Dear Diary,

I've been bad at keeping up with my life. I will be backtracking and filling you in on all the details. Please excuse the repeat outfits as I was on vacation and living out of my suitcase.

Dan and I went to the French Quarter before he dropped me off at the airport. We love New Orleans. It has been a wonderful escape for us while living here in Mississippi. We have had so much fun exploring and having mini breaks there.

We had planned to go to Cafe Du Monde for some beignets but it was bustling and full of school kids. Not a fun combo for a leisurely morning with your husband.

Instead we headed over to Pirate Alley to visit Dan's favorite little bookstore (in New Orleans).

Faulkner House Books is located in the rooms that William Faulkner rented at age 27 in 1925. Dan is a happy man in a bookstore. Well, happier.

It is hard saying goodbye to your best friend.
Two weeks is too long to be apart.

I wish I had been able to get to know New Orleans better. I've loved seeing it and hearing about through you though.
