Last week my boyfriend and I packed up and made our way to Vegas. It's the one place I've never been that I felt it was time to explore. One of the coolest thing about flying to Vegas is spotting the Grand Canyon from above. Lucky for me and my trusty zoom lens, I was able to capture the beauty, a moment I'll always remember. After arriving and checking in, we made our way to our room. While most people love the view of the strip, ours was of the mountains. Being a city girl, a view of the mountains was just what I needed. We chose the MGM Grand solely on the pool or pools to be exact. Afternoons were spent floating in the lazy river, taking dips in the pools, and just enjoying the heat. Half way through the week, my best friend and his boyfriend flew down to join us. This trip was an amazing one, and definitely one we all needed. Now I'm just waiting to plan a trip back soon!
