It’s Carnival Time {Weekend Musings, February 6-8}


We spent the first weekend of the carnival season walking back and forth to the numerous parades which passed by on Napoleon Avenue. It is so great to visit with our neighbors and friends along the route.


I also love sitting on the front porch sipping a cocktail and watching the parade-goers pass on their way to the parades.

The weather was absolutely gorgeous this weekend. I can only hope that the remaining days and nights of the Carnival season remain as beautiful.

Waking up to coffee tawk, a Bloody Mary or two, watching parades, and dining with good friends make for an awesome weekend.
