Am in L.A. at the airport taking off to go to my friends CF and FF’s fabulous holiday party in New Orleans – this is becoming a tradition for me (how many years do you have to do something before it becomes a tradition by the way… anyone know? Huh?)
Found these pictures I took a few years back while in New Orleans visiting CF, FF and their darling son (my godson). These were taken in the middle of Spring in New Orleans about four years ago…quite a different time from the snow flurries that the city experienced yesterday (and before Katrina).
Regardless of the weather or the circumstances, my friends and New Orleans have always been so welcoming to me…an open door…a warm inviting light…lots of good times.
This year AM, JE, and their son are all coming in from New York for tomorrow’s charmed holiday party at CF and FF’s house. Dear friend JH and her husband DH are also coming in from South Carolina. Should be a great gathering of friends!
We’re having gumbo and cocktails on the porch tonight.
Laissez le bon temps rouler!
Update…Le bon temps just stopped rolling…am now sitting on plane and we are here at gate for another 20 minutes while they change some parts? Hmmm…
I’ll be there soon enough! Patience…right? Will try to blog a bit when I am there. Plan on going on a home tour in the Garden District and doing some furniture shopping on Magazine Street…will keep you posted.
P.S. For some reason I brought five (5) pairs of shoes with me…went to Barneys last night to buy some heels…ended up with a few pairs of Prada and a wonderful pair of Manolo Blahniks…did I mention there are two parties tomorrow night? A girl has to be prepared.
Going to log off now and start reading Twilight…tah tah!!! We are taking off!!!
