Growing up a military brat, I have moved to many different cities. I even lived in Italy for 3 years! (My dad is a Navy Retiree.) Moving was something that I grew to love and anticipate. I knew every 3-5 years my dad would be relocated or stationed somewhere new. I loved moving to a new place, meeting new people, and exploring new opportunities. It was and is still very exciting to me.
About two years ago, before I had my son, I was feeling that itch to move. Instead of packing up the hubby and the canine ladies, I decided to ask myself some questions. “Was I running from something or someone?” “Why was I feeling this urge to relocate?”
I noticed that most people go through life practicing the “flight or fight response”. At the time, I wasn’t really happy about how things were going relationship, career, and school -wise. (I talked a little bit about that in my I’m 29 post.) Instead of my typical flight response, I figured I needed to answer those questions. I really began to look at everything in retrospect. Shortly after I began this self-evaluation, I found out I was pregnant. (Pregnancy will flip your life upside down.)
Every thought thereafter was baby centered. I started a blog, Boxer and the Baby to share my motherhood experiences. (Unfortunately I have since neglected that blog.) Time went by so fast. I looked up and my son was two, my business was growing, and the hubby was doing his thing too. But we still felt the itch to move… It was time for a change of scenery.
This was also around the same time my hubby become one of the founders of Fluencr, a tech start-up. In October, Fluencr received its first round of investor funding from The Vegas Tech Fund for $300,000. And you kinda want to go where the money is–– hence why we’re moving to Vegas.
Las Vegas is more than the Vegas Strip. It’s actually a more economical Silicon Valley where the cost of living is very affordable and family-friendly. I have already picked out my dream house! It is centrally located, in walking distance of a city park, and minutes from my “happy place” a.k.a. Target. I’m looking forward to meeting Vegas Naturals and also venturing 3 hrs up the road to L.A. If you’re in Vegas, let me know your favorite spot by commenting below. We’re moving from Houston, TX to Las Vegas, NV immediately after the holidays.
I’m a firm believer that “life sends you clues as to what direction you should be taking“. So we have been paying attention to the clues and praying that God would align all the pieces of the puzzle for a seamless transition. Thankfully, God is a prayer answering God. But we still have a lot on our prayer list. Please join us by continuing to pray for a smooth transition, good health, and more funds for Fluencr.
As always thanks for reading.
PS: Happy Holidays!!!
Congrats on your move to LV. I’ve been here for 13 yrs, and I love it. There’s a natural hair group here in LV. There also on FB ” Natural N Sassy-Las Vegas” They have meet ups from time to time. When I really feel like getting out shopping, I love all the outlets we have throughout the valley! So many places to eat! Looking forward to meeting some new naturals!
Thanks so much for that info. I will look up those groups. I’m looking forward to all the GOOD food!

I am a born and raised Las Vegan! I love the desert and find beauty in it 🙂 Hope you do too. My favorite places are Valley of fire, Mt. Charleston’s Mary Jane falls trail, and to eat- the Fat Greek (flamingo) and the Cracked Egg (cheyenne). Both locally owned!
Congrats and welcome to Vegas! I am a native and I would love to connect with you once you get settled. There are a lot of great eats and fun things to do in the spring when the weather is nice. Happy Holidays and safe travels!
