This guy was a character. I was trying to get the street sign in the background, but he kept jumping in the shot. Oh, the French. You gotta love fun people :]

New Orleans Jazz Fest

really chose to visit New Orleans this weekend for the Jazz and Heritage Festival. I am pretty obsessed with Billy Joel and I would have died to go see him and Ben Harper the weekend before, but the plans didn’t work out with my schedule and I went May 5th instead. The main show was The Black Keys and I got to sneak away to see Aaron Neville AND Taj Mahal that day too :]

The week prior, it POURED down rain everyday, so it was nothing but muddy, mucky mud and solid, dirty mud. I really should have packed my rain boots cuz the old reliable sneaks took a little beating that day.

The Court of Two Sisters has a fantastic Sunday brunch and the BEST mango margaritas I’ve ever had. You gotta try one.

The St. Louis Cathedral

I didn’t want to take too many pictures in the church, but it’s absolutely beautiful. Stained glass everywhere and beautifully carved wood fixtures and the organ, my gosh!
