Today marks one year since my move to Las Vegas. I can still remember when I first arrived in Las Vegas with all our belongings and I just couldn’t believe that this would be our home. For today’s post I wanted to write about my thoughts on my decision to move to Las Vegas and where I see myself in one year.
I originally planned a series about Las Vegas and why I moved here and all that good stuff. Unfortunately, I never got around to it. But I plan to post about it in the next few months. If not on here, maybe on my youtube channel. Make sure y’all are subscribed to me so you don’t miss a thing!
Nevada is such a beautiful place to live
I love living here! Let me just get that out of the way, Nevada is such a beautiful place to live. You have your mountains, your lakes and your snow. A little bit of everything. If you guys ever look through my Instagram photos, you will notice that I love taking photos in nature. I love outdoor photos, I feel that natural lighting is the best, I just feel more beautiful in that type of lighting. Whenever we get a chance to go shoot some photos, I tell my fiancé to head to the mountains or just a beautiful scenery area.
I have actually gotten questions asking which locations I take my photos at. I think for now I kind of want to keep it a secret, because I’m afraid that if I let you all know, those places will no longer be as peaceful and enjoyable for me. Maybe I’m being selfish, but I just want to hold on to the little things in life that make me happy.
Living in Vegas has shown me that there are many different things here than in California. A few of these things I have had to get used to. For example, if you’re at a turning lane and the arrow is yellow and flashing, then you can make a turn, you just have to yield. Small things like that at first were completely out of this world for me. But now your girl’s a pro!
One thing I absolutely love about living here is that there is no traffic. I know around Los Angeles area traffic can be crazy! Or where I lived, traffic at 4pm can leave you almost pulling your hair out. I’m one of those people that really, really hated traffic. That was one thing that I can definitely do without.
Living here, means no traffic
I love that restaurants stay open later and you can find chinese food or ribs pretty much all night long. Not that I would stay up crazy hours of the night. But you know, for those days you do stay up or have a night out, choices are necessary!
I feel like this past year of living here has been a huge year of transition and I was still getting used to. For example, the heat in the summer is no joke! I pretty much stayed inside with the A/C on at full blast and only went out if I was heading to the pool : )
One thing that I’m super stoked about is that during my time here within this past year, I was able to make one of my dreams come true! I became a 1st grade teacher! I wrote a blog post all about it, you guys should definitely check it out. I still can’t believe that in one year I was able to make my dream career happen… Hard work and dedication can make anything happen! Remember that!
Overall, I love living here. I do miss California and the ocean, but that’s what vacations are for! I can visit anytime, and actually go to the beach and put my feet in the water. When I lived there, it seemed I never found the time to go in the water. But boy do I miss those beach bonfires!

I will be back eventually, but for now, our life is here in Las Vegas. We plan to stay here for another year or two or even forever. I have always wanted to live in Washington, Arizona, Utah or the East Coast, but who know, maybe one day I will. But for now Las Vegas it is.
Have any of you moved to a different state? If so I would love to know more!
