new orleans.

Monday, March 29, 2010

"the moment new orleans sun breaks through the winter cold, people will begin to fill the streets again. they will not wait a second longer to crowd their front porches, sidewalks, and local parks. the frisbees come out and the welcome back parties begin for students. you can smell the barbecues and anticipate the blues music festivals that are sheduled almost every other day for the warm months.

me- i suddenly remember why i moved here. i remember why there are old ladies who sit on their porches, rock back and forth, listing off the hurricanes they've been through. it takes all evening. i remember why we danced at tipitina's until the sweat had soaked through our clothes. we were sober. but we were so high. do you remember walking out of the club and back down the street that night?" - tessa

dear tessa:
nope, i can't say i remember walking out of that club and down those streets. but i dream of the day that i will. i love the thought of new orleans. i love old plantation homes, haunted bed and breakfasts, cajun creole dishes, jazz blaring jams, critters in the bayou, just the feel of it all. i want to experience it. i want to make a vacation out of it. one day i will. but until then, i'll continue to watch kate hudsons "the skeleton key" and dream of this future adventure.

wishy wish.

i really truly wish i could attend parties like this one.
minus the alcohol of course...

but a party with mr. sinatra?
and a long white printed dress and hair-do like this bronzed beauty?
they sure lived in glamour.
i wish this was still the style.

oh well.

half n' half.

i am so annoyed. i made a video of ashley since it's her golden year.
today she turned 22 on the 22nd of march, and my computer is failing me.
it was a good one too. short and sweet and really entertaining.
ash would have loved it.
i wrote a great post last year for her birthday and i dont think i can top it off.
so i thought a movie would do the trick. blast.
long story short:
i love you very much ash.
you're the best cousin.
and friend that i could have asked for.
you bring happiness, laughter and adventure to the table.
you entertain me daily.
you give me the best advice, you're my life doctor.
i think you are so beautiful in every way.
thanks for being a part of my family.
i love you. and happy birthday ashley olsen.
( i still can't believe i always had to be her because you were "named" after ashley.

green, i love you.

dear green.
i've been in love with you for quite some time now. i always wonder if other colors could suite me, but they don't seem to do the trick like you do. we're made for each other. you never fail me. you make everything my lucky little number out in the town! can't wait for spring and summer and the joy you'll bring me.


p.s. on my trip home to georgia i went back to my obsession of designing. i found this amazing kelly green fabric with gold polka dots and put my mom to work. we produced a tasty little treat. i died when we added the cherry on top.... a metal gold flower pendant. watch out anthro. (pictures to be posted soon.)

we get down.

ive seem to of lost my mind.
i forgot to give you a taste of our families dangerous moves.
they are
out of control.
you play the music, we'll dish out a show.
(this was my cousin ashley and jd's wedding reception.)

found this chorus teacher on the internet who has made his 5th graders famous just by doing what he loves most. he's found talent in every one of these kids. given them opportunities. improved their confidence and found a new way to live through music.
i am stunned. famous artists are now discovering these kids. they need to be heard.
please take note how involved they are in every note, every beat, every chord.
they choke me up.
they've got soul.

good day.

this is the definition of a good day:

looking pregnant while riding what could be my 10 year old sons bike...

this might tickle your fancy
