It's been a busy year!

Here are some photos from travels I was lucky enough to take over the past year.

I finally made it to one of my 'bucket list' places... New Orleans! It was just as magical, moody and soulful as I had imagined. I arrived during the tail end of Mardi Gras, which was full of erupting, contagious energy, beautiful costumes, dance parties in the street and AMAZING food and music! It is hard for me to even put into words. I stayed past the end, into the peaceful lull that follows. It was nice to experience both... though my introverted self kind of prefers the latter.

Jackson, Wyoming and the surrounding area is probably one of the most strikingly beautiful places I have ever been.
