It is dizzying trying to decide which demographic is most in need of your donations, services, and heart. It’s human nature to choose something that has directly affected us or someone we know, something that smacks us in the face. “People with disabilities often get overlooked,” says Mitzi Wyrick, attorney at Wyatt Tarrant & Combs, LLP.

An Easier Way to Manage Meds

By Megan Seckman




Monitoring medications for yourself or a loved one can be an enigmatic puzzle. Take the green in the morning before coffee, the big white one with a meal, the two pinks before bed, and the brown ones as needed. It can be exhausting trying to remember the regimen and remains a sensitive beacon of independence. My mother-in-law was sincerely hurt when her son took over dispensing her meds.

What the Coolest Person You’ve Never Met is Reading, Watching and Listening to

By Megan Seckman


Colene Elridge started her own consulting firm to help employees thrive in the workplace. 
Colene Elridge is probably the coolest person you've never met. After our short hour together I left feeling calm, inspired, and reinvigorated. Her contagious smile, overt positivity, and sensible philosophy on life had me wondering where I’d gone wrong — and that was just from an interview over hot tea — no coaching involved.

What We Love About Her {Mom} Style

By Miranda Popp




She delivers the evening news with sophistication and style via the air waves of NBC affiliate, Wave 3. What you don’t see is that this Louisville mom of 8-year-old twin boys, Colt and Cade, and wife of Kendall Cogan, has mastered delivering the perfect look when she’s off the air, as well. A look we’re calling “mom” style. Shannon Cogan says that her kids know she has these two different looks — “TV mom” and “home mom.”

What Could Your Wardrobe Learn from this Trendy Interior Designer?

By Keri Foy



Women whose jobs fall on the creative side tend to let the left brain influence their weekday style. Susan Zehnder, chief development officer at Huber Decor, chooses to display her originality while staying classy.

She doesn’t wear khaki pants or pantyhose. In fact, the office of Huber Decor has a longstanding joke about the dress code — just about anything flies except pantyhose. “I’ve single-handedly done away with the pantyhose industry,” Susan jokes.

An Adventure in Single-Mom Travel

By Megan M. Seckman



Mandy Thompson, 40, captains the ship of her fourth grade classroom with confidence and grace. She can engage the most severe ADHD, assuage the angry with a hypnotic lesson on mindfulness, de-escalate dispute, and help the most withdrawn 9-year-old blossom like a water lily. But when it came to travel after becoming a single mother, she was perplexed. How can a single mom afford to take a vacation?

“A home has to reflect your heart; otherwise you're living in somebody else's house.”

By Keri Foy



Does Home Goods call your name? Do you find yourself lost in the decor aisles at Target? Me, too.

The newness and the prices are so tempting. Plus the styles are on trend for interior design so they’re hard to resist — until you chat with Ania Krejci. Her convictions on interior design made me think twice about how I decorate my home.

Happy Mother’s Day! A Perfect Bucket List for You and Your Kids this Summer

By Jennifer Ward-Pelar 



Something as simple as picking fresh strawberries at Best Berry Farm is worth adding to your bucket list.





My husband was deployed to the Middle East last April, and I headed home to Louisville with my 3-year-old child. We lingered five magical months. South Florida might be paradise for a vacation, but Louisville is a paradise to live. Most everything was free, traffic wasn’t clogged and it wasn’t near as crowded, no matter what event we attended. In Louisville, I felt I spent the summer in paradise, even without a beach.

The Perfect Pitch-In Dish for the Summer

By Paige Rhodes




While we certainly can’t take credit for their invention, deviled eggs are a Southern tradition that go way back in our history. Classic deviled eggs are made with mayonnaise, mustard, a dash of Worcestershire sauce, and a sprinkle of paprika. The recipe below still has a mayonnaise base but with a hint of mustard powder and a bit of Old Bay seasoning to complement the main ingredient — deliciously sweet and salty crab. Lump crabmeat is always best, but a blend would work just fine. (Just promise you won’t go the imitation route for this recipe.) If you have a brunch, BBQ, or church potluck coming up, this seaside twist on deviled eggs will be a huge hit on the buffet table.

When you get married, does your husband's past debt become your debt?

By Joyce Oglesby




Q: “When you get married, does your husband’s past debt become your debt? We’ve been married for three years, and a sizable student loan suddenly appeared. This was something I knew nothing about until now, and he expects me to help pay this down with my savings. We’ve had a great relationship, but this has already brought tension. I don’t want a divorce, but now what?”

It’s Chaotic Before Heather Singleton Goes

By Brittani Dick




Heather Singleton, 36, describes her mornings as “a bit chaotic” with two little ones at home.

“Once I finally coerce the 3-year-old into taking that one last bite, or putting on that one last shoe, we are off to school,” she says. When her 3-year-old and her 9-month-old are hugged, kissed, and dropped off at their respective destinations, Heather heads to one of her favorite stops of the day — Starbucks.

“Doing what I choose doesn’t mean it’s easy…”

By Megan S. Willman



In the fall of 1990, Diana Dinicola came to Louisville’s StageOne Family Theatre for a nine-month internship to complete her theater arts degree from Northwestern University. She didn’t plan to stay in Louisville and certainly never expected that today she would be a partner and business manager at Studio Kremer Architects, Inc., as well as the founding member of Flamenco Louisville. By following these seemingly disparate paths, Diana has found a way to make her dreams a reality.

It's Time for You to Start a Bucket List

Creating and maintaining a bucket list is both a sad and exhilarating endeavor. While it serves as a stark reminder that your time on Earth is limited, it is also a joyful encouragement to make and take opportunities to have fun.

Mint Julep Granita: A Twist on the Traditional

By Paige Rhodes


Everyone expects to see Mint Juleps on your Derby Day spread, but instead of doing the same thing as last year and the year before that, try this twist on the traditional cocktail. Instead of diluting your drink with unnecessary water from the crushed or shaved ice, substitute granita for even more flavor. In this Mint Julep version, you’ll infuse the granita — an Italian semi-frozen dessert made from sugar, water, and various flavorings — with fresh mint and a splash of crème de menthe. Pour over your desired amount of bourbon to finish for an original take on the official cocktail of The Kentucky Derby.
