There were too many gorgeous moments on the Louisiana trip and it’s hard to talk about the trip and tie it all together because we managed to squeeze so much into it. This won’t entirely make sense and in the correct spot in the timeline. But here are my NOLA highlights.
Meeting Chris and entirely losing ourselves in conversation all afternoon // finding the perfect house in Slidell // both the Tool & the Weeknd performances @ Voodoo blowing me away // Clover Grill grits – best I had in NOLA // listening to beautiful jazz on a record player at the Ace // beignets at Du Monde multiple mornings in a row // the crazy outfits @ the French Quarter // trying a hand grenade at Tropical Isle // bananas foster literally made right in front of me // swamp tour! // BABY GATORS // Seahawks game against the Saints (even though we lost – it was close!) // St. Roch cemetery // getting beads thrown at us on Bourbon Street // watching two wedding parades on the same day // the harmonica guy and his joke // The Carousel Bar // Audubon Insectarium // Lake Pontchartrain (and learning how to pronounce that) // finally meeting Rei (after 15 years of friendship)
