If you follow me on instagram, then you know me + my man headed to New Orleans this past weekend to celebrate my dad’s 60th birthday. NOLA is a place my parents and their best friends have visited every year for over 30 years together. My dad has had his 40th, 50th and now 60th birthdays there. This was the first year me and my sisters were invited! It was so fun and I have a few stories to tell you this week. but first…
I took my big girl camera with me on our New Orleans adventure this past weekend. It’s something I want to press into…I don’t want to take it for granted that I have a nice camera + I love to take pictures. I don’t normally take pictures of “things”, I have a weird aversion to needing people in my photographs, but this weekend I happened to snap some of New Orleans beautiful architecture. It was just so dreamy. So different from what I’m used to, so much rich history and culture and tradition.
I have many stories of this weekend celebrating my dad’s 60th birthday – but until I get recover from all the food we ate enough to think straight, here are a few images of our time walking the streets. Antique shopping, eating, drinking, more eating, and walking from here to there. enjoy friends!
for those interested, here’s where we ate, shopped and played:
hotel: Ritz Carleton [thanks dad!]
[really cool, my grandfather and his mom used to shop at Royal Antiques. love that tradition!]
