I drove from Northern Virginia to New Orleans....in like 1 millions hours! (or so it seemed)
Some artistic road work sighs.
When I was little growing up in the South we would always see these signs painted on old barns beside the road. It is one of the fondest memories of my mother, who passes away from cancer when I was 13 and she was 33. I also reminds me of going home to Georgia because there was one of these barns we had to pass every time my grandparents picked me up for a visit.
Arriving at the convention 2015
So proud of the YAM Virginia State Flag Winner: Christena Smith
Meeting Donna Staten from Pinterest was awesome...I took her to the airport. It felt like meeting a rock star! https://www.pinterest.com/artgirl90/
And of course Cassie Stevens
Although I could not eat the beignets at Cafe Du Monde because of my new years resolution of no sugary treats in 2015 it did not stop me from smelling them.
The French Quarter
Artisan street market
The Vender floor
The resin workshop I attended, that is my heart right up front.
Went to see an event hosted by my cousin-in-law Jon, who is the man-about-town to know in New Orleans.
My 2nd cousin, Will who lives in New Orleans and is the perfect southern gentleman.
Leaving New Orleans headed for spring break. Does anyone know why the birds line up like that and then when another bird squeezes in they all rearrange to have equal spacing? These are the things I think about at red lights!
