A Happy Anniversary

IMG_8509Tomorrow marks the one-year anniversary of my move to Santa Fe.  That’s right, I moved here exactly one year ago with one plastic fork, a paper plate, some granola bars, an inflatable mattress, and an unquestioning faith.

In this past year, I have developed a profound appreciation for mountains and sunsets, southwest culture and new friends.  Cool, crisp night air, summer hailstorms and blazing sunny days thrill me with the promise of unpredictability.  I am an observer and forever a student hungry for new ideas and experiences.  I have a deep respect for our native American culture and its emphasis on family, ancestors and connection to the earth.  I laugh at the sometimes hokey traditions here and have relaxed into their lack of pretenses.  And, most of all, I am enjoying creating a home that is calm, healing, and in harmony with nature.

Today I celebrated with my new cowgirl hat!
