i've been in Vegas...

My mom and I had the opportunity to stay at Tahiti Village Resort in Las Vegas from Tuesday to Saturday. 
A much needed mini-vaca. It was absolutely lovely to not be responsible or have to made decisions for five whole days! Incredible. 
My mom hadn't been to Vegas in, like, 15 years. The Bellagio wasn't even there! lol. She was quite amazed with the glitz and glamor and bright lights of the Las Vegas strip. The dancing water show at The Bellagio was her favorite thing... until we went to see...
Yes!!! We were blessed to have purchased for us, two tickets to see the Cirque Du Soleil show O at The Bellagio. 
Amazing. Inspiring.
Uplifting. Eccentric.
Stunning. Breathtaking.
Emotional. Sensual.
Powerful. Entertaining.
Beautiful. Mind-blowing.
From the moment the curtain lifted, my jaw dropped to the ground and my eyes welled up with tears of joy and wonder. Such a sense of beauty and appreciation and possibility and hope...
When I was first asked what I thought of the show, the only thing that came to mind was life-changing. And I believe that it was, in a sense. 
For the first time in quite a while, I was able to see something beautiful, and let it touch me, touch my heart, and affect me in a way that was pleasing and inspiring. 
I love to feel inspired. 

The rest of our trip was lovely. We had an amazing dinner at RAO's inside Caesars Palace.
Rao's Las Vegas Entrance
Lovely aritsan breads, and delicate pastas and smooth glasses of wine. It was divine.
I truly enjoyed 'girl time' with my mom... I don't think that we have ever been on a trip together, and it was truly one of the very best trips I have ever had. I love you Mom. Thanks for spending some time (relaxing) with me! xoxo
