New Home and finding our way into Kentucky Derby Eats //
In my last blog post we announced many exciting moments happening in our lives, the arrival of baby Dielding in October, the grand opening of VADA GALLERY May 14th, and also even more exciting news that Franz and I bought a new home, located in the Historic Licking River District of Covington, Kentucky! We have lived in the downtown Covington area on Covington Avenue for about four years, and we will be moving just a couple streets away from where we are living now. However, I must say that it is completely more than exciting to call a piece of Covington, Kentucky our own, in an exciting but crazy time to buy. It is comforting to know that Covington is a gorgeous historic and beautiful growing community, full of new restaurants, boutiques, books stores, and more popping up! I’m also getting into researching a bit more about Kentucky and with that I absolutely do know that the Kentucky Derby is next weekend and decided to dedicate this post to the new home and appetizers for Derby weekend.

OUR HISTORIC 1800S Covington, Kentucky Home ///
Our Victorian home was built in the late 1800s, and is a brick home, with 14 foot ceilings, and hardwood floors throughout. We will be taking our readers on the journey of remodeling the kitchen and the basement, venturing into some cosmetic adjustments for the baby nursery, ripping out the bathrooms, and adding an outside dining area, garden, and movie viewing area in our little city fenced in backyard.
