sometimes you just need to hop in the car and drive south. devin, tara & i were only gone for a quick weekend but the 75 degree weather was glorious! it was 25 degrees and icy when we left memphis and when we pulled back into town it hadn't changed much so we couldn't have chosen a more perfect weekend to get away!
the day before we were supposed to leave, our airbnb reservation got pulled out from under us but thankfully my boss was able to connect us with his extended family who graciously hosted us last minute! thanks to their suggestions, we ate a delicious cajun dinner at a hole in the wall place called the gumbo shop and then snagged a table at cafe du monde and ended the night with beignets and cafe au lait. the next day we explored the several parts of the city really thoroughly before heading to see friends in hattiesburg. look for those photos soon!
