Suffice to say Louisiana was not for us. While my husband and I may categorize ourselves as “country,” there are a number of things we realized that we could not live without once we attempted to settle into the slow country life we thought we wanted.

  1. Mexican food- not enough can be said about the necessity of good Mexican food.  
  2. Grocery stores OTHER than Super WalMart
  3. Bagels
  4. Sidewalks
  5. Humidity < 80%
  6. Straight white teeth
  7. Beaches (oil free ones)
  8. Smoke free bars
  9. Dog parks (and doggie doo-doo laws for that matter)

While it would have been nice to buy a HUGE house with acres of land where we could hunt and fish and enjoy the great outdoors, the tradeoffs just weren’t there. We are SO happy to be back in the Golden State with the people that we love, in the climate that we love, on the coast that we love. I couldn’t dream of a better place to raise my baby girl!
