Last week was fun and somewhat unbelievable. I was on Lifetime TV’s show Designing Spaces, Kids Spaces highlighting some of the family friendly attractions in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We filmed this episode last December and it was a fabulous experience. I’ve always wanted to be a travel show host and it really was so much fun to film.
I was absolutely thrilled when Visit Baton Rouge approached me to represent the capital city of Baton Rouge on National US television. When I travel, I always love sharing my passion about Louisiana and my home city area of Baton Rouge. Louisiana is a wonderful state to be from and everywhere I go someone always asks me about the food, the culture, the music, and the Louisiana lifestyle.
We began our day early, filming at the Rural Life Museum, which gives a glimpse of what life was like in Louisiana before electricity. I brought along my daughter and a few of her school friends so they could get a behind-the-scenes look into television production. The girls had so much fun touring the museums, the USS Kidd, running around the Capital Grounds, and sampling the offerings from the food trucks. For the production crew, they were able to get a first-hand look at how much Baton Rouge has to offer, even for teenagers.
Here’s the full clip from Lifetime TV which aired March 7, 2013 and highlights just a few of the many activities and attractions in the entire Baton Rouge metropolitan area that’s just right for families. For more travel information and planning, visit the official website of Visit Baton Rouge.
Super big thanks to everyone at Visit Baton Rouge for thinking of me and including me on such a fun project. This was the perfect mix for me, bringing my passion for travel and love of my home area together in such a fun package. I still can’t believe I get to take part in unbelievable moments like this. Remember, if you can dream it, you can do it.
Now, to figure out how to make this a regular gig…
