Way laid back in Taos NM

We are in Taos NM, where my former image of laid back has taken on new meaning.  The excitement of our son’s wedding to an extraordinary woman made for a very exciting and emotional week-end.  Amidst the natural beauty of the Taos landscape, my Mother, sister, my daughterimage and I immersed ourselves in flowers.  Four shopping carts of blooms from Trader Joes in Santa Fe NM filled the kitchen, hall and foyer of the house. We spent 6 hours making table center pieces, boutonnières, bridal bouquet and hanging seat arrangements.  We never expected to spend so much time playing with the flowers.  Our hopes for some afternoon sight-seeing disappeared.  But with the mountains in full view from the kitchen window, and a house full of love, what more does life offer?  I am blessed.

When we return to Savannah, I hope to share more of the sights from this incredible Land of Enchantment!

    How I wish you could beam me back there (instantly, no travel!). Didn’t we have the best time ever? It’s a special special place and I feel so grateful to have the memories etched into my heart. I LOVED being there with you all, thank you. And i miss Little Anita!

  9. Congratulations on your son’s marriage! Judy and I honeymooned in New Mexico. We were in Santa Fe, Taos, then further north near the Colorado border where we camped. The state earns its slogan – enchanted, indeed.

    Hello Jayne, wow – the landscapes look so wide open and empty, vast and unexplored, it’s very different to the forest area we’re in here where you’re surrounded by trees and the views, even when far-reaching, are that of rolling hills covered with yet more trees.

    • You are so right Sunil. The landscapes are so VAST that it takes your breath away. The world suddenly becomes larger. You can see so far that an entire weather system can pass by without coming near. There are rainbows and giant cloud formations and soaring mountains and remarkable mesas. Incredible!
