New Orleans is for Lovers

Last weekend, Sam and I escaped our busy lives in Florida to celebrate our two year anniversary in New Orleans! This was a spontaneous trip for us so we didn't know what to do in New Orleans until we got there. We discovered beignets, voodoo, jazz and a love of creole cooking.  The only complaint I have about the trip was that couldn't decide what to eat every meal! In two days I had tried gumbo, jambalaya, etouffee, crawfish, and fried alligator. With all the walking and exploring we really worked up an appetite. I could probably write a whole post on creole food but New Orleans is so much more than just their food. It is an exciting town with so much energy, and exciting people, that carried on well into the night. With all the little shops to explore during the day and all the partying on Bourbon Street at night, it was hard to just stop. Whether it be a jazz band around the corner or beautiful women dancing for peace, New Orleans never stopped entertaining.
