Since The First Time…

Medallion

“Once you’ve visited New Orleans, the rest of your life will be spent planning to return.

That is…if you ever leave at all.”

I’m a life-long New Jersey resident, but I find bits and pieces of New Orleans everywhere I go.

One twinkle of fine crystal, whiff of incense or wail of a late-night saxophone, and I’m in the Vieux Carre. Standing on the crooked curb, hiding under balconies to dodge raindrops, or running my hands over walls that have witnessed centuries of Crescent history.

Last night we visited Frenchtown, NJ and the marvelous studio of our friends, Linda and Stefan Bright. One look at the chandelier medallion and I discovered the NOLA connection there too.

Thank you for a delicious dinner and a fantastic night of catching up!

Always remember, it’s never too early for Abita Amber in a go-cup.

  1. I love that opening quote. And I have a complete infatuation with New Orleans. I would move there in a heartbeat if I could just get circumstances to work out right…

  2. just beautiful!! I totally fell in love with New Orleans and would move there as well, if I could get a Green Card 😀 What a fabulous city, and the friendliest people I’ve encountered on my travels.
