Happy Mardi Gras!


Originally uploaded by griffey.

Mardi Gras is a really special time for Betsy and I. During our undergrad days, we made a yearly pilgrimage with some of our best friends down to the Big Easy for Mardi Gras, watching the parades and generally acting silly. Years later, it was where and when we decided to get married, eloping to New Orleans and getting married in the New Orleans Parish courthouse on Lundi Gras of 2001.

It’s a great holiday, and to everyone: Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!

Hey, happy anniversary! You weren’t on IM today so I couldn’t tell you in real time, but hope you had a terrific day.

We had a celebration at work today: three king cakes, and I didn’t get the baby in any of them. 🙁

Happy anniversary, guys! Even though you’ve got about a month, I think… I saw video from NOLA yesterday and almost cried. Ho hum!

I love New Orleans! My favorite was waking up early and having coffee and doughnuts by the river.

…..the smell of the French Quarter in the morning, unfortunately that is something I will never forget as well.
