In the South, we find any reason to have a parade, and when Louisiana has parades, we mean business! I promised to show you more pictures of people (my design details have taken over my camera), so lets start with my family: My son Cade will turn 15 this year…yikes! I feel like I just left high school myself! Yep, it’s just him. You could image the constant inquiries of “When are y’all having more?” My standard reply is: “He can brush his own teeth and pack his own lunch.” I’m the smart one here. I usually get the deer in headlights look, like “Why didn’t I think of that!?”
The other question: “What sports does he play?” None! I know because I made him try every single one. He was drawing inventions at 5…he’s a really smart cookie! Me on the other hand, I was trying to smoke boys at arm wrestling and football at his age. (Let’s just say I have a competitive gene.)
This is my husband Bryan. He owns an A/V company, that’s slang in the industry for Audio/Video/Home Automation/Home Theater. There is quite a bit of crossover in our business, and I’ll tell you more about the automated window treatments & theaters we’ve done later.
Seriously, the best float I’ve ever seen!
Life is too short. Find a costume, or create one.
I was on a mission to capture the spirit of people serious about St. Patrick’s Day. Mission Accomplished.

If you’re not from the South, you may be interested to know of a weird occurrence that happens at parades. Do you see all these beads on the ground? For some reason, there is a thrill of the catch. If you don’t catch a bead and it lands on the ground, well, I guess it’s no good. As the years go on, the bar is set higher for bigger and better beads! A few years ago, no one would have ever left large beads on the ground, only the tiny ones.
I hope you remembered to wear green!
