I am convinced that I am moving to New Orleans.
I cannot remember the last time I had this much fun!
We ate, we drank, we sang, we danced in the street.
I fell in love with the jazz band on the street corner + the carefree vibe of the city.
When I was in Europe last summer, I was a total tourist. I took so many pictures that I wasn't able to savor the moment; enjoy where I was and who I was with. I was completely successful in being present in the moment this weekend and I kind of want to high five myself.
New Orleans is so rich ... rich in everything from culture to food + I took in everything it had to offer - the sights, sounds, smells (at times a bit funky;), the people.
So if you haven't been yet, you must go. And take me back with you!
