It's true. I always wanted to be a wife and mother. But I never knew how much I would enjoy the days with my little family. We don't have to do anything. A simple stroll in the park by our house will do. Sometimes I feel like the happiest girl in the world, and I know that these are the best days of my life. I catch myself smiling for no reason all the time. Don't get me wrong.. I get in bad moods-- foul moods even. Fortunately, there is always a quick remedy. A laugh with my husband or a snuggle with my baby and all is right with the world.
On another note, I must admit when we moved to New Orleans I wasn't happy. I thought it was too dirty, too hot, and too filled with crime. Stinky, sticky, and scary. So much about it just didn't appeal to this Southern California beach girl. It's still hot as hell in the summer, and there is still too much crime. But there is something about this place that I love. Maybe it's because this is where we began our marriage, and this is where my son was born. But I suddenly appreciate the old homes, jazz in the streets, crazy people that I love, and wonderful history. Feeling very at home here these days. It's become a very charming and endearing city in my eyes.
I guess anywhere my boys are is home to me!
