Last weekend I took my final plane ride (I think) for at least a few months to visit some friends and family in SantaFe. Over the years I've really come to love and miss northern New Mexico. I love that it's big sky country- perfect for star-gazing at night, and that even on the easiest hikes, you may turn a corner to views that feel out of this age. I love the clarity of the light, created by the high altitude and dry desert air. And just when the soft shades of the landscape - the browns, rust, sage, and muted blues threaten to become monotonous - you will see a sky so blue it's almost purple, or the most vivid sunset of reds, oranges, pinks, and blues, and feel so blessed to in that place at that moment.
I want to share a few pictures from this weekend. On Saturday, Noah's mom held a baby shower for us. Yes, it was our third baby shower of the month. We've had a baby shower cocktail hour, a baby shower BBQ, and this time, a baby shower brunch with breakfast burritos from El Parasol. I was a little skeptical that anyone's breakfast burritos could compete with Noah's, but they give him a run for his money. Two days later, we were still eating the leftover breakfast burritos. (Is that a little gross to admit? They were still delicious.)
I received a new camera for my birthday, so please excuse my admittedly amateur attempts to document the party and some shots from the weekend. No recipe today, but I hope to post a couple over the next week or so.
