On the Street

Within seconds of this video, a whirlwind of emotions flooded over me—and my eyes—as I reminisced about entertainers like Washboard Chaz that vividly dot the streets of New Orleans. Some of my fondest childhood memories revolve around my parents throwing us in the car and taking off to any town South of I-10 for an afternoon of riding, eating, laughing and living. These day trips will forever be in my blood, and were my first introduction to spontaneity and new sights.

As an adult I like when things will trigger and bring me back to a childhood memory. Enjoy! xo
