Can I first say..THANK YOU to my friends and my family who reached out to me yesterday..the emails, the phone calls, and to all my blogger friends...you have no idea how much it means to me..all of your comments, the stories you shared...it truly means a lot...and helped me through a tough day...so..THANK YOU!!! I blogged and totally forgot to post it!

Now on to one of my favorite places in Las Vegas! I was born here...I know... my family came from all over the world...and me...VEGAS...but I LOVE it here and there are so many beautiful places...that are FAR AWAY from the "strip".....so I wanted to venture off and share a piece of Vegas with all of you who may have never been here...or just didn't have the time...

 
We are on the road to RED ROCK in this picture...I live very close to this location and that was one of my pre-requisites for a house...I wanted to face the mountains...that and a big fat game room, a room for all of my crafts and mild case of "hoarders" and an awesome guest bedroom for all of my family and friends who come visit. Our balcony to our master faces these mountains...and it's perfect...

We seriously have one of the best sunsets here...we will have some pics of the sunset when we visit Boulder City soon...but here you can see the mountains in the background...and well the horseback riding... rock climbing (which is known to be the best in the world as far as trails go), the star gazing..and the random donkey sightings...

Horseback Riding

The mountains make me feel safe...and this my friends is one of my favorite places to go with the hubby...we take our boo boo's (sophie and sampson) our two labs and we go on walks and talk..it's free and ..it isn't a lot but it's special...and we cherish it almost every Sunday...ok I lie..it has been a couple of Sunday's since we have been sooo busy...but we shall resume this weekend....I can't lie...I think the husband reads my blog sometimes...haha

  1. The background is almost as stunning as the lady! I love the pop of color with the scarf! Ingenious!
    I read your last post and couldn't agree more. It doesn't matter how old you are, losing someone you love hurts. You are so lovely I can only imagine your mom was a classy, compassionate lady. Like mother like daughter.

  2. Oh, you always have the best shoes! I'm sorry about your rough day (and the reason behind it). I love that you're carrying your mom's purse!

  3. First I want to say that I love your blog and think that you're a really classy lady. Second, I totally understand how hard it is to lose someone that means so much to you. I hope and pray that your days get easier when it comes to your mother.
