Every Phase of Lent You’ve Ever Felt

It all starts with Mardi Gras. . . also known as “Fat Tuesday.” If you’re anything like me, you deck out and go ham on all the prepackaged junk food. In other words, you eat a bunch of Hawaiian rolls in your car on the way home from the grocery store (based on a true story. I regret nothing). You then quickly realize that this means it is time to officially decide what you are committing to this Lent.
