She's So Bright - Greetings from New Mexico!
Soaking up all the desert sun I can get

I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend!

I just got back from an incredible six days in Santa Fe. The dry desert heat, the red clay adobe walls, and the turquoise jewelry all make me feel like I’m on a wild west film set, stepping back in time to enjoy the fringed suede of the Southwest. We stayed at one of my favorite hotels, ate at the only Mexican restaurant I crave regularly, and camped under the stars in one of the darkest places in the U.S. I’ve been to Santa Fe during the chilly weather of Thanksgiving, and in the height of the heat in July, so I can definitively say that the weather at the end of May was perfect. Goldilocks approved: not too hot, not too cold, but just right!

I’m still getting the hang of traveling and blogging, so please bear with me as I get better at juggling posting, editing and writing while on the go. Most of my travel days are completely full and I need to get better at planning time to post while soaking in the sights. It’s quite a challenge – sort of like patting your head and rubbing your belly at the same time. On this trip I had about 10 minutes to glance at my phone and archive emails before crashing head first into a pillow. But, rest assured, I will get better (preferable scheduling posts far ahead of time!) and I will always come back with great new photos and stories to share.

With what feels like an endless stack of photographs to edit, and a summer travel schedule wide open, I’m ready to dig in and get sharing. Now, please excuse me while I daydream of that blue sky and listen to Santa Fe on repeat.

Stay tuned for more from our trip to New Mexico! And in case you’re wondering, this black cutout maxi dress is a summer favorite of mine!
