Happy birthday to us.

Today is our first birthday here at LEXtoday — and we’ll cry if we want to — as we reflect on our favorite stories from the last 365 days + give you a personal invitation to our happy hour birthday event.

After all, we’ve come a long way since our first newsletter.

City Editor Aaron’s favorite stories:

  • Rocky the Dog | This story came to me from reader Jessica K. Rocky the Dog is a pet rock + neighborhood art piece that puts a smile on the face of all who cross his path.
  • Will Harbut and Man O’ War | History pieces are some of my favorite to write. Researching and writing about these local legends was an honor and a pleasure.
  • Leestown Coffee House | Lexington loves to support local. That’s just a fact. The owners of this coffee shop to a leap of faith to open their business, knowing that Lexington would show up to support them.

City Editor Molly’s favorite stories:

  • Be the Broker | I love dreaming up businesses in the available buildings around town — it was fun to learn that y’all do the same thing.
  • The Sorella Sisters | I really have loved all of the Q&As I’ve done, but getting a peek into the creative minds of Alma + Selma was just as sweet as their delicious gelato.
  • Hank the Horse | I spotted Hank at Joseph-Beth Bookseller’s once and of course, had to learn more. Like Lexington, his story + Tammi Jo Regan’s mission are so heart-warming and beautiful.
