I love your blog. I have not enjoyed reading any blog as much as yours. I was very touched by the photos last month of NOLA and anything that you mention about the French Quarter. I was a disaster inspector after Katrina. My only experience there was sad to say after the disaster. My husband and I worked 6 months after the storm. My heart still hurts from all the
pain and loss of so many lives, homes and everyday living. I had so many experiences there, good and sad.
It was an surreal experience to be in the ninth ward, alone, looking for an address to verify a home was there and once occupied. It was so quiet you could hear a pin drop...sad not even a bird to be heard. No people...no cats...no dogs.
In Metarie I met many people with sad, painful stories...they needed someone to hear and know what they felt. They especially needed empathy, a hug, a kind word of encouragement.
We actually lived on Daphine Street in the French Quarter for 3 of the months we were there. I wish I would have taken the time to visit historical buildings and get a better feel for the happier days there. The people who came back to the French Quarter in the beginning were so positive and so happy to pick up there lives and go forward...inspite of their losses and the hardships...I loved it there.
I guess that is why I really enjoy your blog, I know people have a future there and are healing. I hope there is more to come!
Thank you for sharing so much! Art, cooking, photography and your life!


Thanks so much for commenting on my "31". I came to visit your blog from the comment and so glad I did! I am going to have to make these (and add your blog to my reader)

I'm going to have to make these ASAP! My niece is a pumpkin *anything* fanatic. I guess I'll surprise her when she comes for her next visit. Thanks for sharing! :)

YUM! I'm passing this along to my daughter, she will LOVE them! It's so nice when they are old enough to use the kitchen on their own!
