Remember how I said there were some BIG things in the works!? Well… now I get to tell you about the 2nd thing (the 1st thing was about 5280 magazine).
On Friday, I had the privilege of speaking to over 100 Lexmark employees at their headquarters in Lexington, Kentucky. I spoke on the topic of:
Financial Wellness and the Environmental Benefits of Simplifying Through A Year of Living Sustainably.
(A.K.A.: The Little Things Add Up)
Everyone was so welcoming, receptive, warm and friendly. Also, have you ever been to Lexington? I was surprised by how green and lush the city is. Rolling green hills are surrounded by crisp white fences and horses amble about within those lush fields. We also learned about: Hot Browns, Burgoo and Hoppin’ Johnnies. We got to go to the Keeneland Horse Derby (which just so happened to be the last stop before the Kentucky Derby), we saw The McConnell Springs and we even went to a Shaker Village (like the Quakers but different), a billy goat ate part of my shirt, and we shared a piece of 4 layer orange cake with orange buttercream frosting.
The whole city was really SO pretty and the whole experience was great!
Below are some images from the hour long talk at Lexmark and some photographs from the Q&A session that followed.
