I have returned from my wedding and honeymoon in Vegas! We had a wonderful time and the Paris hotel and Mon Ami Restaurant did wonderful jobs. I'm so happy we decided to go with a fun Vegas wedding that included 30 of our closest friends and family.
After a few days in Vegas we headed out to Utah. We shopped, hiked, shopped some more, played golf (well he did), more hiking... While in Springdale (outside of Zion National Park) I made certain to support many of the local artists (you can still smell my credit card burning). Springdale is also home to several rock and mineral shops many of whom cut their own stones. I spread my good cheer to them as well and came home with many wonderful cabochons including some local Utah stone. Pictures to come!
I took sooooooo many photos and hope that the landscape shots of Zion and Snow Canyon lead to some southwest inspiration in my future jewelry and collage work. Utah had so many wonderful things to offer including; beautiful parks, friendly people, and a slow-down from my normal NY state of mind (much appreciated).
Unfortunately, now that I'm home I cant slow down as there is much needed unpacking and cleaning to do. Also, I should go put out the fire in my wallet!
