We know that we will be moving back to Washington in March, and I am so excited...but I know that I am gonna miss many things/people from here in NOLA. I have meet some very wonderful people here, whom I hope I will have in my life for a very long time.
Something about moving that I have learned over the past few years is that you may be removed physically from people, but if the bond is real than it will substain itself.
There is many things/places that I will miss here as well; The quarter, Audubon Park, The Bayou's and swamps. The easy access to amazing food: Po'Boys, Boudin, Gumbo, Jambalaya, Spainsh shrimp, and so on...and I could go on!
Even with all that we are "giving up" I know that we must make this move, I need to be in a place that I feel more secure, and safe for this family. I am sorry NOLA but I have not been able to get that here. The landlords are horrible here, the crime can be REALLY high, there is high level of lead in the soil here, and that is just a few things.
You must also be very strong to live here, I am not that strong.
So in March of 2011, we will be saying goodbye to this city...days after Mardi grais...it is time.
