Best of Baton Rouge

I am so loving my new hometown, especially now that I have a car! I've been exploring a bit more, have joined a lovely knitting circle full of girls my age, and am working like crazy over at the law school. Now Mardi Gras season is pretty much upon us, too... I've already eaten at least three king cakes, have ordered a custom designed hair fascinator to wear to the parades, and am finding myself inexplicably drawn to anything in green, purple and gold!

I haven't made it down to New Orleans yet, but that's in the works too... I should be going down there for a training session next week. It'll be nice to revisit a city that I haven't seen since 1999! Today, while shopping at one of my favorite local shops, Coyote Moon, I even found a book on the history of New Orleans voodoo, which I'll probably go back and buy as soon as I get paid.  Maybe I can add it to my Pagan Reading Challenge...

All in all, this is such a cool place with so much to do and learn. There must be a reason why all the vampire novels are set in Louisiana, right? What a fun and mysterious place, my new hometown...


  1. You know, I need to plan to swing (way) down there and visit you.

  2. Haha! Yes! A bunch of you guys do. I still think this would be the perfect place for a Time Travelers event!
