Those of you who don’t know, we have moved out of our apartment by the university about two weeks ago. We were going to move into our new apartment, but unforeseen circumstances have sent us living in a loft apartment in the French Quarter.

We have found many things we love and many things we don’t love as much about the Quarter.

We love that there is music somewhere at any given time, and you can just stumble upon it when you go grocery shopping. We love beignets. We love the Croissant Cafe. We have been enjoying taking gigantic walks around town. We love that there are horses on the street.

The French Quarter (or specifically the part where we live) could be an island, I have been talking about visiting. Do you remember that conversation? You know when I said I want to live away from any phones, computers, internet? I take it back.

We struggle with parking and are starting to get used to the strange noises at all hours of the night. After all this is a living, moving, breathing city. That never really sleeps.
