I can't believe it's been over 6 years since we moved from New Orleans. We were discussing it last night. I asked hubby, "Have we really lived in Texas that long?" In a way it seems like yesterday but on the other hand it feels like a lifetime ago. I enjoy Texas and I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to live in Austin/Houston. But it still doesn't feel like home. Something about New Orleans always feels so warm & fuzzy (familiar) when you go back. It's not just family and friends but the whole New Orleans culture. There's just a way of life back there that's hard to explain to someone who's never been. Sure the music and fantastic Creole food is really great but the people really make it special. When I close my eyes I can smell the sweet pralines in the air, the sounds of the Dixie bands, and the old shabby ceiling fans slicing through the thick humid air. Of course I don't love the hot humid summers but I think I'll be too busy to notice or care.
C-Ya when I get back!!!
