Santa Fe, New Mexico

this year for our family summer vacation instead of heading towards europe or the ocean, we headed west towards the desert

a little out of character for this ocean girl but for some reason, those desert vibes were calling me

and i am so glad they did

santa fe is filled with so much beauty!

i loved the architecture, all the details around it, the art, the colors, the food, the weather…. eighty five during the day, no humidity and cool nights

so many things to do in town and so much to do out of town too

hot springs, hikes in beautiful national parks, all under a gigantic blue sky!

and the best part?

our miami friends got to come meet us and we got to spend some much needed time together and as a family got to experience something new

it was a week filled with santa fe memories i will forever cherish

happy friday friends!

ps- i took a lot of pictures with my phone. this is a short instagram summary of our trip. we also went to the georgia o’keeffe museum and to Taos. we tried going to the georgia o’keeffe house/studio however tickets were sold out for the whole week we were there. next time!

our airbnb was pretty awesome

after dropping our bags off we quickly went out and stocked up the house with all sorts of fresh goodies

coffee mornings in santa fe

shopping on canyon rd

there are beautiful details everywhere you look in santa fe and i fell in love with every blue door i saw

fell in love with all the windows too

and all the details….

there were many matching outfits

celebratory times for being all together again

many delicious meals

a trip to the rio grange gorge

many outings around town

a trip to bandelier national monument

jemez hot springs

laundry down time at home

a night of amazing flamenco at el farol

and meow wolf

my santa fe souvenirs home in asheville. so many fun things to see and buy there!

west virginia

hello, hello, hello!!!

you may have noticed that it has been very quiet around here

we just returned from a two week trip out west and i didn’t take my laptop with me (or either one of my cameras. shocker!)

anyway, we are slowly adjusting to our regular home life and the eastern time zone

i have tons of phone pictures to share and i hope that i actually get to because i’ve been pretty bad at that (i never finished sharing our trip to spain last summer….)

prior to heading out west, we had the most wonderful week with family in west virginia

it was the perfect getaway to start us on our summer vacation mode

hope you are having a great week and a great summer so far!

we are in west virginia visiting family and this is what a nine year old Lily looks like

the last time we swam in this pond surrounded by the purple irises she was much smaller

seeing her get older and bigger so fast pulls on my mama heart strings like no other
