Planting things is too easy. 1) Dig a hole. 2) Put plant in hole. 3) Fill what’s left of the hole with dirt. 4) Pat, pat, pat. Landscaping seems like a great DIY project, so very few of us turn to professionals who know what not plant and where not to plant it. As a result,...

I’m a fan of  Leonidas. Pronounced (lee-ahn-EYE-dis). Or (lee-AHN-i-dis). Or (lee-AHN-druss), for some reason. Mindy and I were one bad inspection away from calling it home. For years, you couldn’t talk to a Realtor about Leonidas without the new Lycée Français high school coming up. And, for years, you could drive by the old (Don’t...

I want to take a quick moment to ask for your help.

As the scope of need grew, so did Culture Aid NOLA’s operation, with two massive food distributions...

“Your home is the biggest investment you’ll ever make.” Next to, “Location, location, location…” it’s the most overplayed, old-school real estate cliche there is. It’s also true for most of us, but it’s treated so differently than your other investments. If you have a 401K or any other investment account, you can log into your portal...

Many of us take note of Veterans Day because banks are closed and we don’t get mail. We carefully word a social media post expressing our gratitude to those who have served in the military and then move on with our day off. For some reason, last year was different for me, and I’m grateful that it was....
