In March of 2014 my daughter and I had the pleasure of spending Mardi Gras in New Orleans. We are lucky to have a dear friend who lives there and has an insider's knowledge of this richly diverse city. Here are some of my favorite photos from that visit. If you have a chance to visit Mardi Gras once this pandemic has resolved, I recommend it!

I took many more photos that I'm sharing here, but back them I didn't realize that resizing my photos for posting on social media was a bad idea. I used to resize a lot of my photos without saving the originals. (If you are doing this, stop now! Always save your originals and make a copy of them for editing.) Luckily I saved some of my favorites in their original size. Note, the first photo is the design on a Sucré King Cake box.
