With the first half of the month focused on Mardi Gras and the second half on recovering from it, there isn’t much time for our everyday schedules. But, as my six-month-old reminds me at his nap time, maintaining the parts of your day that keep you sane – for me it’s making the bed every morning so that it feels more restful when it’s time to go to sleep – are even more important during times when our days are turned upside down.
With that in mind, look to our Valentine’s Day What’s Hot and our feature on local Valentine’s Day restaurant specials to check that off your list now, so you’re not scrambling for your present or reservation at the last minute – the day after Mardi Gras Day.
And while we’re thinking about love, look to our annual Couture Wedding Guide to learn more about some of our top local artisans who will create the wedding of your dreams (or renewal of vows, or birthday party, or any other event that makes your heart soar).
I have heard from some of you who are actually reading my note, and I want to say thank you. St. Charles Avenue magazine is quite close to my heart, and the more I learn about the people behind the nonprofits in this city, the more I see how impressive we are; for we as a city care about every person and facet of life here, as well as about keeping the parts of our lives that make this city what it is – tangible and intangible – safe and cared for.
So let’s keep caring for our city and its citizens – through Mardi Gras and beyond!
