Mardigraslady.com was first born in 2004. In 2007 I began writing for AL.com with my byline beneath the Masked Observer. In 2012 we parted ways and since then I have just been enjoying Carnival. Beginning with the 2020 Carnival season, I am back! I'm a native Mobilian and have been involved in Mobile Mardi Gras since the day I was born. Mardi Gras is my passion. I love the city of Mobile and the people in it. I am a member of three parading organizations. Each season, I attend about 25 balls. I have been parading in Mardi Gras since I was two weeks old, and I never plan to quit. If you see me at a ball you are attending, stop and say hello. Who knows, you may end up on my blog.
