Weekend Trip to New Orleans

TJ and I planned a weekend getaway to New Orleans in January.  I'd never been to the Big Easy before and was so excited for fresh oysters, good drinks, live music and the great arts scene.  I was not disappointed.  New Orleans is a special place, filled with culture, friendly people, good food and amazing music.  I've never felt more relaxed in my entire life!  Here are a few pictures from our trip.

Beautiful Jackson Square

Looking out onto the water. A humid, cool January day. 

Couldn't resist the urge to wear a fresh flower crown!

Our hotel! The Hotel St. Helene. A nice stay, walking distance to the heart of the action!

Delicious oysters! Freshly shucked right in front of us.
