08-14-3013: at a “rain garden” in #Gentilly on the corner of Filmore and Wildair. I think that it’s supposed to catch runoff and help to prevent street flooding in the area. Read an article that says there are more planned. Anyone seen them in action? #neworleans #nola #raingarden

08-12-2014: the man at Rouses said it was good, but he didn’t say how good the description was. Fire Chief approved, good for pairing with crawfish.

08-11-2014: I know it’s not Mardi Gras time, but this is how I feel about trying to lose weight in New Orleans (like a naked baby face deep in King Cake). #neworleans #nola #kinrgcake #thickness

View from new office that’s about to be an old office. I go, indeed.

06-17-2014: Baby J made four weeks today. I’m really proud of our little family for keeping each other alive while seemingly trying to kill one another. Go team.

06-01-2014: First family outing at Morning Call and a walk by Bayou St. John. Homeboy had the best nap of his life. My family.

05-20-2014: When after inducing, laboring, and contracting for hours and everything hits the fan (code blue, “he’s going down! He’s going down!”, and an emergency C-Section), I highly recommend a partner like my husband. He stood in front of me and made eye contact and showed me how to breathe as they saved my son from losing out on being the only perfect thing.

I also highly recommend my doctor, who I didn’t always click with… But clearly do now. She made a decision that I truly believed saved my son’s life (whether or not that’s true).

Here is my son, Josol Patrick Corbin with assorted family members: Patrick, me, Lolo (my dad), Yaya (my mom) and Lola (my step-mom).

You can tell he already admires his father and he surely should.
