MAY quickly passed us by...........
"Moonlight on the bayous
Creole tunes fill the air
I dream about magnolias in June
And I'm wishin I was there" ~ Louis Armstrong
the song tells the story..........about missing new orleans........... this is really where I am meant to be, I do believe.........everything about the city, the town, the suburb (other than the driving around there) is me
I love the smells, the people, the sites, the food and the fun............. I hope one day I get to return for ever....... for now I just visit from time to time
We were fortunate enough to have a trip to New Orleans that we could combine our pleasure with business.......... the husbands work / meetings were to be held there and we were also offered a stay in N'awlins by the Total Rewards Program thru Harrahs.......... oh yea babe............ we stayed, we played, we visited and then we had to leave......... I have tons of great memories from the visit. I can't wait to return there in the future, for another visit and then maybe one day I can move back to my home.
After returning home , Faith and I took off for another jaunt to NC to visit my oldest daughter and be there for my granddaughters birthday. I She just turned 8. How wonderful it is to see my grandchildren grow up and blossom. My granddaughter is taking after my daughter, athletically, she is a "natural" at just about everything she tries. Here she is in her snazzy pink helmet as catcher of her "tball" team, I was so happy to get to see her play!
In May I was also fortunate enough to be invited to a luncheon of PM employees (retired) by a friend of my husbands in May. I was able to make some nice new friends and meet in person some of my facebook friends I had not had the opportunity to do so before! I love to meet new people and had a wonderful time with this bunch of wonderful people who made me feel quite at home!
I love my life, I love to grab it by the horns and squeeze every piece of pleasure I can from it. I often think about moving as I have been in one place now for 21 years, my gypsy soul is restless........... but then I think of how easy it is for me to visit many parts of the united states that would be difficult to do otherwise and I rethink that thought............ I need to win the lottery where I could just travel all of the time, or buy several places around the USA .....or get a job that entails mucho travelo..... or just keep "doing what I am doing" .............I am having fun most of the time after all!
