July is the month that America celebrates its birthday – Independence Day. Let's face it — most American born citizens take being American for granted. We've never known what it is like to live in other countries, or what struggles other people face there. We don't really know how good we have it.

There was the woman who came to Abraham’s Tent in a wedding dress. She and her new husband had been going there when they ran out of money, ran out of food, and the Tent became their community.

For artist Candice Alexander, 2013 is shaping up to be a very good year. She is at least somewhat settled in her new studio in the historic Charleston Hotel in downtown Lake Charles, and she is staying busier than she probably ever envisioned.

The joke is often made that you need a passport to visit Louisiana. Take into account all the unique cultures, food offerings, landscapes and historic sites the state has to offer and the joke slowly unfolds into a reality. Highways, byways and even flyways transverse this beautiful state, making it the ultimate destination to get away to a new place each weekend this summer.

On a pleasant spring day with a nice breeze blowing and the sun shining high, life has slowed to a nice pace for the middle of the week and work day. Allen and Pamela Seal, owners of Lloyd’s Country Store on Phillips Road in Westlake, swing slowly on a wooden porch while their son-in-law Scott Mitchell sits nearby in a wooden rocker.The trio is partaking in what Pamela likes to call "front-porch sittin’.”

If you are looking for a relaxing weekend getaway, or even just a fun day trip, Kemah, Texas, should be at the top of your list. I traveled there with two friends for a girls’ weekend and we had an amazing time. It’s a trip we plan to repeat this year.

Thirteen years ago, in Jeff Davis Parish, crawfish farming accounted for two to three percent of a rice farmer’s income, by 2010, that number had increased to 23 percent and totaled over 12.5 million pounds of production.

What started out as a way for a few farmers to supplement their rice crop has become an important secondary crop for many.

Imagine a simpler time; a slower pace; a more connected way of life. Friends both young and old walk along a shaded lane toward the river. Courting couples take long, romantic buggy rides around the lake. Fishermen cast their lines in the slow-moving river. Families enjoy a Sunday afternoon picnic in the shade along the water.
