Hale Boggs Memorial Bridge

Hale Boggs Memorial Bridge
Luling, LA  Destrehan, LA

Jason and I had a great time with my parents while they visited from Phoenix, Arizona. We discovered new places, and it was a lot of fun showing them our "new" city. It is hard to believe that we have been living in Louisiana for ten months now. It feels like just yesterday that we pulled up to our apartment complex in our bright yellow Penske truck. Something that I love about living here is driving over all the bridges, and seeing the Mississippi River on a weekly basis.

St. Louis Cemetery No. 1

St. Louis Cemetery No. 1
New Orleans, LA

Just in time for Halloween! There's nothing more spooky than an old cemetery, especially in New Orleans. This is the most famous cemetery in the area, and it is where Marie Laveau the "Voodoo Queen of New Orleans" is buried. Legend has it that if you mark three X's on her grave she will grant you one wish.
