Venetian Carnival


It's the 18th annual Venetian Carnival in Annecy this weekend. Thought I'd throw up some pics before we dash to out St. Patty's Day party. Enjoy!

  2. I love those costumes! They're so beautiful and mysterious. You're so lucky you have a little bit of Venice in the mountains.

    Lovely photo of you and Adam!

    1. Shawna, he actually wasn't, thankfully! In the photo of the woman in bright green, the one with her hand sticking out, the woman is actually waving at Adam in his stroller. Looks like she's trying to hypnotise him!

  6. That looks like so much fun - I love the costumes! Can't believe how much Adam has changed and grown in such a short time - he obviously adores his Mama.

    1. Hollie, you would love it. It's every March and people have told me it's the most popular such festival after the one in Venice!

  8. Such a feast for the eyes! Thank you for this! I attended a museum exhibition about world carnivals once, and was so surprised to learn that Venetian carnival was forbidden for hundreds of years, and reappeared only in 1980s... for some reason, I though it was an uninterrupted centuries long tradition.

    You and your son are such a happy bunch - always fun to see you and him on pictures! He is adorable!

  11. Thank you! Another sight I'd never get to see otherwise! Intimidating, and more than a little menacing ... but so gorgeous. Dan's been to Venice, but not me. Someday. Was Adam fascinated with these mysterious couples? He's clearly loves his maman! Darling, the two of you.
