A Couple That Plays Together Stays Together

November 16, 2016

My fiancé, Juan, and I have been together for five long years.  We were set up as mixed doubles partners in a local tournament in Baton Rouge and our relationship blossomed from there.  We were part of a huge tennis community, where we would play everyday, and end the day drinking beers and eating burgers with all of our friends.  We were living the life.  Then, the real world hit us like a ton of bricks.  We got pregnant, and our world was turned upside down. 

We have a beautiful daughter, whom we both adore, but raising a child is stressful, and we didn’t have the time to play tennis as much.  We both still played, but one played while the other stayed home to watch the baby.  Soon, we were drifting apart; living separate lives, but under one roof.  Then, I got a job offer in Houston. Two weeks later I moved with the baby, leaving Juan behind for a couple of months before he could join us.

Why I Love Crawfish Boils

June 13, 2016

Growing up in Louisiana, you get used to a spring culinary staple, crawfish.  Eating crawfish in Louisiana is equivalent to lobster in Maine, or cheese steak in Philadelphia.  The great thing about eating crawfish is that it is typically a social activity.  You do not see many people picking up crawfish to go, and eating it in front of the television.  A crawfish boil brings people together, whether it is to celebrate a special event, or a casual Sunday afternoon.  My favorite thing about attending crawfish boils is the family and friend bonding.  The last boil I attended lasted over 5 hours, where we ate, drank, our children played, and we enjoyed the great outdoors and each others company.  Crawfish boils are more than just a great meal; they are a reason to bring your family and friends together, and to take time out of our busy schedules to just enjoy each other.
