It has been awhile since I last published about my crazy life and a lot has happened! So the future hubby and I took a trip to New Orleans to celebrate our engagement and then we later went up to Arkansas to see my family. I have to say that getting in the car and driving 6 hours away from all of the stress of life provides a breath of fresh air. Our vacation was beautiful. I felt so light and happy the whole trip. I got to laugh, eat good food, and wear pretty dresses instead of my ugly school scrubs. I got to cuddle with the Mr. and take daily naps. I could go on and on about how wonderful my trip was but instead I will share some pictures. Stay tuned for my next post 🙂

My favorite place in New Orleans!
William bought a flower crown because obviously I am a princess. We also went to mass in the beautiful cathedral behind us.
I found my inner child while walking around New Orleans with William and a few of our friends. It was beautiful! The streets were full of lights, jazz music, art, and drinks. There was a section of the art gallery that promoted coloring with chalk on the street. I am not artistic so I decided to be that girl who writes names on streets. Also look at my kick butt chucks.
Our last night in New Orleans consisted of actually feeling my age. For once I actually stayed up past 10pm. William, myself, and our friends went out to a jazz bar that was performing live music. I laughed and danced with William and drank enough to be really sleepy. It was the most fun I have had in a very long time. For once I did not feel like a grandma.
So I encourage you to go out and take a breath of fresh air. Go dance, drink good beer, and play with chalk!
