Home At last!

We left early this morning to drive from Arkansas back to our home in New Mexico, a long and boring 12 hour drive.  

The Mr and I had a wonderful vacation in Arkansas visiting family and enjoying the holidays, but now it is back to reality.  I am glad to be home, but not happy to come home to frozen pipes!! I NEED a shower but it doesn't look like it is going to happen tonight.

My puggle, Chloe, loves to lay in my lap on car rides!! She literally stayed in my lap for 12 hours and just slept or stared out the window...such a good pup.


We made it back to New Mexico in time to enjoy a beautiful sunset over the snow covered high desert terrain.  There is nothing more beautiful than a sunset/sunrise in New Mexico, pictures do not do it justice!  Just another reason to live here :)



I feel like I have been away from the blogging world forever!! I hope everyone had a great Christmas and Happy New Year!  Yay 2013!!
