The Big Easy...

Anybody who's been to our home knows that we love New Orleans. It was where we met for our first date. And it was a great first date. Minus the severe anaphalaxysis and the trip to the Tulane ER but that's a whole other story. As is the true tale of how we went back there for our first "post-having-twin-babies" weekend. The weekend that Hurricane Katrina hit. No lie. It was crAzy. But life is a roller coaster sometimes.

The owners of the house below know this only too well. Their home was wiped out during Katrina and the house you see now was built to look old and original...this girl. did a painstakingly fantastic job...take a look.

The thing I think I love most about her story is that she used to be a lawyer. During the turmoil of losing their home during Katrina she found solace in finding bargains for her home and fixing them up. She discovered she LOVED rehabbing furniture and that she was good at it. She found a passion and reinvented her life and I love that. Reminds me of the saying "what would you do if you knew you wouldn't fail?"
