What Happens In Vegas Stays In Vegas…
We’ve all heard it before, the infamous quote of “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,” but for me that’s not the case. I want to bring back everything that happened in Las Vegas to Walker County, Alabama. I know for certain I’ve brought back a new perspective, because just driving through Jasper feels different. It feels bigger. It was amazing to me how there are two sides to Vegas. The Strip, the part that everyone sees on television, that Hollywood focuses on, and then a beautiful scenery, a home. Don’t get me wrong, both of these “faces” of Vegas are amazing.
I feel fueled up. I find myself feeling this way after every big trip. That’s why I feel that I’m suppose to travel. Because it does something to me. I don’t know if it’s because I didn’t grow up seeing much more than a small teensy bit of the south or if it’s in my DNA that God placed inside a me a spirit to move. I’ve said before I’ve moved several times within in my life, but for my future self and my future family I’d like to have a place to call home. Structure and atmosphere. So I’m fine with settling down, I think I’m even content with staying close to where I live now… as long as I get to be fueled up every so often. Or preferably like a lot!
Back to this past week, wow it felt amazing to be able to wear short sleeves and not freeze! Hallelujah somebody? Red Rock Canyon was such a beautiful drive. All I could think about was how good it would feel to wake up to that view and drink a cup of coffee, is that lame? So be it. The Hoover Dam was an incredible thing to take in. Landscape, history, and entirety in all. I even loved The Strip, it reminded much of Bourbon Street. Overall, I would love to go back, I can’t wait to go back because there’s so much more to see. But in the meantime and between time (as DJ Casper once said) I’ll relive through pictures and post way more than necessary.
