Love & Travel

Mike and I are returning to our beloved New Orleans at the end of this month. We got married 2 years ago at the Royal Sonesta and were able to share our love of this city with our nearest and dearest. Whether we were riding a mule through the quarter, dining at Stanley in Jackson Square or traveling through the swamps to play with gators, the rich history and fantastic food of New Orleans put a spell on us all. This year we are going to extend our trip east, down Highway 90 into Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. The first stop will be at Darwell’s in Long Beach, Mississippi, for the world’s best crawfish etouffee. Then on to the IP Casino where Mike is determined to win his money back from the blackjack tables. From there, we’re just going to go where the Gulf breezes blow us. I haven’t visited this part of the country much and am greatly looking forward to this new adventure.

This month’s issue is all about travel. Doug Matus will introduce you to West Texas’ hidden gem Marfa while David Stovall will walk you through his trip to Cuba. Whether you are planning your dream vacation or just enjoying a staycation on the West Side, always remember that travel and love go hand in hand. That is why the best trips, like your true love, never really end.

Happy Travels,

Christie & Mike
