Fat Tuesday was marked with the departure of my former roommate and dear friend, Jennie. About fifty people turned out to eat some King Cake, wear beads and say good-bye. We called it Jennie Gras 2008 and despite knowing it was our last night with Jennie before she headed off for DC, it was a fun-filled night.
Jennie was the last roommate I had before I got my permanent one- Tim. She and I lived together for a year and she was an awesome housemate. She actually knew my husband before I did and witnessed the start of our friendship, the beginning of our romance and ultimately our marriage.
I’m glad I got the honor of sending her off with a bang Mardi Gras-style. You will be missed Jennie!!
