On the Road Again....

11 hours after the car engine started, my Mom and I made it as far as Albuquerque, New Mexico. The drive was really beautiful and peaceful, and though I always get really homesick by the end of a vacation, I realized-I do well with a vacation from day to day life. When I’m ‘trapped’ in a car-I can’t start (or finish) any projects, I can’t find misc things that need organizing, cleaning, or rearranging. I have to actually stop, and when I stop, I actually get to think in depth. We spent the first evening in Albuquerque relearning a few of the sites, and mapping out a shopping plan of attack for Sunday. Sunday morning we headed to Old Town. We walked around, and enjoyed the square, and the shops. We grabbed a bite to eat at The Church CafĂ©, and then headed on towards Williams, AZ….but before I move on to that journey-I have to say I love Albuquerque-it’s such a cute little town along the old Route 66, and everything is really affordable and beautifully decorated.
