From time to time, the creative mind needs refueling. The way I refueled my creative self this past week was through travel. First, a short trip to Vegas with my dear husband. We didn't go for gambling, but just to get away and be alone together. Next, we went to Reno, where his parents live. Matthias had to leave for work, but I stayed on for a few days. My in-laws took me up to Lake Tahoe, which I haven't visited since I was a little kid. I had a bad ear infection that time, so I had no memory of the lake. It is remarkably spectacular! Some of the sights:
A few photos of the edge of Lake Tahoe. I love the contrast of the blue water and the white rocks. I could have spent all day sitting on one of those rocks. Next time!
This vintage car with matching trailer we first saw in Vegas. I saw it again in Reno, because "Hot August Nights" was going on, where all the vintage car fanatics meet for a week of old cars and fun. The photo doesn't really do it justice. The inside of the trailer was ADORABLE!!! It had Betty Boop curtains and everything.
We drove through this beautiful storm on the way back from Vegas. We even got rained on a little bit!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
