This post is a little different from the usual, but with a love for Architectural Digest, and my hometown, I had to share.

Sometimes, it’s not until someone else writes about your hometown that you then realize your true appreciation. I recently discovered a piece on New Orleans {by Architectural Digest} that made me feel so good, about the place I call home. The article is a look at the city through the eyes of New Orleans insiders, and a few that just so happen to have very famous names.

One of the architects interviewed for this piece, Tom Kundig, tells the story of listening to a local band at a bar on Frenchman St., when out of no where, a harmonica playing, Stevie Wonder appears on stage. Stories like that is what makes this city such an interesting place, a place that welcomes everyone, and is in fact so welcoming that even Stevie Wonder feels right at home, playing his harmonica, in a small, smokey, dim lite,  New Orleans establishment. And that my friends,  is the stories we like to share.

  2. I live in Pascagoula, so New Orleans is like a second home. Have you ever been to Sucre? They’re petite fours are beautiful… And its on Magazine St next to a gorgeous little antique place.

    • I absolutely love Sucre! I live very close to the Magazine St. location, and I have to admit, I visit it a little too often! 🙂 They have a great iced coffee too! Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
