Ah, Friday!


I took this photo during our trip to New Orleans last year. It was a Sunday night and it had just stopped raining. After dining on oysters at the famous Acme Oyster House, Ian and I stopped for cocktails at a few bars on our "must-see" list while in NOLA. Can you tell by the reminiscing that I am in dire need of a vacay?

I'll reveal where we're going for this year's trip on Monday, but here are some links from around the blogosphere before I wrap up my work week and head to Palm Desert for a mini weekend getaway!

After seeing the recipe for these over on Mrs. Lilien, I'm thinking we might have to make some to sip on by the pool.

Last weekend, Alexa and I met Kristina from nook & sea. Check out her design blog and and stay tuned for more link love for other bloggers Alexa & I connected with at the event.

Speaking of home decor, some serious house envy over at lark + linen.

And on Luella and June.

I think I need this chevron bench.

And how charming are these?

New Orleans is lovely! I went as a child, when I mispronounced "Bourbon", and could not understand how it could be pronounced the way it is. lol.

The photo is beautiful!

This picture is great: it catches so perfectly the spirit of New ORleans. I am a light addicted too when I take pictures.
Have a lovely day!
