Happy Carnival

So I have a confession. I’m a soca baby to my heart…but I’ve never been to Trinidad carnival. Cut me some slack! My parents migrated here when I was only 3 years old. Carnival usually falls somewhere between February-March and I had school! I spent every summer back home, and I’m eternally grateful for the moments I spent with my late grandmother. But, I have been deprived of a motherland carnival.

I’ll make it there one sweet day. I have an almost 4 year old and one on the way. Carnival definitely wasn’t in the cards for me for 2018.

Here’s a pic of my parents. Circa 1977-ish. Carnival costumes have definitely changed since then. More skin now, less costume. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to take a replica of this picture with my husband. I think that will make for a good framed keepsake.

Until next time, my friends. Wine and fling it up. 🇹🇹
