It's with a very heavy heart that I announce my days here at WGNO are numbered.
As you may know, my husband is a JAG attorney with the US Marine Corps and we've been blessed with 7 wonderful years stationed in New Orleans.
This is where our beautiful boys, Brooks and Beau, were born. This is where we purchased our first home, a 140 year old fixer-upper that we've renovated, top to bottom. The community has embraced us every step of the way.
Our neighbors, friends and co-workers have become family to us. I will forever call this incredible, cultural, dynamic, artistic, diverse and beautifully-flawed city home.
Sadly, Joe recently received orders to spend the next 6 years in Washington DC, beginning in June.
We have a few more months to soak up every ounce of culture here and I intend on making the most of it.
You can expect to see me along the parade routes, in the crowds at Jazz Fest and of course, eating as many meals as I can at Commander's Palace!
There's a bittersweet adventure lying ahead, but until it begins, I'll continue to see you bright and early every weekday on Good Morning New Orleans.
