Next came the big move. As time always seems to do when you are enjoying life, it flew, and our two years in New Orleans were over. We took one last look at Uptown, our shotgun house, and happy life there, packed up the dog, Grits, cat, Corn Muffin, three live oak trees, our son and piled into our Expedition for the 1,000 mile drive. Our trek led us to Richmond, VA and the first home we owned. My husband took a position to practice law at McGuireWoods. Oh it was good to be back in Virginia, but so sad to say goodbye to NOLA! But with my parents right up the street from us in Midlothian, VA, it was amazing how much more “me” time I now had.
After boxes were unpacked, walls painted, and rooms decorated, I used my “me” time to work on my overdue book. There was much to do!
