We are moving back to Las Vegas!
It was tremendous to live and work in The Big Apple for two years, but now on to Sin City for a 2nd time. (We lived there for one year in the past).
A lot of people have asked me if I am excited about this move… am I glad? Will I like living in Las Vegas?
My answers have been pretty short. I am glad. I am glad that my husband will have a job on a wonderful Cirque du Soleil show! I am glad that he gets to work in his field of music. I am glad the taxes are smaller there. I am glad Nevada has no state income tax. I am glad we will stop paying a NYC tax and a NY state income tax. I am glad that I will get to live in a house, and have a backyard. I am glad we will have a (modest) swimming pool! I am glad that I still have friends in Vegas!
…and L.A. is only four hours away (in the car). L.A. friends are not far! I am glad I will be able to drive to California and take my son to Lego Land, Disneyland, and beaches in SoCal.
I am glad for the nature in Summerlin (our little town in Vegas) that has scenic mountains, cactus plants, peaceful surroundings and friendly people.
This is a bittersweet change though. However – I think things are going to be just fine!
Oh — and Las Vegas now has an NHL hockey team, and an NFL football team is on the way! That is great news for the Vegas economy – more visitors will surely come in for the sports. They just might catch a Cirque show while in town too… Cool!
