Hi friends-- We are experiencing a rare week of 40-50 degree days here in Vegas, so that has been an interesting change. Baby and I have been trying to get out of the house every few days--in addition to the physical and mental healing that I've been experiencing, one thing I didn't anticipate was the … Continue reading Sober in Vegas: Sunrise Coffee
Today's post is a limited time alcohol-free event that was too amazing not to write about! On the north side of town at Craig Ranch Regional Park (which I should mention is an incredible park even when it's not hosting this event) through the end of February is the China Lights Festival. There are over … Continue reading Sober in Vegas: China Lights Festival
Getting outside with a baby is harder than I thought.... As some of you who have been reading awhile may know, the outdoors is my therapy and my refuge. It's been amazing getting to know this little one, but it's also been hard to be cooped up in the house this past month. We've been … Continue reading Sober in Vegas: Floyd Lamb Park
I am so excited to have a few minutes to update today--little one is sleeping in the basinet near me and I'm taking advantage of these moments to write. I've missed writing on this blog so much that I'm giving up the possibility of an hour of sleep to update...! Only a few weeks into being … Continue reading Sober in Vegas: Retro Vegas
Friends! It has been so long. I apologize.... ...the past two months were full of end of pregnancy, giving birth, and trying to figure out how a baby works. So many emotions, fears, joys, tears, laughs, and new experiences. I can hardly even process it all. It's wonderful and scary and overwhelming and exciting. I will … Continue reading Sober in Vegas: Becoming a mom and two things I meant to post weeks ago…!

I know the stores always try and make us rush through fall for later winter holidays, but I've been trying to savor and enjoy the days getting shorter and crisper and cooler. If you all can believe it, we've been getting down in … Continue reading Sober In Vegas: Winchester Cultural Center
I am delighted to add yet another location to the alcohol-free list of things to do here in Las Vegas. After doing this blog for about 10 months, I can't believe there are still so many places to visit and enjoy here in Vegas for those of us who are in recovery or choose not to … Continue reading Sober in Vegas: Priscilla Fowler Fine Art
Before today's post, I wanted to share two quick sobriety related articles that made me really happy--hope you enjoy: The Salt featured an article about the growing demand for non alcoholic craft beverages--hooray! I am happy businesses are starting to realize we'd love more options than a water... The Kitchn posted from the perspective of … Continue reading Sober in Vegas: Healing Garden
Hi Friends, I have been feeling especially blue this past week, not sure if it's pregnancy hormones, every tragedy that has been happening throughout North America (from shootings to hurricanes to earthquakes to wildfires to all of the ones I'm sure I'm missing because it feels that overwhelming right now) or just the general changing … Continue reading Sober in Vegas: Beck, or the soundtrack to falling in love with your city as a teenager
Hello out there, My soul is still just so heavy with the events of this past week. My heart is with the victims and families of those present at the event on Sunday night and all those who experienced trauma that evening. I try not to be political here, and all I can say is … Continue reading Sober in Vegas: Miracles are Brewing… Fellow Sober Vegas Local Carly Benson

So I accidentally deleted the First Friday post! 😦 Not sure if any of you have ever seen something in Drafts that was actually published, but sadly I thought I was deleting an old draft post on First Friday but instead deleted the real post! I may try and salvage the post, and if any … Continue reading Sober in Vegas: Whoops, now I know….
