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 :)
