Here is the post for Even Day Eleven of the September Sapphire Even Day Blog Challenge! BTW, there is a second giveaway coming up for the challenge. Stay tuned…
My beloved state of Louisiana, Sportsman’s Paradise, is well-known for many faves. The 3 things that I love about it are:
1. The food (duh!)
Only in Louisiana, do we talk about other foods we ate or cooked while we are eating. Beignets, gumbo, turducken, andouille sausage, King Cake, crawfish, étouffée, jambalaya, Muffulettas, poboys, etc. Not to mention, the seasonings and spices that originated here to create those dishes. Don’t get me started on “making groceries”.
2. Warm weather most of the year
Most Christmases, we can wear shorts. Or the popular shorts-with-a-jacket ensemble. Don’t get me wrong, the weather can be waaayyyy too warm many times AKA hot as hell. And the humidity is often 100%+. And there was the Polar Vortex episode that we called SNEAUX. But most of the time, we are in short sleeves and open toed shoes.
3. There is no other place on Earth like it
We celebrate life and death with parades and second lines. We love to wear costumes for Halloween, Mardi Gras (school is out for two days to a week), and everything in between.
And yes, that is The Deuce with Flat Stanley standing in front of the swamp behind our subdivision. I can’t make this stuff up!
Name 3 things you love about the state you live in.
