I flew directly from San Diego to Albuquerque…from 2 weeks of amazing sights to a week of taking care of the storage issue and trying to see a few friends…so, I thought!!!!
My week in Abq turned out to be much more than I could have anticipated! First, my rental car experience was perfect! I performed amazing feats repacking my stuff into a smaller unit! Next, my friend Christine and her hubby welcomed me into their home for the entire duration of my stay. Thank you guys…it was wonderful hanging out with you! Our talks, laughs, outings, etc…just the best!
|Christine wasn't able to come to dinner|
so I brought her the drink umbrellas
which she immediately
put to good use!!!

|Thank you Stewart...WOW!|
|Thank you again for my tiny friend!|
Then there were my visits! Alorah was first on my list. I was blessed to see her again as well as meeting her love, Gordon in their new home!!! The house was delightful and so were its residents!!!
|Thank you Alorah and Gordon!|
Thank you both for your hospitality and love.
When I lived in NM, whenever any of my kids came into town, I’d invite friends to have dinner with us at a local restaurant to celebrate their arrival! Every time I did, there was a great turnout and a terrific time was had by all! It always meant so very much to me that my “new and growing family” supported me and my kids in that way.
|Thank you Lori for creating this gorgeous|
petrified wood necklace...you really know
me...it matches my new earrings perfectly!!!
|Thank you Cora for my wonderful|
happy bling! I love it!

Another visit that proved to be a delightful time was when I went to see my other two amazing kids from the youth group, Aidan and Liam and their parents, Crista and Shane…all of whom I adore! The boys grew so much in the last 10 months…WOW! It is difficult to express my gratitude for having had the opportunity to be a small part of their lives while I was living there…and it was just as sweet seeing them during my visit!!! Crista crocheted Minion mittens for my grandson and they are adorable! Cameron put them on and wouldn’t take them off!!! He loves them!
What a memorable visit to my beautiful southwestern home! I am truly blessed!
