Good morning loves! For all our friends and family in the Houston area I pray that you all are safe and flood free! Man, that rainstorm was no joke! I was happy to see it let up early yesterday evening and I really hope all of you stayed safe and ended the day with minimal to no property damage!
Thankful there is currently no rain this morning…yet. Hoping we can all get to the office or wherever we need to be without too much trouble!
Let’s take a look at some OOTD inspiration for a sunnier day!
For those of you who read my New Orleans recap (which I hope you did!) I mentioned an amazing tour that I got the opportunity to take while on my work trip.
Founded by Brad Pitt in 2007, The Make It Right Foundation has broken ground in a couple of states, but they started their amazing work in New Orleans, LA. The lower 9th ward was an area hit the hardest by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 so that’s when the good hearts of the foundation decided that’s where they wanted to start their work. As of my tour last Thursday, they have built 112 sustainable homes that are energy efficient, built to meet the highest standards in green building and designed by renowned architects from around the globe. Make It Right gives families the opportunity to work closely with these designers and builders to personalize their homes to make them their own. Not only do they help them financially get into these homes they ensure the homes are being built in the most efficient manner so that they do not become a burden for the families in the years to come. We had the honor to have dinner with the COO of the organization and he told us all of the many great things still to come. One things includes a community inspired “marketplace” for all of the neighborhood, locals and even tourists to enjoy. I am so happy I got to take this tour and I am excited to see how it grows.
Please check out the links below because they tell the story best! Also, be sure to add this to your list of things to do when in New Orleans!
Thank you so much for reading guys! This is a great reminder to donate our time and/or monetarily when we can!
Wishing you a blessed Tuesday!
