Happy Mardi Gras!!

Mardi Gras is hands-down one of my favorite holidays.  Although I only lived in Louisiana for two years as a kid and spent the majority of my life in Tennessee, I consider Louisiana more "home" to me since I spent so much time with my family there growing up (all of my family originates from Louisiana) and had a wonderful college experience living in Baton Rouge and attending LSU.  I am proud of Louisiana and the rich culture the state has to offer. 

I just got back from a trip to New Orleans to celebrate Carnival and I had THE BEST TIME. Seriously, it was amazing. Mardi Gras always reminds me of how much I love the laid-back and fun-loving spirit of Louisiana and New Orleans. There is literally no place like it on earth.  I'll recap my Mardi Gras experience here soon, but until I get caught up with my other obligations, I wanted to tell all my readers


If you don't know anything about Mardi Gras, check out this little video for the basics. It captures the history. The spirit is a little more difficult to communicate through video.

I highly suggest to all of you out there that you sport a little Mardi Gras today! I'm definitely wearing some of my favorite beads from this weekend to class tonight.
