Slowly but surely I am catching up on this blog - albeit piecemeal and way out of chronological order! The day after Christmas Kirk and I took a getaway trip to Santa Fe. It was our first kidless travel in 2+ years. Of course the morning we were to take off from NC the state was being pounded in snow. I still have no idea how our plane ever took off.
We chose Santa Fe because I have always wanted to discover this artsy town during the holidays. Many years ago our minister preached using the luminaria the town places atop the adobe buildings as context. It was a powerful message scripturally but also peaked my interest to see the candlelit beauty. As we checked into our hotel, La Posada, I was not disappointed. It was breathtaking.
It was a wonderful mini vacation. We did it our way "doing" a lot, but doing a lot we couldn't have done with Connor. Thank you parents for taking care of our little one. What an adult treat!
