dirt.

22 May

I’ve had a few memorable showers in my 29 and 3/4 quarters years.

I know, I know…what kind of statement is that anyway?

But hear me out.

I’m talking a shower where you turn the heat up as hot as you can stand it without feeling as though your skin is about to melt off your body.

I’m talking a shower that fills your bathroom with so much steam that it becomes difficult to take a deep breath; and in the very same moment, feeling the dirt, the grime, the sweat, the laughter, and the sand melt off your body and swirl around the drain, waving as though shouting gleefully, “until next time!”.

I’m talking a shower that leaves your skin pink with heat and the beginnings of a slight sunburn and memories from a weekend outside under the hot Rocky Mountain sun.

Now that’s a memorable shower.

Not everyone can boast about their fabulous relationship with their mother. A relationship in which you actually seek out opportunities to travel together, have a night at the theater together, watch the Sunday Morning Show “together” (though 1000 miles apart), and have virtual fashion consultations on a weekly basis. A relationship where you can quite honestly say that you are each other’s favorite people, where non-stop giggles are commonplace and date nights always come with dessert.

A few weeks ago we were fortunate enough to jet-set away to New Mexico for an epic chick trip exploring the Land of Enchantment. We began our getaway in Santa Fe where we shopped, gallery hopped, listened to live music in the town square, hiked around Bandelier National Monument, caught up with Tommy Moe, and noshed on some delicious New Mexican cuisine.

From Santa Fe we made the trek up to Taos where we nestled into small town life, hanging with llamas, making friends with our B&B neighbors from New England, traipsing across the Rio Grande Gorge with migrating tarantulas, were blessed by the sacred dirt from el Santuario de Chimayo, and checked out the quaint New Mexican hamlets of Red River, Chimayo, and Questa.

What a lucky girl I am!
