Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for. CROSS COUNTRY DAY! Today is of my favorite days of the year. While it isn’t as grand as actually being at the Kentucky Horse Park to witness it live and hang out at the EN Tailgate Party, snuggling up in a blanket with some hot cocoa and a cat is a great way to spend a Saturday morning. I’ve already hooked my MacBook to my flat screen TV in anticipation of the morning’s activities.
