For me, Augie’s is like that old friend you see a couple times a year, if you’re lucky, but you pick up right where you left off, as if no time had passed. My old friend will have a new place, but the pieces I love about Augie’s will still be there... the coffee, the people, the community. So, I said goodbye to the red building on my last visit, but I look forward to sharing coffee with friends in the new space soon. So glad everything has come together for you. Excited for new adventures! #iamaugie #coffeepeople #coffee #coffeeaddict #specialtycoffee #ragamuffins #ragamuffinsonvacation #baker #bakerslife #barista #baristalife

Happy 300th Birthday, New Orleans! A city of strength, tenacity, culture, and joy. A place of stories and filled with wonder. My heart longs to be with you, under your oak trees, or down by the river. My head is filled with beautiful memories of all the good times. #iknowwhatitmeanstomissneworleans #happybirthday #tricentennial #nola #celebrate #mommandme #ragamuffinsonvacation #tbt #baker #bakerslife #wheniwasonvacation #onetimeinneworleans

Because I’m hungry and I miss New Orleans food... the best thing I ate (and everything I ate was amazing) on my lil getaway: shrimp and grits from @willajeanneworleans Seriously drool-worthy. Beautifully plated, beautifully made. :) #southernfood #shrimpandgrits #nola #ragamuffins #ragamuffinsonvacation #comfortfood #soulfood #yum #baker #bakerslife #baristalife #barista #nolafoodgramOTW @wherenolaeats

Nearly eleven years ago, I arrived in this storm-ravaged town, a spunky spirited twenty-something, ready to make a difference. This city, its people, its culture, took root in my heart, and I would never be the same. I learned so much about myself, about other people, and about this city and its drive to survive.

Three years later, I left the city, broken, battered, storm-ravaged myself. I wasn’t sure I’d ever be back, that I ever *could* come back.
Eight years passed, years filled with healing and tears and growth and love. and you. All of you. Eight years-an eternity and a blink of an eye.
I can’t put into words the emotions I felt while standing here, in this beloved city, once again. “I’m here. I’m back. For a moment. I have made it.” I had weathered this storm, the worst storm in my life, up to now, (there have been some bad storms in my life, people). It is over, it is behind me. It has helped shape me. I am neither that spunky, spirited twenty-something, nor the broken, battered, barely-there woman that left this city. I am stronger than I ever thought I could be, happier than my sad-self ever dreamed possible.
None of this is because of me alone, but because of God. His grace abounds, his forgiveness heals, his love overwhelms. Because of this, because of Him, I stand here, in one of my favorite places, creating new memories, remembering the good memories, and rejoicing that He can make the bad memories not hurt as much.

Oak trees-their strength, their resiliency, their outstretched arms- welcome me and lend me their strength. #peaceful #strength #oaktrees #trees #optoutside #baker #bakerslife #ragamuffins #ragamuffinsonvacation #citypark

When you don’t have anywhere to be, you can take the time to chase the rainbows at sunset. #baker #bakerslife #ragamuffins #ragamuffinsonvacation #lakeponchartrain #doublerainbow #sunset #sunsetonthelake

If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes. #baker #bakerslife #ragamuffins #insearchofgoodcoffee #ragamuffinsonvacation #coffeecrawl

When you go to a place that’s not home, but the people there remind you of home, you know it’s a good place. #ragamuffin #ragamuffinsonvacation #insearchofragamuffins #insearchofgoodcoffee #coffee #coffeeaddict #baker #bakerslife #barista #baristalife #espresso #espressowithmilk #portolacoffeelab #yum

Sometimes you take the first exit that says "coastal access" and you just follow random signs and you end up at a place like this. #cambria #coastalaccess #rocksandwavesandpeace #happyplace #optoutside #baker #bakerslife #barista #baristalife #vacation #roadtrip #ragamuffins #ragamuffinsonvacation #beach #quiet

Already started the morning with some fun ladies and good conversations, and now venturing out on a beautiful Sunday drive down the coast with coffee stops along the way. #coffee #coffeeaddict #espresso #espressowithmilk #howmuchcoffeecanyoudrink #barista #baristalife #baker #bakerslife #dayoff #sundays #vacation #roadtrip #ragamuffins #ragamuffinsonvacation #yum @spearheadcoffee
