This bracelet was inspired from my visit to Nawlins, this past July. You can find it posted in my etsy shop!

“Laissez les bons temps rouler!”

The term “Laissez les bons temps rouler!” is a Cajun expression meaning “Let the good times roll!” And boy do they! We had a wonderful trip to New Orleans in July. My sister and I decided that we would do a roadtrip to The Big Easy. It had been a couple of years since I had been down there, and she needed to take her girls down to visit and stay with their memaw for a couple of weeks! And we would stay and visit with our dad who has a home down there. My other sister decided she would fly instead of driving for 16 hours in a van with 3 adults, (4 counting her) 2 children and a dog! And we can’t forget about our luggage and the girls toys also! Where is her spontaneity, I ask! She just laughed at that question. She missed the first sleepless night, cause the dog slept all the way down there, and decided to stay awake all night barking at every little noise she heard at the dog friendly hotel we stayed at the first night on our road travels. She missed having to stay in 1 hotel room with 3 adults (4 counting her) 2 children and a dog! She missed all the fun! Anyway we arrived in New Orleans on the second day, First Stop, Daiquiri Shop! This continued for 2 weeks! Second stop Dads! We enjoyed Cafe Du Monde beignets, for all of those who don’t know what they are…heaven with a little of powder sugar on top! We enjoyed Pat O’Brien Hurricanes, the scenery, the food, the city but most of all the company!
