we did it.
another work week has come and gone. i was tuckered out yesterday from the 12-hour day prior but am back, rejuvenated and ready for the weekend!
as much as i adore my city by the bay, i have always been curiously attracted to the radiance of the southwest. lately, i have been dreaming up a fantastic road trip to the stunning cities of new mexico – albuquerque, santa fe and taos. here are a few of my favorite bits…

    this picture had me dreaming of san francisco. my old home. relocated to the east coast with the hubs to be closer to the fam & all of our summer getaways include a body of water! it’s hotsy totsy in the big apple, so any escape to a beach is a dream.
