Steppin' Out Saturday

This Saturday, we stepped out for my cousin's backyard high school graduation party.
Our entire family gathered under the brightest moon of the year for a fais do-do to
celebrate another milestone.  We filled our bellies with boiled crawfish, watched the kids
play in the summer night air, talked politics and town gossip.  There's nothing that
means more to me than spending a Saturday night surrounded by my aunts and uncles
and cousins.  Our big, loud, good time loving Cajun clan is really something to behold.
My eyes are tired as I type this after a long night of laughing and dancing, staying up
way past my bedtime.  But my smile hasn't left my face all day, my heart so full after
a weekend full of love and family.

This dress was so cool and comfortable, the perfect choice for the Louisiana heat.  I wish 
I could be one of those mothers who can wear heels and simultaneously run around after 
my children.  I am not.  Period.  Flats may not be as fashionable but who cares when 
you're busy doing the two step for 2 hours straight?

You look great! I know I've only seen you in photos but have you lost weight? You look amazing (and you always do)!

In Cajun French, there is an expression: "Laissez les bon temps rouler!!!" which means "Let the good times roll!".  We pretty much live by that:)  And yes, you can join us anytime!!!  Come visit!!
