Categorizing this Louisiana ‘berg as a foodie mecca, a romantic getaway, a historic charmer, a volunteer/humanitarian project, or a party zone would all be correct, in part.

In Defense of Spontaneity (Madison and Chicago 2016)

Heidi-ho my friends! As summer hits its full post-4th-stride, I hope you’re feeling like you’re making the most of these lovely, fleeting sunny days.  Fact- I don’t always feel that way and it freaks me out.  Because I know what’s coming (winter, people. Midwest winter).  June always holds such promise and anticipation- 3 whole months!… Continue reading In Defense of Spontaneity (Madison and Chicago 2016)
