hey...remember me?


I promise I have some really, really legit excuses for such a lapse between posts.
Number one: the fabulous Jessica Lorren came to town for a visit and photo shoot (images below)
Number Two: Hogs for the Cause in City Park was an all-out, weekend-long pork extravaganza that took some time to recover from.
Number Three: I started a NEW JOB! At this place:
Hotel Monteleone, THE New Orleans hotel...established in 1886. Such a historic landmark in the city, which has too many distinguishing honors to get into right now. I'm the new Executive Assistant to the VP and Hotel Manager. A very big-girl job, and one that I was more than ready for!

Snaps from Hogs for the Cause:

And finally, the work of the incredibly talented Jessica Lorren...such a sweetheart and a wonderful new friend!
