I’ve spent this lazy Sunday catching up on my online reading and came upon a great article from my home state, Mississippi – on the Coastal Living magazine’s website:

Almost three years following Hurricane Katrina’s path of destruction, normalcy hasn’t exactly returned to the MS coast or New Orleans, but from the town of Ocean Spring, MS, a ray of light is beginning to shine, and their thriving artist’s community is to thank for much of the progress that is being made.

    I am so glad you liked my story. I loved Ocean Springs. It is a very cool town with so much going on under the surface. The people were very nice and helpful and it was just a pleasant surprise to find out what a hidden gem it is on the Gulf Coast.
