A BIT ABOUT ME


My last name is pronounced "Lang-wa" in French, as many vowels of the language are silent.  I have no French in my heritage though, as my family hails from Mississippi and Alabama.  When I was 5, my Dad transferred to Baton Rouge with Bush Jewelry Co and I've considered myself a "native by choice" ever since!  Dad’s store was on 3rd St. downtown Baton Rouge and in the 50's and 60s, this was the bustling heart of the city and a magical childhood place for me.  As was the case in many cities during the 3 decades that followed though, downtown was left behind for urban sprawl, mall shopping, and a rush to suburbia.  Thankfully, the last 25 years have seen a tremendous renovating and resurgence for downtown Baton Rouge!  We just love all the activity offered downtown now, such as Sunday Concerts in the Park or “Live at 5:00” Friday night bands; Broadway productions at River Center; Mardi Gras parades; a meal at one of the many great restaurants; or a trip to the Farmers Market on Saturdays!  I have always had an avid interest in history, genealogy, gardening, and architecture, so I truly feel fortunate to live in an area with a rich and colorful past, strong family traditions, lush landscaping, and beautiful home designs unique to South Louisiana.  As a young child walking home from school, I always noticed the draping Lives Oaks and pretty architecture in our neighborhood of Hundred Oaks, and these now vintage homes are still my favorites!  Guess real estate was in my blood even then. When I was 9 we moved to the west side of the Mississippi to the quaint town of Port Allen, where people know their neighbors by name and children still walk to school.
