There's so much to do, see, eat and drink in New Orleans, but Mardi Gras World is totally worth your time.
Here's a #flashbackfriday pic from my family's 2015 to New Orleans. This colorful guy is just a sample of the greatness at this site, which gives you a fascinating behind the scenes look at some of the traditions of this iconic city's biggest party.
You think it’s cute to parade me around and say “look at my wiener”? It’s not... put me down. 🌭

My Jagganath- he's VERY dear to my heart because as a child I received a beautiful Jagannath doll to love.
I slept with Him every night of my life cuddled against my heart and shared Him with my babies once they came along.. Still I kiss Jagannath at night before I sleep and feel comforted with his soft cuddly form snuggling against my heart, and in the morning I greet Him again with love and a extra tight squish.
Aside from all the other wonderful gifts my parents bestowed upon me, like a connection to the lotus feet of my gurudev, Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda, the Holy Names & introducing me to Krishna, a regulated upbringing, and oodles of love & care, & 5 rowdy siblings... wow just Trying to list even a bit of what I am so blessed with makes me feel humbled & grateful this morning!!
😙🤗 thank you dear parents, how can I ever repay this matchless gift?!
But to share with you; I'm so eternally delighted to have this Jagannath to love.
The first forms of Krsna you give your child will have a deep and lasting impact.
For some its a cuddly krsna or a small deity doll to worship.
For my daughter its her krishna balaram deities & little cuddly cow "cowie" & my Jagannath.. Do give the gift of Krsna.
Its very nice when you are scared as a child or adult to hug Krsna & sing to him a prayer of love & protection when you're down or in trouble.
I used to wake from nightmares and hum or whisper sing from my pillow
O lord of the universe
Kindly be merciful
Thinking of the vastness of the universe maintained created & annihilated under the direction of the Supreme, Sri Bhagavan.
So I am eternally indebted for this early connection to dear sweet Krishna, which by the mercy of my spiritual master & Krsna, has only grown.
I urge you to find ways to give your little souls Krishna!!
Start them young and give age appropriate Krsna at the different stages of their life!
Love Krishna & be happy 😃😄
