French Quarter Fun

French Quarter New Orleans
The tour starts at a family favorite.

Good morning wonderful followers! It is a glorious day here in the mountains…we are waiting on snow. I am taking you on a little field trip today to New Orleans. History, beautiful design details and food inspiration await you. I am starting at the Hotel Monteleone right in the middle of everything. This hotel is famous—or infamous for the writers who regularly stayed here. We are in the William Faulkner suite! Off to The Court of Two Sisters for lunch and then a stroll around the French Quarter. Grab a cup of coffee, glass of wine and a beignet and have a mini-vacation with me.
