Hi y’all! Welcome to Bon veiller, cher and our very first post! We are Katrina and Lexi, a mother-daughter team living in small-town Southwest Louisiana. We have always had a very special bond and shared a great love for our home state, and now that we are both adults, we find ourselves yearning for more knowledge about the places and people around us. Plus, we both spent twenty years living in another state, and this only further fueled our passion for Louisiana. When the idea of a blog first came about, we knew we wanted to focus not only on the state as it is now but on the rich history and the people that have shaped it. From festivals and foods to traditions and trades, we will be sitting down to visit with locals from all around to delve deeper into what makes the culture here so unique. So many people look to other places for fun and adventure, but we want to show you that no matter where you live, you can find these things just steps outside your front door.
We already have quite a list of adventures planned, but we would love to hear y’alls ideas. Do you have a favorite hole-in-the-wall breakfast spot? Has your great nephew’s wife’s sister played the accordion since she was three? What’s the treasure in your town?Leave a comment here or send us an e-mail, so we can plan a visit to your neck of the woods!
