Las Vegas was my husband and mine's first major trip together. I'd gone to New York the December prior, and begged for him to take me somewhere first. I'd never flown, my mom hadn't either, we were deer in headlights. Luckily, we made it through everything easy peasy, and did just fine sans airport experience. So when we finally got the chance to take a big trip together, I was ecstatic!
Vegas is another place I didn't expect to like to much. I'm not really a gambler, I work to hard for my money, and I'm honestly not much of a drinker, other than the occasional social drink. But wow! Las Vegas, Nevada is about so much more than that! There's the glitz and the glam, the shows, the history, the stunning nature surrounding the city, and even right smack in it, the family friendly air (yes! family friendly! If we had children, we'd load 'em up to go to Vegas), the architecture, even culture--so much more beyond booze and casinos! While we were there I said on several occasions that I'd felt like I'd traveled all over the world in one day! The casinos are each truly a work of art, and submerse you into new worlds. Soon I'll share more in detail of our experiences "abroad" in Vegas. For now, I hope you'll enjoy a few highlights.

We packed so much into this 1st Anniversary trip, and we're hoping to make it back there soon. Would you believe I can still smell it? Yes, Vegas is covered in Jasmine, and it is so incredibly fragrant and lovely! We visited in mid to late April, and the weather was perfect, just warm enough! What are your must see spots in Vegas? I'd love to hear your suggestions for our next visit there.
Seattle, Washington wasn't exactly on my wish list of places to go. It sort of fell into my lap when my husband was sent there for a 45 day long training course. As luck (or hard work) would have it, our finances were right and savings plenty so I was able to visit not once but twice. And boy was it a treat! Spring in Seattle was beautiful!

I'm really so excited to share more in depth about Seattle with you. It was such a happy surprise to have like it so well! There is really an abundance of activities for anyone, young or old, children or no children. With it being a major port for cruise ships, all the deets are bound to help some of you out there! Hello, Alaska? Someday I'll be back to Seattle to sail away on an Alaskan adventure! Until then, see you back soon for more highlight reels.
