We've made it. At the end of a crazy week (finishing our interim courses and stories), we loaded what felt like most of our belongings into my car and, yesterday, headed to Taos, New Mexico.
The closer we got, the more beautiful the drive.
We left home around 10:30 and arrived in Taos a little after 6:00 (we stopped for lunch in Roswell). The casita we are renting was built by our host by hand and took two years. The details are unique and beautiful.
There's a little garden with an outdoor kitchen.
The ceilings and cabinets are made of cedar. The owner even made the bed!
The bathroom is my favorite part.
And there's a little laundry room:
We'll be calling the casita home for the next month. Our goal was to find a quiet place to write and to be able to get out in nature (it's typically in the 70s during the day and the lows at night are in the 40s). We're looking forward to exploring Taos and nearby (about 1.5 hours away) Santa Fe. If you have any recommendations, please send them our way!
Last night, we had prosecco and snacks for dinner.
I was so tired that I found myself asleep by 9pm (10pm our time but still).
After a brunch at Gutiz and some errands this morning, we've had a quiet afternoon. I'm still adjusting to the altitude but hopefully will acclimate soon.
Happy June dear readers. We hope you are having fun adventures this weekend!
