The weather this weekend in Louisiana has been pretty intense.  Yesterday, the city of New Orleans had some serious flooding.  Many reports indicated that up to eight inches of rainfall fell in one sixty minute period alone.  That being said, less than 40 miles north, we spent the afternoon unaware of the severe storms just […]

Summer Barbecue Plans

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Blog

Most everyone that knows me, knows that I love barbecue.  Not just in the sense that I like to eat it, but all the small acts that come together over the ten plus hours it takes to cook brisket, pork shoulder, ribs, chicken, whatever.  I love every part – from cutting and splitting wood, to […]

Updated 6/26/2017 Josh and I took our second trip with the camper this weekend. We’re hooked. As big of fans as we are of tent camping, we’re not sure we’ll ever stay in a tent again! Okay, okay maybeee that’s dramatic, but our camper is that awesome. Upgrading from a tent to a 20-foot camper, […]

I headed off Friday morning to Homochitto National Forest.  I usually end up heading towards the Clear Spring Recreational area in Mississippi – just west of Bude and east of Meadville.  From there it’s easy to take any of the park service roads that run for miles in every direction. There are several hiking trails […]

Carnival Triumph Cruise

In January, Josh and I booked out a four-day cruise from an email offer that we couldn’t refuse.  How time passes so quickly, I’ll never know, but we went on that cruise this past weekend.  I’m truly grateful for the time we had together.  I mean really together.  How often do people get to turn […]
