Writing, traveling, politics, food, coffee, etc.

First, apologies for falling off the radar for so long. Life got a little crazy after returning from Europe last year but some great opportunities came from it that have kept me extra busy. But nobody should be so busy they can’t take time to explore the world and find new experiences—which is why I’m in Mexico City this week celebrating Mexican Independence Day. I’ve explored ancient pyramids, went cantina hopping, watched the president of Mexico lead El Grito, and have eaten delicious street food. The picture is me in El Zócalo last night and I hope to share more pictures soon. For now, hasta luego!
My third Easter pilgrimage. Second time walking to Chimayo. Won’t be my last. #santuariodechimayo
I feel bad for people who have never had green chile for breakfast. #abqeats #greenchile
Chicken wings, ribs, bacon, a crab leg. Just a few of the things in my Bloody Mary. #sundayfunday
Sometimes you decide you need to get out of the country for a little bit.
I guess I could get used to this.
I'm glad I took the time to check out what's happening with Villa Myriam--and not just because I scored a free can of nitro coffee. Today they unveiled a new coffee shop and roaster and the space looks amazing. Congrats to the team at VM and best of luck on this new venture!
I took exactly one photo at this year's #balloonfiesta . I may or may not have been laying down flat on the field after pulling an all-nighter.
A new book and coffee. All set. #📚 #☕️ #alittlelife
I went leaf peeping yesterday. It was my first time hiking since the Camino de Santiago. I also learned that the answer to red or green, even in nature, is Christmas. #leafpeeping #nmtrue #fourthofjulycanyon
After three months, I'm home.
It's not the autobahn but it'll get me home soon.
I try to limit my fast food consumption to road trips so I had to fit in some indulgences from both Shake Shack and In-N-Out while I had the chance.
That was cool. Took my sister on a helicopter ride over the Las Vegas strip. You only turn 21 once, may as well do it right. Happy birthday, Natasha!
