The City That Never Sleeps

Jace and I celebrated our 1st anniversary this past weekend in Vegas! That's right, Vegas. Not my first choice in a "romantic" anniversary destination, but hey, it was practically free!! A few months ago, we sat through one of those ridiculously boring time share presentations, the ones where you pretend to be interested in whatever it is they are trying to sell you, when in all reality you will of course say "NO" to it... and leave having wasted their time, but WITH your FREE GIFTS! :) Yes we are those people. And the reward for the 2 hours of OUR wasted time was a FREE trip to Vegas! We couldn't pass it up and as dirty as that city is, it was REALLY nice to get away! We had a lot of fun! I can't believe it's already been a year!! I'm looking forward to many more fun filled years with my sweetheart :) Here are a few pictures!!

And my FAVORITE part of the trip!! The Las Vegas Temple!! Before our drive back home, we stopped to do a session :) Talk about going from one extreme to the other!! Getting out of that nasty city and entering the house of the Lord, was one of the coolest feelings ever :)

It's Ours!!

After about a month and a week or so, Jace and I FINALLY closed on our townhome! :) The long drawn out process is over, thank goodness, and we are so excited to have a place to call OURS. We are still moving and getting settled so pictures will come later, once everything gets organized! We are amazed at how much it already feels like home :) We couldn't be happier!
