Happy Birthday, Jeff!

Partner. Friend. Son. Nephew. Brother. Cousin. Uncle. Director.
Jeff wears lots of hats!
Happy Birthday to the most wonderful person on this Earth. Today I dedicate my blog to YOU, Jeff Burrell.

Yesterday, I sent an email out to J's friends and family asking for a word that best describes J. Here are just a few words from special people in his life that describe J...

Kind-hearted. Fair. Funny. Devoted. Kind. Stellar. Fun-loving. Legendary. Joyful. Witty. Amazing. Generous. Loving. Fantabulous Soul. Tolerant. Adorable. Southern Gentleman (who happens to be from the North). Thoughtful. Classic. Gentleman. Fun-loving. Loyal. Friend. Happy. Southernized. Hospitable. Warm. Welcoming. Sociable. Cordial.

Now take a trip with me through the years of J!



Oh, LAWD moments….From his Pointer Sisters moves to “passing out early”, this is the Jeff we all LOVE! All in good fun!

And many of J's closest also sent these fine words/thoughts/phrases (I find many humorous. I hope J does too.):
Runs away from cops on horseback well. “Em Plat”. “I’m so excited. I just can’t hide it.” Purple Teeth. Complicated. Canked. Overserved, but always my sober one. Vain, but pretty. Confused, but intelligent. Soft spoken, but stern. Life of the Party. Stick with beer. Crockpots don’t carry themselves. Lawzie Daisy.
Can you guess who wrote what?

Today, we celebrate J with a brunch at Commander's Palace, one of his favorite NOLA restaurants.

Happy Day, Jeff! Love ya!
Cheers, y'all!
