A year ago this time I was flipping through cyber pages and came across the Holstee Manifesto. I read it, bookmarked the page and found myself coming back to it again and again over the next few weeks.

“Live your dream and share your passion” jumped out at me as if to say “Hey Lynne, this is what it’s all about.” It was at that time I made the decision to make a move to a city I visited back in my college days. 30 years earlier, I stood in New Orleans, Jackson Square to be exact, and promised myself one day it would be my home. That one day is fast approaching and after a marriage, children, divorce, Army career and now corporate career, I am NOLA bound and life could not be sweeter.

Life is so very short in the grand scheme of things, so now I am heeding the words, taking my passions and dreams to a place that has never left my soul. My children support me just as I have supported their life choices and on that note I will say, I’m one lucky gal.

Hey Nola, I’m coming for you and together we will dream of more things!
