Vegas Never Fails Me

Any time I head for a weekend in Las Vegas I am excited the whole way there.  While I may hide it well, I just can't wait to walk into the hotels and play on the slot machines and breathe it all in.  It is seriously such a great place to just escape for a weekend.  Not everyone has love for Vegas, but I definitely do.

This particular weekend (two weeks ago) we headed to Las Vegas to hang out with some of our very best friends, Ashley and Kyle; who came into town just for this trip.  It was so fantastic.  We played and drank and ate and laughed.  I wish I had money to do that every weekend.  We had a blast, I learned to play roulette, Bill and I split a foot-long hot dog (you guys know about my hot dog love), and we had amazing quality time.

These two are such a natural fit for us.  There is something about hanging out with them that is such a blessing to all of us, and you can feel it in the air.  We love being around each other.  Bill and I were in Ashley and Kyle's wedding a few years back, and it was such an honor to be a part of their special day.  They are such a wonderful couple, and we know they will be a couple we travel with for the rest of our lives.  They are fun and funny, but can also shed light on serious situations and have a lot of wisdom to offer.  I love transitional friends, that can be what you need when you need it.

I thank God for bringing Ashley into my life every day, because without her I would have never stayed in California and without that I would not have met Bill.  She is also has such a huge heart and is learning to be open about it.  She started her own blog recently, and I am so proud of her.  Check it out here! I thank God individually for Kyle and the friendship he and Bill share.  I know Bill values him so much and he is one of the best friends he will ever have.

They are a huge part of our story, and we love them dearly.  
What a wonderful weekend with great friends.  

We miss you Kyle and Ashley.  Looking forward to the next trip :)
