Happy New Year!

For the first time ever, I got to see the farolitos that line Canyon Road in Santa Fe on Christmas Eve. Paper bags with sand and a candle in the bottom, they are a sight to see…when they light up the night by the hundreds.

The Plaza, downtown. Farolitos everywhere!

Instead of a Christmas star, a Christmas Zia.

Grandma and Grandpa Lucero…more often affectionately called Grammie and Grampie by Zia.

Zia finally met her Santa Fe great-grandparents.

Maybe a little out of place, but I did promise to show what I made David’s mom…a neck pillow and an eye pillow. They’re filled with organic millet and essential oils. Grandpa quickly snatched up the neck pillow for his neck which he said was hurting.

All too soon, it was time to hit the road again. It’s such a great drive through the mountains back to Colorado. I love every bit of it.

This may or may not be Pike’s Peak…can anyone confirm or deny?

Either way, it’s lovely.

Hope you had a happy new year!

    If you’re driving north on I-25, I’m almost certain it’s Pikes Peak. It’s the farthest eastern 14er.
