awful lot of us think we can handle it just fine. Who needs a contractor when you can find your own sub-
Locals may debate whether this river city is the South or the Midwest, but everyone can agree that Louisville, Kentucky, is an exciting place to be.
Crowds pack the 'Ville for the Kentucky Derby the first weekend in May, but bourbon-fueled delights await year-round.
Pick a place that's right for you, and it can be the difference in just a fun summer getaway — and a really memorable trip.
Sometimes food is about artisan ingredients, beautiful plating, and a chef's brilliance; sometimes food is about soul-soothing nourishment. That's not to say it can't be both, but the latter is one of the reasons I fell in love with an unlikely Midwestern city. In fact, I fell so hard I bought a big, old house that had plenty of soul, but needed a lot of TLC.
The first glimmer of the idea that became EDWINS came with Brandon Chrostowski's arrest. He was 18 years old, just a kid in Detroit, charged with fleeing when they couldn't get him on a drug dealing charge. The judge offered him a second chance–but only if he got a job.
Motown, the Motor City, the D. With its history and culture and great new places to hang, this happening hot spot can’t have just one name.
We learn to dress ourselves around, what, kindergarten? It's not hard. You put garments on the parts that you don't want to get cold and that's it. Back then we didn't give much thought to how we looked in our clothes — or maybe it's that we didn't give much thought to what other people thought.
Hotels are fond of plastering "dog friendly" on everything, luring pet families with promises of treats and dog bowls and beds to pamper their pooches.
I'm sure they think it makes them look good, but maybe what they're not considering is the frustration it generates when d...
Once while renovating a big, old house in Detroit, I subsisted on pizza, Pringles, peanut butter and jelly, and M&Ms. (And bourbon.) My body did not thank me. Which is why, looking ahead to my next project—a kitchen refresh in my new place in Louisville, Kentucky—I turned to Jess Dang, a professional Bay Area meal planner who recently completed a major kitchen reno herself, for tips on not only surviving, but thriving.
Before the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and Urban Bourbon Trail, before mixology and mint juleps, before the rise and fall and rise again of bourbon, there were pioneers growing corn.
