What does it mean to live "la vie Creole"? To eat, drink, and be merry, to be sure! Of course, life in post-Katrina New Orleans offers a decent amount of struggles. But it just brings us closer together.
Why is it "La Vie Creole" and not just "The Creole Life"? Well, one of the most significant aspects of being Creole was speaking French. My grandmother spoke French until she started first grade. I love all things French!
