Today is Wednesday and I'm heading out this afternoon on a flight to New Orleans! My friend Jessica and I visited for a day when I was on tour with the LPGA in 2008 and have been dying to go back ever since.
When I was there the first time, the city was a virtual ghost town. A hurricane was approaching and I'm thinking that with Katrina, these folks don't play. Can you blame them? Never the less, it was a little eerie. I can't imagine what it will be like when I go back this week. With the Final Four wrapping up and Easter around the corner, it's going to be an entirely different experience.
There's something I just love about all the quaint little shops, cafes, bars, clubs, and bakeries lining the brick streets all bunched together in rows. I love that there are hardly any chains. Everything is family owned, unique to the city, or otherwise rare. The food here is out of this world and every time I visit a city like New Orleans, I'm sure to order the local flair. I'm embarrassed to say however, that I've never had a Po'boy or Muffaletta. I hope to change that this trip.
Anyway, I'm super blessed to be going back and so excited. I'll be working the first couple days and then enjoying my weekend exploring the city. Can't wait to share the memories with you all!
