NOLA Adventure Day 4: New Orleans to Atlanta

NOLA Adventure Day 4: New Orleans to Atlanta. Cafe du Monde in front of Jackson Square.

There and back again, and giving Atlanta a second chance. On my last morning in New Orleans, I knew I wanted to make a few quick stops before I left for who knows how long. My first stop of the morning is always breakfast and there was one place that I didn’t actually want to […]

NOLA Adventure Day 3: New Orleans and Baton Rouge

Lace Shirt Redux - Thrift Store Refashion

Visiting thrift stores is addicting. One day you’ll find a Goodwill with the finest 50s furniture, the next a hole in the wall with scary fashion trends you hoped to never see again. Either way, you will always find something to laugh at or that steal you can’t pass up. I found this lovely lace […]
