For years, Halloween didn’t go much beyond the pursuit of candy. A pillowcase with holes for your arms, a mask over your face, a big brown paper sack to carry treats – what else did a kid need? As Halloween evolved in American culture, it brought a fascination with all things spooky; demons, goblins, vampires, and zombies. What is it about ghostly, ghastly, and gruesome things that continue to captivate our imaginations?

First comes love, then comes . . . planning? Before a couple celebrates their wedding day, a tremendous amount of planning often takes place. Some brides have a mother and several attendants to help her. Others hire a professional wedding planner. Still other couples tackle the to-do list on their own. In any pre-wedding scenario, aside from spur of the moment elopement, there are details to attend to! The wedding venue, the reception, the dress, invitations, caterers, cake . . . the list seems to be unending. But the big day eventually arrives, and most couples look back and say they wouldn’t change a thing. If you’re currently planning your wedding, embrace the process as an exciting part of the journey, rather than merely a means to an end. To help you in your planning, we’ve put together this bride guide that we hope will give you tips, guidance, and maybe a few new ideas.

Since Southwest Louisiana has warm weather about eight months out of the year, backyard pools are a favorite addition to many family homes. The kids, and the neighborhood kids, love it, the parents like having the kids at home where they can keep an eye on things, and once the initial investment is paid, it's a great way to entertain without spending a lot of money.

School's out next month, meaning vacation expectations will rise along with the temperatures. For many, the destination will be Walt Disney World — the most-visited entertainment resort on the planet. Southwest Louisiana's proximity to Florida means many of us are repeat, or even regular, visitors.
