I recently returned from a trip to New Orleans for the Academy of Optometry meeting. I had a poster presentation to show my ongoing research at Indiana University School of Optometry for my Master’s degree. It was exciting to present my research, but I was most excited to see one of my dearest friend, Kim. Kim and I were inseparable during school. She moved back to California after school and I haven’t seen her since her wedding last year. Although we stay in touch, it’s not the same as seeing each other. I also got to know her little sister and my fellow namesake, Linda. Kim, Linda and I explored French Quarters, shopped at the Outlet Collection at Riverwalk, had beignets at Cafe Du Monde, had drinks at The rusty nail and ate at Felix’s Restaurant and Oyster bar on Bourbon Street. Tried the chargrilled oysters…so yummy, love the red beans and the jambalaya, but wasn’t a big fan of the crawfish étouffée. Before I knew it, it was time to return home. I was a little sad to leave Kim, but I know that the next time we see each other, we will be celebrating another milestone in life😊
Thanks for reading!
