I Heart New Orleans (part 1)

We arrived back to NY yesterday
and the bf and I are already planning
our next trip to the crescent city.

We had such a great time, 
ate amazing food, and I became
somewhat addicted to one of their
local beers. The Abita Strawberry.
It's so magical, if you can find it
I suggest you try it.




















I'm thinking the topic of New Orleans
is going to be a 3 part post.
This one will be devoted to randomness, 
the next will be for food, and the last 
will be for haunted places.

Here are a few pictures from our trip.

This is us at the Gazebo Cafe, where we
drank our Abita's and listened to live music



















This is the view of Jackson Square, which 
is quite a lovely place to hang out.
But the church kind of made us feel like
we were taking our picture by Cinderella's Castle
in Disney World...
















This was my favorite building..I'm a sucker 
for balconies. and this city is full of them!



















This is my favorite picture!
We visited the aquarium, and this is 
my new friend. I said hello to many of 
the fishes and animals there.
