April is such a special month for me because April 30th is my wedding anniversary. This year Keith and I will have been married 5 years! I am so excited! I love to look back on all the fun times Keith and I have had together and all the really fun places we’ve been to together. So I am going to start a series for the month of April and once a week I am going to recap a fun place we’ve traveled to together. Our first stop:
New Orleans, Lousianna (circa 2005)
First, we stayed at this adorable apartment right in the French Quarter! It was adorable!! And we felt right at home! This was the sitting room!
And of course we had to check out the infamous Burboun Street! We are such tourists!
We walked to the local (and large) flea market where we scored some fun (New Orleans) must haves:
We explored Jackson Square
We also dined out at some fabulous places! We ate Cajun Seafood at Ralph & Kacoo’s
We ate a fancy shamcy dinner one night at Emeril’s New Orleans
And we explored some night life!
It was such a fun little get-a-way and I felt very fortunate to experience New Orleans before hurricane Katrina. I think that having spent some time there and really enjoying all this great city had to offer made me feel even more of a connection to the city of New Orleans when they were faced with tragedy. We have so many places on our bucket list we want to explore but I definitely plan on getting back to New Orleans one day!
Have you ever been to New Orleans?
