Our last Monroe Symphony concert was a lot of fun and since it was right before Mardi Gras, I was able to enjoy some king cake and crawfish etouffee. Delicious! It was also nice to have a little downtime to enjoy a walk through the beautiful Black Bayou Wildlife refuge and catch up on some reading. I'll be back in a few weeks for our Simply Sinatra pops concert.

This week and next week I'm in the Dallas area performing with Camerata Winds and will make a quick trip up to Paris, Texas to run the half marathon there. Paris has its own Eiffel Tower with a cowboy hat on top of it so what's not to love about that?
