Changing of the Guard

What an adventure it has been! But now the time has come for us to start a brand new adventure.

This afternoon we handed off our beloved live-in work of art to a new owner and “curator”—Nancy Gunn.

In an interesting twist of fate, we’re about to become nomadic, wandering North America for the next couple years in an RV. On the other hand, for the last several years Nancy has been wandering the globe as a producer for The Travel Channel and The Amazing Race.

So our roles will reverse. While our wanderlust kicks in, she’s ready to stay in one place for a while.

And we can’t imagine a better place for her to have chosen than the Sweet Olive. Nancy hails from Virginia, but first came to New Orleans for graduate school at Tulane, and is delighted to be returning.

We think Nancy’s warm personality, infinite patience—and baking skills—will ensure that this very special B&B becomes even more so.

The last nine years have been an amazing experience for us. We’ve had the privilege of hosting folks from all over the world, and all walks of life. And we’ve made some lifelong friends along to way.

Thanks to all of you for making this an amazing chapter in our lives.

This is not farewell, just au revoir. We hope that you’ll follow along with us as we write the next chapter on our new blog:
