Hola Readers...did you all think I had finally been buried by my books with no hope of escape?
Nope, I was just on a whirlwind Las Vegas trip for Hubbins birthday. The trip was awesome, like so awesome, like so so so awesome. We purposely designed the trip with very few time crunches so that we could maximize relaxation time, which is what we both really needed. This environment seriously got my creative juices flowing and I not only came up with several brand spanking new post ideas, but I also finished two books, both of which were amazing in their own ways. The new post ideas really excite me because I have been feeling drained of all creativity lately and feel like I am either repeating myself, or that I am just throwing up generic random posts. These new ideas are ones that, to me at least, really make me feel happy, creative and the reason I got into writing this blog in the first place. The books I finished made me happy. One was a book I have been trying to finish for a couple weeks. I finished it on the plane on the way there and then just sat there, inspired to write and write and write. The second book was one that fit the environment so well I swear it was written just for this trip. The whole feel of the trip also inspired my poor over worked brain. We got to see the Cirque du Soleil aquatic show "O" and it was sheer magic. After the show, all I wanted to do was dive into my magical books and continue the dream. The bath tub in our room was another great bit.
These tubs are so deep and so long I actually float when I'm in them. Combine that with a glass or three of wine, a good book and some great music and my brain is just happy happy happy. To finish of this trip of inspiration my brother flew us over the Grand Canyon in his helicopter. We got the total VIP experience, complete with champagne at the bottom of the canyon. Aside from a little desperately needing to pee incident, it was just the coolest thing ever. Got to finish off my trip by going straight to my fire station and working and chilling with my other family, which just cemented the great brain space. So all of this to say you will hopefully be seeing some high quality posts and some in depth ramblings in the near future. Happy Reading Everybody!
