I’m a back from a whirlwind trip to The Big Easy {my first time there} and I loved every single minute of it!  From the bayou, to the French Quarter, the Garden District and let’s not forget about the amazing food.  I think I literally ate my way through the city!  {I of course went to Cafe du Monde every day….sometimes twice a day!}

I normally share pics with you via Facebook but this trip went by so quickly that I only shared a couple.  Here are some of my favorites.

I fell in *love* with the shop Antique de Provence in the French Quarter.  I quite literally could have moved into the store and felt right at home!

And let’s not forget about the homes in the Garden District!





Now I’m back and rested and in the holiday spirit and there is so much going on this week that I can’t wait to share with you.  First off, this week is the 2015 Holiday Home Tour hosted by Marty at A Stroll Thru Life.  You will not believe how gorgeous this Christmas home tours look!

    So glad you like New Orleans! My daughter went to graduate school in New Orleans and I loved getting to go visit her. I went every chance I could :) Such an amazing city with it’s own unique flavor.
