Going through last year's beads and found this gem. I will be celebrating Mardi Gras even though I can't go this year. Woe is me, I'm going to Hawaii instead.
My connection to Nawlins runs deeper than just a love for bright shiny things and drinking booze. I'm blessed to have an amazing sister that lives there...I get the inside scoop on everything NOLA. She's an artist so I get to see the underbelly and in my opinion the best of the best of the Crescent city. Ok, so my visits consist of a little culture, a lot of laughing, drinking, bright beads, and boas. My highlight was going out sans-pants and partying til dawn. Only in New Orleans.
