Returning north from the south in July is no joke lovies…FREEZING over here. I’ve forgotten how to drive which is fantastic in its own right. But seriously, if you ever get the chance to visit New Orleans in the summer, TAKE it! Just get the Christmas sweater onsie prepared for early use when reality arrives back home.

This trip was everything I needed to it to be and then some which all the glory goes to Jesus because…He is the BEST of course! Oh how I wish I could stay south, it is just so ME! Plus you know it’s bad when the therapist agrees moving would be ideal. However, this is in God’s hands and I’m good with that because it’s exactly where it should be. For now I will LOVE every ounce of the summer travel adventures. I used to dislike travel but I’m so in love with new places I could make this travel gig a regular thing, EASILY.


This right here is one of the oldest surviving structures in New Orleans and has been called the oldest structure in the United States housing a bar. This is how we do in the Big Easy peeps. Drop the tween off after they peck at you a million times of your lack of intelligence and proclaim it’s afternoon slushee time! Then fill up the brain you apparently don’t have with history. NOLA life, rough on the feet but great on the spirit. Speaking of spirits, it is said to be one of the more haunted places in the French Quarter. Perhaps because historically it was a site of contraband, intimidation, extortion and criminal activity. Whoa, the Lafitte family are not portrayed as our most upstanding of historical citizens. #notalternativefact #biography


Perhaps the source of it’s haunting? Just a thought. Even the supposed spirits in this old building don’t shut up, LOL. One thing is for sure, the streets and buildings are filled with activity for every generation.

Proverbs 3 on trusting the Lord.

My child, don’t lose sight of good planning and insight. Hang on to them, for they fill you with life and bring you honor and respect. They keep you safe on your way and keep your feet from stumbling. You can lie down without fear and enjoy pleasant dreams. You need not be afraid of disaster or the destruction that comes upon the wicked, for the Lord is your security. ~Proverbs 3:21-26

So then, travel as much as you can, as far as you can, as long as you can. Life is not meant to be lived in one place. Just ask Cocoa Major however, his heart and tricks are NOLA all the way!
