Life & Lagniappe

I am betting you know what life is, after all, you are living it right now.  But what is “lagniappe” and how on earth do you say it? First, let’s talk about how to say it, it’s pronounced lan?yap. Crazy, right? Well, it’s a Louisiana word and we have a lot of words that are pronounced nothing at all how they look. Try to marry together French, Spanish, Native American and English and you get Louisiana.

So what does it mean? Literally, a little something extra. And that is just what you will find on this page, life and a little something extra…lagniappe.
