Family, Football, and How NOT to Burn Down Your House
November is always a fantastic month. Usually, the weather here in Louisiana is delightful, especially after enduring the long, hot, humid summer months.

I found him watching it over and over even when I wasn’t around. Generosity is important to me, and I like to share that message with him and with you, my clients. Every Thanksgiving, friends and family open their doors to me to share their food and blessings, and I do the same.
