Our Week in New Orleans in Pictures

You might’ve noticed a little bit of an absence in the past week. That’s because we took a trip down to New Orleans (and around the South).

    So glad you enjoyed Mobile and Fairhope! We live in Daphne, which you would have driven through to get from one to the other. Aren’t the lit up trees in downtown Fairhope just beautiful??!! Where did you guys eat while there? Looks like it was probably Fairhope, but I don’t recognize the mural in the photo off hand.
