off to the races

I'm not going to the Kentucky Derby, or even to a derby party (although I would love an excuse to buy and wear a giant fancy hat) but I think I'll have a mint julep this weekend to toast the ponies. 
(After all the tragedies with horse races lately, I just hope all the horses and jockeys finish safely.)

I know-- I love horse racing, but there have been so many problems the last few years. Really, last year's Derby absolutely broke my heart. And yay for mint juleps- so yummy.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed until the race is over! but mint juleps will help me be less nervous.
