Twelfth night is today, the Epiphany which signals the end of the Christmas season and the beginning of the Mardi Gras season. I live in Louisiana so Mardi Gras is a big deal here. The season runs from 12th night until the day before Ash Wednesday, Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday!" The Mardi Gras season is filled with Balls, parades, lots of food and drink, it's the splurge before the fasting of the Lenten Season.
Last year, Mardi Gras for me was stressful, finding ball dresses and cocktail dresses is not fun when you are huge. This year, I'm halfway to my goal. I'm not concerned about gaining weight this season and I am looking forward to wearing some beautiful ball gowns. Have I told you lately that I love my band?
Have a great day!
