French Quarter Balconies.
One of the many things that I love about New Orleans is the architecture. Balconies are pretty coveted here. If a restaurant or bar has a great balcony... you are in business! The photographed balcony has a few modern touches but the cascading greenery made it a delightful site.
We all know how much I love footwear... well this one was no exception. I only find this trend refreshing on young girls. Females over the age of 13 shouldn't be wearing sequins boots unless they work in entertainment. Although, a little sparkle doesn't hurt anybody.
Beignets and Cafe au Lait
This will never get old...ever. If you have the pleasure of being near a Cafe Du Monde, YOU MUST GO.
A Charmed Gate.
These gates are located right outside of the entrance of the Court of Two Sisters. The gates were forged in Spain and Queen Isabella had them blessed. The Queen wanted the gates to pass on their charm to anyone who touched them. And yes, I did touch it. :)
Yummy Family Traditions.
Anytime there is a celebration at the Espinoza home... berry chantilly cake from Whole Foods is a must. This particular event was my sister's birthday. It's such a delicious and pretty cake.
