Just Tuesday

Well, my boys are at school, and it's a regular Tuesday here in NY just like most of the country.  But down in New Orleans, today is Mardi Gras!  I get a little sad this time every year wishing I could be there, but this year especially.  Maybe it was looking at the photos of my friends online.  Many of them have children now, of course, and it makes me long to share this unique holiday and its wonderful traditions with my own kids.  Or perhaps it is knowing that our upcoming move will most likely be overseas again, and my chances of making it to Louisiana for Mardi Gras in the next few years (I always hope) are slim to none.  My husband and I "quizzed" the kids on some NOLA terminology the other day, and there is a lot they don't know.  They do very well on food...they know po boys, snowballs, and red beans on Monday.  Can you tell food is a high priority in my family?   :)

Anyway, here's a photo of Sophie sporting her purple, green, and gold for Mardi Gras.  New Orleans most definitely has a lot of problems, BUT all of the good things in the "most unique city in America" will always outweigh the bad in my opinion :)  So, Happy Mardi Gras....Laissez les bons temps rouler!

I love this photo! We had a great time at Mardi Gras this year! I wish we could go every year too but it just doesn't work out that way! The good of New Orleans will always out weigh the bad in my opinion as well! Happy belated Mardi Gras to you guys!
