The Mardi Gras Girl Blog Is 10 Years Old!

I can hardly believe it, The Mardi Gras Girl Blog is actually 10 years old! It's been through changes of domain, times when I just ignored it, as well as being a resource of creativity and passion, inspiration and just plain fun. That's why the latest and greatest domain ends in .fun!

There's still a lot to share since the Mardi Gras celebration encompasses so much history and so many traditions. Amazing people who make up the krewes who run the parades, food that makes you wanna smack somebody it's so good, parade floats like nothing you've ever seen, and of course music, both New Orleans traditional as well as Mardi Gras, that moves you deep down in your soul. 

That and so much more are coming soon folks, so stay tuned! Please feel free to post comments on what you'd like to see covered here. Also share your Mardi Gras stories as well. 

Below is the link to one of my favorite posts, with Kermit Ruffins and the Rebirth Brass Band. Get in the flow and check out the song "All On A Mardi Gras Day".
