Pumpkin Picasso and the Shame of Adulting

Fall. The time of year when leaves turn shades of orange and red, brisk breezes ruffle scarves, boots are required and the smell of pumpkin wafts through the air…if you live somewhere else. Here in Vegas, fall means 80 degree weather, there are no trees to look at and...

FIVE OUTDOOR GEMS NEAR LAS VEGAS

Moving from Utah where mountains, waterfalls, red rocks and lakes are around every corner moving to Las Vegas was an adjustment. Within my first month here I’ve gone exploring to find what outdoor activities were near Las Vegas. If you decide to go on a hike make sure...
