Case and I headed to New Mexico this weekend for work and play. Our first night was in Las Cruces where we stayed with friends and were treated to homemade pizza, games, frozen custard and warm memories. (Thank You Kenneys!!) From there it was off to Santa Fe.

A light drifting of snow welcomed us in Santa Fe. It was perfect sweater big furry coat warm by the fire later weather... which I enjoyed every second of. The shops were abundant with beautiful jewelry, blankets, art and more jewelry. Our bellies were soon full from The Shed and Pasqual's. A little history exploration at the New Mexico History Museum and then crepes and a nap (for me, Case had conference meetings).

As I rode to the airport this morning the sunrise was like no other I have ever seen. One side of the sky was bursting with bright yellows and oranges while the other was glowing a soft pink and lavender. I didn't even take a single photograph, I just took in the beauty and wanted to remember it forever.

So yes, I was easily enchanted by the snow, colors, shapes, people, history, pueblo architecture, food and art all around me in this land just a quick plane ride away.

What gorgeous pictures! I've never really been to that part of the country, but I think I should put it on my list.

Years ago I couldn't see the beauty but this trip it was all around me.
