During a recent trip to New Orleans, 007, Princess Van Gogh and I had the pleasure of having lunch at La Petite Grocery. At first you might think we’d had lunch in a grocery store. Let me assure you, it is a restaurant you will not want to miss on your next trip to the Big Easy.
I am not lazy. But, I did go slothing last weekend.
I am a bit slow and very laid back. But, I’ve never hung upside down for hours.
Regardless, I’ve joked for years that a sloth is my spirit animal. I’ve not taken any quiz or test to confirm this, it is just what I’ve said for as long as I can remember.
On a recent trip to New Orleans, 007, Princess Van Gogh and I had the pleasure of hanging out in some the city’s most famous haunts. We were guests of an art auction where our dinners were included; so we took the opportunity to splurge on phenomenal treats, lunches, desserts and cocktails throughout the Big Easy. You can read about the rest of the trip here.

I’m a bit spooked by New Orleans. Spirits loiter there. As a visitor strolling Royal, Bourbon or Decatur streets, I usually feel a bit uneasy in the Big Easy. I am not a fan of Bourbon Street and have had the impression that all New Orleans is like that one street. But, I was SO WRONG! Here’s the peaceful, serene side of the haunted city.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve asked 007 the following question:
“Hey hon, do you remember what year it was that we vacationed on Topsail Island with your brother? Or when did we go to Charleston the first time? What was the name of that theme park we visited in Charlotte?”

A True Southern Gentleman
A true southern gentleman possesses several qualities. He is well-mannered, has a firm handshake and a great sense of humor. He is friendly, doesn’t use profanity in the presence of a lady and knows how to make those around him feel special. And he is never the victim. Add to this the ability to bring life to a blank canvas and you have just been introduced to John Witzel Walters.
Our guide shared with us that there are over a million azaleas and camellias planted at Magnolia Plantation. Most of them were in bloom during a recent visit to Charleston, SC. The grounds were breathtaking, but one of my favorite parts of the tour happened while standing on the piazza before the tour even started.
