I say this every time, but I don’t want to leave. Have you ever been to a place where your soul just rests and is at peace? That’s how I feel when I cross the state line to Louisiana.
I’m going to share a few pictures with y’all to share the beauty I see.
The Houmas House is always a fav of mine to visit and I highly recommend it. It’s privately owned but they have restored it perfectly.
Stately Oaks with Spanish moss hanging from the branches
ah lets not forget the swamp it’s as beautiful as it’s dangerous
New Orleans! If you can’t find the beauty in this city you are not looking hard enough. From Jackson Square, Cafe Du Monde, River Boats, and The Mississippi River walk.
This particular place has flown a 50ft flag since I was a lil girl and it’s something I look forward to EVERY time I get into town. It is a beacon welcoming me home!
Visiting Mike the Tiger is a MUST! (For one and all and you don’t just have to be a tiger fan)
Downtown Baton Rouge. Old capital building, USS Kidd, and of course my fav view of the Mississippi Bridge (“new one” I still can’t go over the old one without needing to loose my cookies 😂 Seriously though the old bridge is hard core) “Red Stick”
I hope you have smiled or at the very least have experienced a new side of Louisiana that you have never seen before. I wish I could have taken you along the way or could have stopped and taken a picture of everything I found beautiful a long the way.
Louisiana might not ever be my home again but it will always be home in my heart. It will forever be the place where my heart goes to rest and recharge and I am thankful.
