new orleans, and a new year

Images from a quick trip to New Orleans we made this past weekend.  It was great to get away, enjoy breakfast in bed, and see the sights and sounds of New Orleans.  The weather was overcast, but perfect for walking around the French Quarter.

I am looking forward to this new year.  I always feel like the new year is a clean slate, a renewed chance to start new, start fresh.  Surely,  many good things to come.

And many thanks to Kirstin for inviting me to participate in "Conversations" on Mortal Muses.

Happy New Year!
