I must admit...I do my fair share of complaining about the state we live in. Why are we at the top of the obesity and cancer rate lists and the bottom of the education lists? Known for our crooked politicians and wild parties (and let's not forget...Hurricane Katrina) sometimes i can convince myself we have it bad down here in Louisiana. But lately I have been noticing the beauty of this state. I'm finding if you look, you can find as much beauty as you can destruction. And although I do crave a good getaway from time to time, nothing can compare to home. And as long as my family is here, I will continue to love Louisiana!
