Since moving north, I have missed Mardi Gras and everything that goes with it. But, over the past 8 years, it hasn't been a painful missing. Now that I have found so many old friends on Facebook that are posting pictures of parades and talking of King Cake, it is KILLING ME!!
I want king cake! I want cheap beads, I want to hold my kids on my shoulders as they yell "throw me something Mister!". I want to be at the parades so bad. I even want to kiss the old men that give you paper flowers!
It will be ok, I am going to dream of green, purple and gold tonight.
