For the next few days, I am spending time in my all-time favorite city, New Orleans! I am here sans husband and kid to attend the iConnect iRetreat blogger conference, and I am having a great time. This morning, I walked through the French Quarter to eat at my favorite bakery and coffee shop, Croissant d'Or, a truly old school New Orleans spot. Then, I spent the day learning from some pretty amazing bloggers. These conferences are so good for my spirit. Spending time with other writers who are passionate and insightful really fuels my get-up-and-go attitude.
I think New Orleans as a city is such a special place - the food, the music, the people are so unique and colorful. Here is my list of some wonderfully NOLA books that will transport you to the Big Easy even when red beans and rice and jazz music seem miles away.
