You never realize what you have until it's gone. Isn't that the old saying? I loved growing up in Nola. The Sunday morning breakfasts at Cafe du Monde. The Saturday and Sunday strolls through the quarter. Having a muffaletta at Central or a ham and Swiss at Maspero's. Seeing the Christmas lights at City Park. A Sunday Jazz brunch at Arnuad's. All of those things that I did in Nola became a luxury when I moved out of the city.
At 9:30 we headed back to our hotel in the big city and put two tired tikes to bed. The next morning we ordered them room service and I wondered if they realized how special that was. This was a treat and I hope one day they appreciate it!
