Last May, as a surprise getaway, my man brought me to New Orleans for my birthday. Put aside the hurricanes and details of crime and sin, this is a beautiful city. I LOVED walking the streets listening to Jazz musicians play at every corner. The smells of fried chicken and gumbo. The French Quarter is truly amazing. Galleries, theaters, the aquarium....
Since this trip, I have been trying to figure out how to in corporate the southern feel to every detail for our 'wedding' (still working on the ring ; D ). Right down to the corn bread, I dream of it all.
Oh, and before I forget, the food also has to be damn amazing. New Orleans has the best food I've ever had the pleasure of tasting. It's amazing how much a regular meal you can make at home becomes so much more when you eat the same thing in NOLA. If you've never been, I suggest you go. New Orleans is the last truly authentic town in the US and people need to know it. Go to the south. Enjoy your lemonade.
