I was born and raised in, and around New Orleans. After a 15 year stop-over in Mississippi, I'm back in Slidell, LA, which is next door to N.O. on the North Shore of Lake Pontchartrain. Married to Gary since March 1984, we've enjoyed many adventures either on the waters of Louisiana, or traveling on motorcycles. Our children are of the four legged variety and we prefer savory Southern foods made famous in New Orleans, Cajun and Creole kitchens, handed-down Italian dishes, and the bounty of seafood available in our area.
