Cooking Up the Perfect Date Night

By Paige Rhodes

Delight your man with a delicious steak dinner that is easy to make.

These recipes mixed with your hard work are sure to impress your love.

Her Turning Point: A Simple Decision Can Change Your Life

By Lucy M. Pritchett

When someone tells you her turning point came during a car ride, you might jump to the conclusion that there had been some sort of tragic accident that caused a chain reaction of events. But I was happy to learn that Shanna Ward’s turning point had no such story behind it.

Instead, the story goes that as a senior at the University of Louisville majoring in political science, Shanna ended up sharing a ride to Frankfort on her first day there as a legislative intern. The driver was Carol Butler, who then served as director of special events and projects at the university. The upshot of their conversation during that car ride to the Capitol was that Shanna accepted an intern job in Carol’s department.

Goodbye to a life in politics; hello to the world of event planning.

Wendy Saladino, professional interior designer at Tassels, is a self-proclaimed Southern girl. When I met her for coffee, she was clad in a periwinkle Kate Spade dress that was covered in a black cat pattern. With her giant pink (like Legally Blonde pink) diamond earrings and a black bow tied around her neck, she was a statement piece herself — nothing like the gray sweaters that surrounded us on that very gray morning.
