Well I’m back! It’s been a little over a year but I’ve been traveling & experiencing so much I wanted to document! I will backtrack my photos b/c these are memories I want to have forever! This past weekend was the 4th of July & as usual it was a great time for my family & I! My daughter had plans to spend a few days with her cousins in Nashville, TN so my hubby & I had to make some memories of our own. We ended up road tripping to New Orleans, La as it was the Essence Festival! We went to the concerts, the festival, the convention center the good, drank very good & enjoyed bars & people watching on Bourbon Street. I hadn’t been to NOLA since I was 18 years old so it was definitely a different experience! For the actual 4th of July, we traveled north to Nashville to be with our daughter! Fireworks are not permitted in the town my family lives in, hence no fireworks! In all it was a great time! I hope you enjoyed your 4th of July as well!
