The holiday season was exceptionally busy for my little family of two this year. We had my parents and sister down for a week for Xmas, on the 31st the Hubs and I set off for New Orleans for the new year and of course the Sugar Bowl. It was a fantastic long weekend but unfortunately fantastically cold as well. I don't have as many pictures as I had hoped because it was a force of will to even take my naked hands out of my coat pockets to take the photos. I know, I'm a spoiled South Floridian, but that's why I moved down here, so I didn't annoy the entire Mid-Atlantic with my constant kvetching about the cold. All in all New Orleans was a fantastic town and I'd love to visit again (just when it's slightly warmer please).
Some shots from the garden district where our hotel was:
The tomb of Marie Laveau and Plessy of Plessy vs. Ferguson
And some shots in the French Quarter and Jackson Square
