Vegas- A Week of Both Sad and Happy Tears

Last week was a roller coaster... I mean one of those roller coasters with ups and downs that compare to none other. 

We arrived in the Vegas area the Saturday before the shootings. I seriously could not believe the news on Monday morning. It made me so sick to hear of the massacre on the strip. 

The kids and I went to lunch that Monday and it brought tears to my eyes to see this: 

That is a really long line of people just waiting to give blood. Waiting hours. The Vegas stooping was just horrific, but there is good- people coming together to help. This is just a tiny snapshot of this, but I will say for the most part, people are pretty darn amazing. 

The week continued as I headed to the Strip to be with my friends and team for the Rodan + Fields convention. This year it actually felt good to be there. I’m not exactly a Vegas fan, but I am incredible proud of R+F and the spirit of the locals. The stories were amazing to hear and R+F raised a ton of money to help the victims families. 

The convention itself was so inspiring! I am really really proud of the company I aligned with. Their innovation is bar none. The new products are amazing. But best of all?: My team, my people. I just love them all. :) here are a few pics from the week:

After my convention, Oscar brought the kids to meet me at the hotel. Vegas was certainly not on my list of places to bring the kids, but figured why not enjoy the pool and grab some treats? 

We swam and walked the strip:

This kids loved all of the M&M choices:

And they tried a "flight" of international soda flavors (and I had coffee of course):

All in all it was a pretty amazing week in Las Vegas. 

Tragedy always leads to triumph as God is in control. 

Living with less and loving more,
