CRYSTAL SHOP + FRIENDS

Our last day in Louisianna, we went back into the french quarter on the hunt for a crystal shop.  We had been looking for one the whole time we were there and finally found out that we were right around the corner from one the first day we were down there.  We were so happy we found it last minute.  It was the best crystal shop Ive ever been in.  So many amazing beautiful stones.  I had to be very decisive and only get ones that really spoke to me for specific things.  Im very happy with the ones I came home with. 

We didn't go into the fortune teller shops, but I loved the old signs.  I could walk for days around there just taking photos of old walls and signs.  There are so many nooks and crannies full of textures from age, decay and the amazingly eclectic culture.  Everything down there is eye candy for the artists eye.

On our way home we met up with my dear friend Katelyn from Gypsy Moth Sol and her two beautiful babies.  It was so nice to see her even if it was just for lunch.  She picked an amazing greek restaurant to eat at.  It just so happened to be Leena's birthday, so I felt super lucky to get to see her that day.  She was all dressed up in costume she got from her party the day before.  And she was in a super sweet mood.  Melted my heart.  It was awesome for my family to get to meet her in person b/c I talk about her alot!  It's kind of funny b/c Ive seen my friend from another state more often this year than Ive seen most of my local friends!  It was the perfect way to end the vacation!
