I just celebrated my one-year anniversary of living in the South. My move here from Los Angeles — where I had spent the majority of my life — was quick, unexpected, and more than a little jarring. But I pretty much instantly fell in love with the slower pace of life here in New Orleans, the open friendliness of the people, and the feeling that the neighborhood I moved to was a real community, rather than simply a group of people living near each other.
I’m not going to lie and say I never get homesick for the city where I grew up and all the friends and family I left behind. But whenever I need a little reminder of why the place I live is so special, I just take my dinner outside and eat it on the porch.

I have a pretty fast paced life. I'm fairly successful and travel a lot. Come from a really good family and love to spend the time I have with them and friends.
