lovely city....


day five in new orleans and i am absolutely loving everything about this place. there is so much history and soul here, the air feels dense with the spirits of people who lived here and passed and loved it so much they never wanted to leave. the architecture in the french quarter is lovely and quite a contrast to a lot of the parishes that got hit by Katrina.


it has been so much fun doing construction, using power tools, and building. my body is sore at the end of each day and i feel such an accomplishment like none i've ever felt sitting in front of the computer and moving around papers. maybe i'll run away and build houses with habitat. probably won't happen but it's tempting.


this is an the old court house in st.bernard parish that was used as a morgue after katrina hit.


i love power tools!
