When a house builds your life

I just finished this lovely book written by Julia Reed about the renovation of her first grown-up house and how the end of the renovation "dove-tailed" with the storm Katrina. The stories of the renovation are familiar since I was the focus of many a renovation "hissy fit" in New York AND it really gets to the real important things in life; family, friends, a place and house that makes you whole. And always remember there is no such thing as a "carpet emergency" in light of the trails that the citizens of New Orleans faced when re-building their city.
