One of my goals for the year was to go somewhere scenic. Early this month, I accomplished that when I visited my grandparents in New Mexico. The land in the southwest is gorgeous! My Mother, my sister Lauren, and I enjoyed hiking in the mountains near Albuquerque and we even drove down to see Carlsbad Caverns. It was a wonderful trip, and I drew so much inspiration from the beauty of the land. What a perfect before-school vacation!
