🎶the neighborhood – scary love
New Orleans vibes✨
не нравится? уходи!
почему люди насильно заставляют сами себя жить с кем-то или делать то, что им не по душе? находят тысячи оправданий и перестают радоваться по-настоящему🤷🏼♀️
-ой, Ир, советы легко раздавать!
да вы думаете, я не такая же?
знаете фразу из песни «он оглянулся посмотреть, не оглянулась ли она, чтоб посмотреть, не оглянулся ли я». это про меня. полностью и бесповоротно. до последнего буду верить, что оглянется же🤦🏼♀️
но как приятно все-таки вычеркивать ненужных нам людей, когда понимаешь, что жизнь без них становится куда легче♥️

Marcela’s Creole Cookery, located on 106 James in #PioneerSquare, closed on Dec 22, 2017. The restaurant opened on February 11, 2008, featuring authentic #NewOrleans & #Cajun cuisine. It was a partnership between chef Anthony McDonald, who’s from #NOLA & brought 25 years of experience in the restaurant industry there & many of his family's recipes -- and co-owner Marcela Fuenzalida, bringing her own experience in the restaurant & financial industry. #Marcela’s menu offered Po-Boys to Etouffee to Boudin to Fried Alligator to Bread Pudding to Fried Chicken Fridays, & they also hosted weekly Sunday #CrawfishBoil parties during crawfish season (“We gonna suck the heads and pinch those tails, Cher!”) – complete with live jazz music. And of course #FatTuesday & #MardiGras festivities – Anthony had his own marching contingent every year - the costumes flamboyant, the brass blowin & the beads flyin. They also offered #Cajun cooking classes in the restaurant. #MarcelasCreoleCookery had a warm, old-school vibe – with a huge colorful party mural (which said “Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler” – Let the Good Times Roll in Cajun French) and dollars bills stuck up on the ceiling. In 2009 Marcela's was honored with a menu exhibit at The Southern Food and Beverage Museum @eatdrinksofab in New Orleans for bringing #Creole flavors to the #PNW in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. From their closure announcement: “We have come to the end of our 10 year lease and although we are proud of what we have been able to accomplish in that time, we are ready to close this chapter. We appreciate the support you have all given us throughout that time. We will cherish the memories and of course the friendships that we have made, and will always be thankful for this chapter in our lives.” Marcela moved to California to care for her uncle, & Anthony moved back to Louisiana with plans to open another restaurant. #Seattle is now a little less vibrant & vivacious without Marcela’s. Share your Marcela’s memories! Thanks to @DDeitz_ for the tip. #RIP#CajunSeattle#CreoleSeattle#creolecooking#seattlecommunity#seattlemardigras#seattlecharacter#seattlemusic#seattleculture#vanishingseattle
A friendly reminder to myself, all the friends I have who want more out of this world!
Repost @buildyourempire “It’s one thing to talk about your destiny. It’s one thing to dream about your destiny. It’s one thing to look at your destiny. But it’s another thing – it is another thing – to make the decisions. To wake up when you know you supposed to wake up! Listen to what I’m telling you! To write when you don’t feel like writing that paper. To say no to that party, that you know, is not going to help you, to make your dreams become a reality. Listen to me! No, to sleep when you should be working out. Saying no to quitting when you still got a hundred more shots to make. Saying no when your body says stop, but you put in fifty more push ups! You can’t just talk about it! You gotta be about it!” – Eric Thomas
