Santa Fe you stole our heartJun 09, 2021
- The day was a busy one. I recorded a local podcast and visited two bookstores that have ordered and are carrying my book. Which...I might say feels pretty darn cool.
We spent the rest of day exploring, eating, and being one with the locals. We ate, drank, bought jewelry, art and explored some of the coolest spots where history was made.
Santa Fe was an unforgettable city in beauty, detail, creativity, kindness, and omg the food!
The days keep getting better and better with each new city we visit on my 15 state, 8 week, National book tour for my best selling book “Keep Going”
We are traveling as a family and each new city we visit Tillie (11) and Taci (10) pick their favorite part of each city too.
Here’s a little piece of what we did and learned in a day:
We learned that the oldest house and church in the United States are found in Santa Fe. (From 1610! Omg!)
It was so cool to see something so old.
The art was everywhere. From galleries, plants, street signs and the way people dressed.
I was really impressed and inspired. I love art.
We also went to two bookstores that are going to carry my moms book she wrote in them. The bookstores were really different. They had all kinds of beautiful rocks, jewelry, and other really cool artistic things for sale.
The Ark was the name of one. (That one was my favorite). The Beastie was the name of the other.
I was really really excited to be able to take my dog in every store and restaurant. Santa Fe has lots of dogs everywhere.
My second favorite thing was the buildings. Everywhere you look the buildings are made of clay and are so pretty. I want a big clay house.
And for me...
I was in love with the flowers. The way they arrange them is so pretty. Everywhere you look their is wild lavender, which is my favorite. It feels a bit like you are walking inside a really pretty painting.
We live in a city that is not as clean as it probably should be so when we come across a place that is immaculate it doesn’t go unnoticed. Santa Fe is immaculate.
Santa Fe won our hearts over! We will be back very soon!
