This week, I traveled to New Orleans, which is a place I had certainly never been before. I did several other new things–I attended a wine and painting event (I had never been to one, I had only hosted them). I went on a swamp fan boat tour. I Have never seen a swamp, and to be honest, I had little interest in going to one. However, it was strangely beautiful. I loved the eerie trees and Spanish moss. I also held an adorable little baby alligator.
