Picture Perfect!

So my mom is turning into this fabulous photographer! Here are some pics she took in New Orleans! I'm so proud of her!
***a little history moment....
My grandmother on my dad's side came from Sicily to New Orleans when she was a little girl. Her dad owned a barber shop in the French Quarter(actually on Royal St.), and her family lived upstairs. So, my dad grew up in New Orleans, and I grew up going to visit my grandparents there. New Orleans has always had a very special place in my heart...I feel some sort of overwhelming peace and freeness when I'm there. It's just as special to my parents too as they still visit often even though my grandparents aren't around anymore. People think I'm crazy when I say this, but I would really love to move back one day, and if all the cards play out right I will have a home right near Audubon Park where my kids can come home and feed the ducks in the afternoon, walk to St. Charles Ave. for Mardi Gras, ride their bikes with me down to Whole Foods, visit Hansens on every hot summer afternoon that they want, & know the non-tourist side of the French Quarter. What a dream...I guess we'll see what God has in store for us :)
