the aftermath...

the mood in the city is upbeat, everyone excited to get back to their normal routines and pick up the pieces. i can't help but feel immense pride to be a new orleanian in a time like this.
we're a family.

cricket and i took a walk this weekend to explore our neighborhood...

many of the beautiful homes still have their windows boarded up. many have broken windows. mostly it's the tree branch debris that litters the sidewalks. bless our sweet garbage men in a time like this!

her highness wanted to show you how proficient she is at sniffing things. trust me, she's an expert. 

this lone magnolia blossom left on the tree reminded me how lucky we are. to always take time to remember the important things in life and revel in how lucky we are.
