Week in Pictures: Louisiana and Independence Day

Last weekend I got to visit my parents, sister, and family in Louisiana!


Set sail the sea on my uncle's boat. PS: Madisonville, LA is the cutest town ever.


Trying Oysters for the first time! Oysters. Crab legs. Stuffed Shrimp. Oh my!


About to at The Gumbo Shop. Our favorite French Quarter Restaurant!


Walking down Bourbon Street!


Soon after arriving in Dallas, it was time to celebrate! We're Red, White and Blue Ready!


Just before taking the boat out at sunset.


The most beautiful way to see fireworks is as they reflect onto the water below.


Take time today to be grateful for your freedoms.
