A Very New Orleans Holiday Recap


Over Thanksgiving weekend, my family opted to do something a little non-traditional and head out of town for the holiday. Rather than my sister, Kelly, coming back to St. Louis from her current city of Baton Rouge, my mother, father and I headed down South to celebrate with her there. After a night in Baton Rouge catching up with Kelly over a stitched together Thanksgiving dinner and a bottle of rosé, we headed even further South to New Orleans.

We were incredibly lucky to have 65-degree weather days the entire weekend, with lots of street musicians to keep us company, a fabulous tour guide to keep us laughing and informed, and plenty of NOLA liquid hospitality to keep us feeling good. One night resulted in accidentally ending up onstage at a drag show, 4:30am diner hangs, and the hangover of the year. Nothing a little drunken brunch couldn't help, of course.

I really enjoyed making my Portland recap, so I continued the tradition with our Thanksgiving weekend. Thanks again for watching!
