In anticipation of summer (yes, I know we still have to go through spring first), here are a few pictures as a reminder that though it's not quite summer here, it certainly is summer somewhere in the world. I never got to upload these photos, but they were taken almost exactly year ago during Jen and Dave's wedding in gorgeous Playa del Carmen. What is one advantage of having a destination wedding? You can take all your wedding guests snorkeling with you on a private catamaran a few days before the wedding.
April showers seem to have made an early appearance this year, so while I'm waiting out the rain, here are a few pictures from the endlessly fascinating city that is Las Vegas. I went there this past February for WPPI, which was a great time to learn, be inspired, and also have a little fun.
We also ventured out a bit to Red Rock Canyon just as the sun was setting to take a few pics. Here are a few images of the lovely Kelly, more images later.
I heard that it had snowed in California while people were on their way to WPPI, but unfortunately I missed it. However, I did get to catch an encore performance. Flurries of snow pelted a portion of the 15 freeway on my drive back. The desert is remarkably beautiful when covered in snow.
And because I can never seem to get enough of Vegas, I recently committed my most impulsive act of the year (so far) -- I signed up for the Rock n' Roll marathon in Las Vegas. The half/full marathon is an idea that I've tossing around for about a year now. That combined with the lure of nighttime Vegas lights and music made this difficult for my compulsive nature to resist. And along the way I've collected a few hardy friends and family willing to run their first marathon right along with me. Misery certainly loves a whole lot of company. J
