As Luck Would Have It

They say that what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
Well, not always.
I met the man of my adolescent dreams in Las Vegas nine months ago.
At the airport.
We still marvel at the intricacies of fate that brought us together.
How easily we might have missed each other.
I made this book to collect our story.
The covers were etched and soldered.
The pages were rusted and dyed.
The gaming token is from McCarran Airport in Las Vegas.
Filling the pages will take a little longer, but it'll be happy work.

    I didn't know you met him in Vegas!!! That is really cool. I have a special love for Vegas even though there is a lot not to love. So this is very intriguing!
    So happy for you, my friend.
