Hello From Mardi Gras In New Orleans!

I am down in New Orleans (NOLA for short) celebrating the end of the carnival season, or Mardi Gras, with my extended family. We’ve gone to quite a few parades, done our fair share of indulging in adult beverages (for those of us over 21; we keep it legal, kids), and filled trunks of our road-tired cars with beads and throws.
