Scenes from New Mexico

Happy Monday, friends!

I'm back from a whirlwind weekend in New Mexico! The entire side of my mom's family made the trip to Albuquerque for my cousin Chris' wedding. We had such a fun time and the wedding was absolutely beautiful! Congratulations to Chris and Katie...welcome to our crazy family!!

Since I went to sleep around 1:30 this morning and am digging through suitcases to find all of my toiletries, shoes, hair brushes and flat iron to get myself ready for work today, I thought it would be fun to give you some photo highlights! I didn't upload any wedding photos from my small camera yet, so those will be to come :) Meanwhile, here are some highlights from touring the ABQ, our day trip to Santa Fe, riding a tiny tram car up the side of a moutain and of course, some local eats!

So there's a little story of my trip in photos, minus the wedding of course. I'll share some of those pics later this week! Hope you all had a great weekend and have a fantastic week!!
