Hi, welcome to Bon veiller, cher! You’re probably wondering what in the world that even means. Well, it’s Cajun French for “good visit,” and “cher” is our favorite term of endearment here in Southwest Louisiana. Veiller (pronounced vay-yay) means to spend time talking or to “shoot the breeze,” and before the time of televisions and iPhones, that is how people interacted. Whether they were sitting around the kitchen table, steaming coffee cups in hand, or enjoying the weather rocking on the porch, they were talking. And most always in their native tongue, Cajun French. This was their escape, something of their past they could still hold onto as the world around them rapidly changed. And though so much has changed since then, we are all still seeking that warmth and familiarity. That’s what we are searching for, and through this blog we would like to share our journey with you.
Hi, Lexi here, the daughter! I’m 25, married to my best friend, and just starting my career as a registered nurse. My current addictions are reading in my hammock chair, Crossfit, and, as always, my three year old pit bull, Georgia. After spending over twenty years in Texas, I am loving getting back to my roots here in Louisiana. Few can say their favorite vacation spot is in their backyard!
