I was responsible for making everyone look like “walkers”. It was so much fun! Everyone really got into character immediately after seeing their faces. It really warmed my heart to see how much everyone enjoyed their faces.
In spite of the cold weather, we partied as usual. Our float is equipped with a DJ, a restroom, and a buffet of Maw Maw’s red beans and rice, hot dogs, fried chicken, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and sweets like traditional calas. The family provides sodas, water, and beer, but you’re always welcome to BYOB. When you’re on a float for an entire day everything we have is essential.
While I enjoyed my time in New Orleans, I’m glad to get back home to a sense of normalcy. I just need a few more vacation days to get me back on the right track! New’Awlins will do that to you! I love my city!
