I went to the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans over the weekend & had a blast. I don’t even know where to begin. The food was fantastic, the lineup for all of the shows was on point, and I probably lost about 5 pounds from all of the walking that I did. It was beautiful to see the range of style walking through the streets. From maxi dresses and skirts to distressed Jean shorts with cropped tops. The downside to my trip is that long time friendships have been compromised and it may be to a point of no return. I think sometimes you grow up & grow apart and that was apparent to me over the weekend. Any who……despite the arguments and disagreements amongst friends, New Orleans was a great experience and I plan to go again next year. I did want to share with yall a few pictures I took on the trip…………enjoy………..
