Las Vegas Frieniversary

View of the Las Vegas Strip

Early July my best friend and I headed to Las Vegas! Our main purpose of going was to see Britney Spears and her “Piece of Me” show. It was AMAZING! But aside from singing and dancing with the queen of pop from our teen years, we also did a lot of exploring, beverage tasting and pool lounging. I had never been to Vegas before and was like a kid in a candy shop with all the lights and attractions!

It had been some time since I took a trip that wasn’t on the tail end of a work trip, which usually means I am on a solo trip. It was great to be traveling not only without any obligations but also to have someone to share the adventures with. My friend and I have been friends for 25 years. So the trip was a Frieniversary! One of the things I loved about this trip was how we could so freely be as silly together as we have always been, that even though we are older and have more responsibilities we can still connect and laugh together for hours. It is so comforting to know that no matter how life changes and how much we each grow that we can always find a way to connect and support one another.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from our trip. I took so many photos and it was very hard not to include them all.  One of the places we visited was the Neon Museum and I loved everything about it. It gave me a great opportunity to use my camera and practice my photography skills.

Unfortunately, neither of us found our identical hand twin.

Neonsign

My favorite attraction we visited was The Neon Museum. The museum is an organization dedicated to collecting and preserving old iconic Las Vegas signs. They provide hour-long tours through their sign “boneyard” and give you detailed information on the history of signs and the process of preserving them. It was a really interesting way to learn about the history and culture of the city. I took over 160 photos at the museum and would go back in a heartbeat. If you are ever in Las Vegas I recommend visiting the Neon Museum.

I love that Katrina braved the heat with me for this endeavor. We were out looking at these signs and attending a guided tour at 10 a.m in over 100-degree heat. So worth it.

Here is to the next 25 years of friendship and future adventures!
