Had such a great time visiting with family and seeing so much beauty while home this past week! We attended my cousin's son's wedding, went to the Balloon Fiesta, took the train into Santa Fe for shopping, eating and site-seeing, and had a great time with my family. The weather was absolutely gorgeous every day, how I miss that about New Mexico!! I enjoyed every minute!
I took tons of pictures at the Balloon Fiesta and posted some of them here on this Flicker Account: 2010 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta I hope you get a chance to view them. This is just one of those things that photographs can't compare to seeing it in person. You must make it there at least once in your life time!
Here on the left are two of my sisters: Tina (L) and Judy (R), with the amazing Jester Balloon.
This Noah's Ark Balloon was MASSIVE and fascinating with all the detail of the animals hanging off the sides!! Just amazing!! (Remember, more Balloon photos here!!)
In Santa Fe we did lots of site-seeing, some shopping -- mostly browsing (although DH did buy me a gorgeous necklace) and lots of eating! The picture here is one of the many stained glass windows in the St. Francis Cathedral Basilica.
Gorgeous, right? It really was wonderful, I'm so blessed to have roots in New Mexico and understand the culture and the beauty of the area. It is a wonderful place to visit, and a great place to call home! I hope you get a chance to visit some time -- let me know if you do!!
TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
