    Home Sweet Home

    Lived Here All My Life

    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...

    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...
