In 1998, I went to Fan Fair (now CMA Music Festival) in Nashville, TN. Back then, it was held at the Fairgrounds - it was hot, crowded, and WONDERFUL! During that trip, I remember thinking to myself that if I ever left New Orleans, I could see myself living in Nashville...
August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast and the subsequent levee failures left New Orleans inundated with many feet of water for at least three weeks. I evacuated in the early AM hours the day before - first to Iowa, then to Indiana, then finally to Nashville, TN. I remained there for six months, since my job had *temporarily* relocated there. Looking back, I am still touched and amazed by the incredible generosity of the people of Nashville, and especially my co-workers there. They truly took us in - fed us lunch, gave us directions (to the mall, to the grocery, to church), and gave us an ear to bend and a shoulder to cry on. I will be forever grateful.
April 2008 - I was accepted as the District Director's Administrative Assistant, a position which requires me to relocate to the District Office in Nashville. As much as I hate to leave New Orleans, I have to say I am excited about the prospect of moving to a new city. There is so much history in Nashville, new places to explore, different sights, sounds and tastes to discover. I am very much looking forward to this new adventure!
