Here are the signs that Tatiana made me for my surprise in New Orleans. Ginger had to point them out to me because I was just not catching onto the surprise. Even then I looked at the sign and though "Huh, that's odd that someone named Trixie is getting picked up at the airport. How weird.". Finally I caught on to their mischievous activities and was VERY excited and happy to see everyone together!
I also bought a piece of art in New Orleans. I truly believe that "art" is whatever you love and whatever speaks to you. It doesn't matter if you buy it from a city gallery or from a sidewalk street vendor. In this case I spotted this work right away in Jackson Square. I decided to wait since we hadn't even started to walk around yet but I ended up coming back to it. Here I am with the artist and with the picture now displayed in my kitchen.
