New Orleans 2014

New Orleans was full of laughter, ridiculousness and indulgence. It was just what I needed for a belated birthday trip. I purposely booked to go right after Mardi Gras so I didn't have to deal with the insanity and drunks - there are insane people and drunks there on the regular so I knew I wasn't missing out on much. I went for the French Quarter Fest and it was way more my speed. And by my speed I meant the crowd was mostly 50 years old and over so... make of it what you will.

We did tons of exploring - Audubon Park, Bayon Sauvage National Wildlife Refuge, 9th Ward, The NOLA Art House, New Orleans City Park (we picnicked underneath the wind chime tree and it was magical).

I didn't have my camera with me half the time. I wanted to enjoy my trip rather than worry about capturing all the moments instead of living them.

Here are a few of my snaps from last week. Mostly quiet moments.
