    Born and raised in South Louisiana.

    Live in a town so small only people around this area knows where it is. So small we don't even have a post office or a police department, we use the town next to ours that's just a tab bit bigger. I love this area, love that good 'ole southern hospitality. I love being a...

    Oh Boy....

    I've lived here my whole life.  I guess it's ok..  I've just always had the desire to live in a big city. Apart from the small city aspect, I love everything else about Louisiana.  I don't think I'd be able to handle not having the awesome food.  I like...

    Home Sweet Home

    I can't really compare Louisiana to anywhere else since I have never lived more than 30 miles from where I grew up. Our waterways rule for recreational boating, particularly on the Amite River Diversion Canal. Take a tour on an airboat. Watch out for the alligators and...

    Lived Here All My Life

    Ive lived in Louisiana my entire life. I love it and hate it at the same time. Hate the humidity and the extremely hot summers and the no snow winters. I love the culture and the food. Mardi gras is incredible and Halloween is even better in the French Quarter. You haven't lived...

    It's the Place For Friendly People

    I'm so proud to be from Louisiana.  Our culture is different from anywhere else in the US, and it spoils us so much!  I didn't even realize how special it was to live there until I moved away as an adult.  It was only when I was 23 and moved to Georgia that I found...
