My Thoughts in the Wake of the Orlando Mass Shooting


Desert Dreams

I rocked my Desio lenses last night for the first time in the color "Desert Dream".

Another Fun Birthday in Vegas!

Although we just came back from being in Las Vegas this past December, I wanted to return for my birthday.  This time we stayed at the Rio just off The Strip.  We've stayed there before so we knew it would be nice.  We always have fun playing table games and poker there.

On the night of my birthday we went to see Zarkana at the Aria and it did not disappoint.  It's a Cirque du Soleil show so if you've seen one, you KNOW it's going to be something great.  Just prior to the show we got a chance to hit The Buffet at Aria.  I think that had to be one of the best buffets we've had in a long time.

The next day we did a Scoot City Tour to Red Rock Canyon.  It was SO MUCH FUN!  So if you are ever in Vegas make sure to build a day in for this.

Our Christmas Vacation in the 4 Corners

We are back from our latest adventures!  4,031 miles flown and 1,273 miles driven.  Here was our route, itinerary, and a mix of pics and videos we shot...

It's My Day Off??

Looks like my video and audio aren't synced...sorry!  ;)
So, have YOU ever showed up on your day off?  If so, tell me about it.

22 Years

We just celebrated 22 years of marriage.  That's a long time to share a life with someone.  Some relationships don't make it nearly half that length of time.

We have had more than our fair share of challenges but somehow...WAIT, by the grace of God...the Universe...fate...the Force...the Source...whatever your belief system is, we overcame and made it to this point.  It has taken a lot of love, tolerance, forgiveness, and patience on both our parts but thankfully it has all gone in our favor.  We have collaborated, drifted apart, and rejoined countless times but our common goal has always seemed to be to love each other as unconditionally as possible and to withstand TOGETHERNESS!

I have learned so much on this journey called marriage and I'm looking forward to the journey that lies ahead.
