There are people who would be perfectly content with sitting outside of their airstream, enjoying the nice breeze and drink beer everyday. Not just that, they would have zero interest or need to move, aka the travel bug.
Not me. I doubt I’d ever reach to that point of contentment. It’s a good thing that meraki got wheels, so I can make my “contentment” portable.
Now, let’s talk about Louisiana. Despite the awful start, it is, thus far, the favorite state for all of us. Unanimously. I admit, I did not expect to fall in love with Louisiana. The foods, the buildings, the nature and the people… just basically shot Louisiana all the way past the top of the pedestal.
I cannot thank Sarah and Tate Tullier enough for being there that night and for being the best host/hostess, they represented the state of Louisiana very well, y'all!!
Not only we were fortunate with fun company, my husband got to experience the trip with us for a week. We were a whole family at the best possible spot. Heck, my husband and I even got to go out on a date (we probably didn't get a date for MONTHS before I left on this trip!!) when we were at new orleans.
With daddy in town, we grabbed every opportunity to see places around nola, layafette and baton rouge.
Our favorite part of the week probably goes to nola, especially the double date we had with the tulliers. we explored the french quarters, bourbon street, jackson square and had the famous beignets at cafe du monde (cajun village at sorrento actually has my vote for the best beignets). We also visited those old cemeteries and stopped at the Ninth Ward (where Brad Pitt rebuilt homes for those damaged by Hurricane Katrina).
The boys were now taken care of at a nice hotel while we went off to our double date fun.
I literally crawled into the hotel's bed and fell asleep as I held onto my favorite Agnes and Dora leggings (vintage camera print given to me as a gift by Karina- @sweetonagnesanddora). I was too tired to put it on (and as a result, it fell in between the bed slabs and I forgot to take it with me, wah!).
The next day, Jason and I took the boys to explore the city before heading back to the "suburbs" in Gonzales.
We did SO much that it simply knocked out our boys and y'all, eitan NEVER naps.
We loved it so much that we'll be back in January. Yo!
just a mother who fled from society's constraints and is super excited to wake up to the outdoors, remain braless daily and teach her boys the art of boredom and discovery.
