Oh Christmas Tree

Christmas Tree from The Garden Gates on Metairie Road, New Orleans.  

Today was the perfect day to get in the Christmas spirit, decorate, and start planning the holiday season.  It all started with brunch in Satsuma on Maple Street enjoying a sweet potato pancake, and then a short ride over to The Garden Gates on Metairie Road.
