Albuquerque, NM

New Mexico holds a special place in my heart. Even as a kid, I enjoyed going there every summer to visit my grandparents. It wasn't until I got older that I really appreciated the beauty though. I went for the Balloon Fiesta last year (this year's is about to start!) and it was as amazing as I remembered.

Below, my grandpa and my mom are teaching Jason how to plant the chile pepper seeds. (These are from our trip there are few years ago.)

It had been a while since I'd seen my grandpa, so it was nice to catch up on this trip. We spent our time south of Albuquerque at his farm. These moments are so special - he has so many words of wisdom that I absolutely cherish. Whether it's about learning the value of hard work or hearing about the many benefits of whiskey (apparently my love of whiskey is genetic!), I love it all.

 Below are some quick snaps of my trip.

If you happen to find yourself in the Albuquerque Airport, do yourself a favor and get the Chai Tea Latte and Green Chile Stew from Black Mesa. Delicious!

See you next time Albuquerque!

Up Next: Our big trip is in a little over 2 weeks.
Cross your fingers that the standby gods smile upon us!
