Travel Tuesdays: Red Rock Canyon| Year 2

Another year in Vegas- lost money, gained some great memories! We’re taking a break from blogging about our Europe trip this week because we just got back from a week-long trip to Vegas for the annual WPPI Conference and Trade Show. Photographers- shoot me an email or comment below with what you’d like to know about the trade show/our experiences there/what to prepare for, etc. I’ll be sure to do a post on all those goodies soon!

While we were there, Maika and I celebrated our 7 year dating anniversary and although we weren’t lucky in Vegas this year (gambling and I aren’t really talking right now), we really are lucky in love and I’m so grateful to have an amazing partner by my side. He encourages me, believes in me, and pushes me to do more. He also does our taxes… which, let’s face it, makes him pretty much my knight in shining armor. Taxes are my modern day dragons and literally make me feel like I can’t enjoy the outside world until they are conquered.  So glad to have my husband, who excels where I fall short and attacks the challenges that I would rather run from.  I love you an indescribable amount, Maika, and thank you for all you do for us!!

    Vanessa - These photos are beautiful, Cherie!

    I was debating going to WPPI this year, but got overwhelmed when trying to register. I had no idea who so many of the speakers were and I felt like I was in over my head. I also didn’t know anyone else going. Are newbies welcome? Or would I be totally lost?ReplyCancel
