I started this blog in 2006 shortly after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. I lived there for nearly 15 years, ever since I moved there to attend college at Loyola University. After the storm, I was separated from most of my family & friends, who are still spread out all over the country. This is the place where I share my thoughts & experiences with them since I have relocated in California, lived in Los Angeles for 4 years and am now in Costa Mesa, CA. And my journey continues.

Thanks to everyone for a fantastic birthday!
What a fantastic week-long birthday celebration! Start at a crazy night in Manna Korean BBQ in Los Angeles where we celebrated all Nov Birthdays! It was great getting everyone together and seeing my friend Giulia, who was here in Cali for work. It just so happened that the one time I could see her was the night of Manna!
Next was a fun dinner at the house with some friends right before Rose took off for Pcola! Thanks Rose for making the delicious spinach sald (which included goat cheese, beets and walnuts- yum!), getting the beautiful cake and cake-pops (which Chops loved!) and to Jeff for getting together some peeps and making the food as well!
And then for my special birthday celebration last night that Jeff put together for me... Above is a pic of us at Mimi's to get pedicures (the best ever!) and for the delicious steak dinner at Flemmings. Seriously- this was the best birthday ever and now I just have to top this for next year!
Thanks to the whole family for all the phone calls and text messages and blog posts- I feel so loved and so thankful to have all of you in my life. I have the best family and friends in the world! I feel very blessed. Thank you god for giving me another year of life and hopefully many, many more-- like mom said in her singing message she left for me on the phone! Love you guys!
