Whew, I made it through another one. I must really be getting old because I don’t have the carnival season stamina that I used to have.
Maybe I was just too tired with school, work, decorating purses and coconuts and everything else.
I had a fabulous season though and my ride this year was EPIC!
I thought we had a large crowd last year (and we did), but this year it was HUUUGGEE! I had the most fun ever!
Most people who ride in carnival krewes say that once you ride on a float, you never want to get back on the ground. I never felt that way. I love being on the ground as much as being up on the float. I love to flex my “bead-catching muscles” and see how many throws I can get my hands on. This year was the first time that I actually loved being on the float, more than I loved being on the ground.
Everything about that day was fabulous…from the pre-party to the end of the ride. The weather was gorgeous! I think it was about 65 degrees when we hit the street. And the crowd was out in full force.
I really am proud that the krewe is doing so well.
Looking forward to many more years of riding with such a great group of women.
February 7,2018… we get to do it again!
