New Orleans Nostalgia
It's funny how these bouts of nostalgia hit.
Just a few weeks ago I wrote about moving to France and the point of no return, and yet here I am today after watching a cooking show that took place in southern Louisiana and New Orleans, feeling incredibly homesick.
We only lived in New Orleans for a few years, but it definitely got under my skin.
I do know what it means to miss New Orleans.
I try to return almost every year and while I'm there I eat (best food city in America!), soak up its rich atmosphere and celebrate. Because that's just what you do.
Because almost every day there seems to be some kind of celebration in New Orleans. For music. For crawfish season. For cocktails. For living in a great neighborhood. For holidays and for non holidays. Because it's the weekend. Because it's a Tuesday.
It doesn't matter...New Orleans simply celebrates. Everything.
So I've decided to take a little trip down memory lane to easy my homesickness until my next visit.
I think I'll go and make some jambalaya for dinner tonight.
