Las Vegas 2004

Once Upon a Time: Vegas, Baby!

Las Vegas vacation, 2004.

In March of 2004 I went to Las Vegas for the first time. We stayed in a giant cartoon castle. I didn’t gamble much because I don’t like to gamble. But I love Las Vegas. We went to a Hard Rock and saw penguins and flamingos. I wore heels the first day and regretted it. Mat was living in L.A. so he came to visit. I didn’t get a picture. We played pool. I didn’t take too many pictures.

Las Vegas 2004

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
