Hard to believe Derby Season has gone by already! Everything builds up to this grand event every year and the two weeks before Derby are a craze of charity events, balls and parties all about town. And then, in just 2 minutes, it is all over! This was my second time experiencing Derby and Mikes’ first time. Since he is not much of a crowd lover, I went to the Oaks (the race before the final – the more local go and show race at Churchill Downs) with my friend Anna from Southern Sirens. It was so much fun to say the least and I took advantage of this opportunity to take A LOT of pictures! Derby Day itself was spent at our friends house and their Derby Party. It was a great laid back event with delicious food, back porch sunning, good conversation and bourbon! Thanks Deb for hosting it!

So here goes – Derby 2014 viewed through my lens. Enjoy!
