A Year Ago At This Time...

It's been a whole year now, since our lives were turned upside down, thanks to Hurricane Katrina. This week was a time for remembering everything that we have been through this past year. We have come a long way and things are getting back to "normal" for the most part. New Orleans is still not the same, but it's coming along and in time, hopefully it'll be better than before the storm.

It was also a year since I met Brian in Walt Disney World on the evacuation trip. My life has changed so much since Katrina...and for the better in many ways, thanks to Brian. We celebrated our "Meeting Day" anniversary this past week. We went to see the IMAX movie, Hurricane on the Bayou and had a nice dinner at Brigtsen's on Saturday. Brian really made it a great weekend. Our first date was not until October 15 of last year, but I think the day we met is a significant one as well. (To the right is a picture we took on Thursday--the anniversary of our meeting day.) :)

It's so hard to believe everything that has happened in the past year. We have had some very hard times and some great times. I have learned a lot from everything, especially not to take anything for granted and that material things don't matter. The most important things in life are family, friends and our health. I think we are all stronger people now and can survive even the toughest days that come our way. Now it's time to move forward, but we will always remember how our lives were changed a year ago at this time.
