Petroglyph National Monument

Only a few minutes from Santa Fe plaza, and next to Santa Fe airport, this National park is absolutely amazing. Looking for a nice hike, early in the morning we drove a few miles to see history created by the Pueblo Indians. To describe this site with words doesn’t do it justice. We parked and walked to the base of several cliffs covered in volcanic rocks. Grass, and a carpet of beautiful wild flowers, bordering them almost framing each rock, so they can be visible from miles away. A brisk hike took us to a group of rocks covered in drawings. So vivid and clear as it was done recently. Images of birds, horses, lizards, and circle of life covered many of their surfaces. Some images were difficult to interpret, we did our best!!

From the very top of the cliffs the view of the open land is breathtaking, knowing it was created by lava pouring down from 6 volcanos almost 200,000 years ago traveling down for many miles and finally settling down creating cliffs, were we stood enjoying this perfect view.

I am looking forward to come back for the history, the view, and the hike that brought us to this unique place. A perfect place for the entire family.

If you like the outdoors⛰

Farmers market

Traveling has its ups and downs, especially if you’re traveling with your family, I know this as a fact. One of my most favorite places to travel with my family, keeping in mind everyone’s favorite activities, is traveling to Santa Fe New Mexico. A place with great food, gorgeous views, beautiful weather, and entertainment. Almost every weekend in summer time there is a market specializing in Spanish art, Indian art, and contemporary arts. Plus having the choice to visit more than 100 galleries on Canyon Road and shopping for southwestern jewelry, made and designed by Native Americans. There is also hiking the beautiful Aspen Vista, and many more trails, only a few miles from Santa Fe plaza.

Aspen Vista (6 mile hike)

This beautiful city is easy to visit with family and little ones, since many hotels and restaurants are accommodating to families, and pets. Please remember when you are in Santa Fe, eat without restrictions, hike with plenty of water, and be open to spending money on art that you will cherish for a life time.

Fresh look with homegrown Flowers

I like having flowers in my house and most of all flowers from my garden. Cut flowers can get expensive, and sometimes don’t last very long, but having a few flowering plants can help you create beautiful arrangements. It makes me happy when I create small vases full of herbs, and blooms for every room in the house. From early spring to early summer. Purple pansies, star jasmine, primrose, daisies, gardenias, dahlia, and mums. I can’t Waite for more blooms popping their heads out this summer season.

3 Reasons To Shop For Makeup At Target 👀🌱💲

Physician Formula Blush with mirror & a brush

We live in the world of information, and have easy access to any information we desire. If I read about a place, an author, even a spice that I am not familiar with, I am googling for information right away. When it comes to shopping, comparing prices is easy, without having to sacrifice quality.

As consumers we have access to many sources, local and international, and retailers are aware that the quality, design, and pricing of their products are consistently being reviewed and talked about in social media.

I consider myself well aware of my needs and my families needs, and bargain shopping is what I am good at, for almost everything from plants, food, clothing, and other everyday wants & needs. I don’t sacrifice quality when I cook, or when I buy makeup or anything we use on our skin, even if I have to read pages of information on its ingredients.

This brings me to my 3 reasons for shopping from Target. 1- A large collection.

New favorite mascara by Maybelline 🥳

2- Clean ( less preservative) makeup

3- pricing

Makeup is of course not a necessity, but most of us like me, use it daily, and love to have an up to date, trendy collection to choose from. Target has a great makeup collection that covers every age, every skin type, and every skin color. They even have how to videos on their site, on how to use “the new and trendy makeup”.

Investing In Things That Add To Our Happiness & Comfort🏡💕

Picking flowers during classroom breaks☺️

After a year spend indoors, we all have come to realized if our homes are comfortable and well furnished and well equipped to keeps us happy. Last year I woke up every day, running around trying to make studying on zoom comfortable and more private. Tried to cook without making too much noise, and tried to entertain little ones without using electronics. Buying groceries on timely manner, so I didn’t have to wait for milk for 4 days, and manage to prepare and serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, dictated by school and meeting hours.

Going outdoors became a necessary chore. Our eyes needed a break, we needed a break from each other, and we needed fresh air for our physical and mental health. Our backyard turned into a playground, and front yard was private enough to set up chairs for reading, and snacking outdoors.

I was happy to notice that I had the basics to make our home a playground, a school, an office, and my kitchen equipped to cook and bake, without delays or extra stress.

My believe in creating a home based on the most important fact “ Invest In Things That Make Us Happy & Comfortable” became more obvious. A manageable garden, with flower pots that can be moved indoors, a living room with soft large pillows for napping and playing game boards on the floor. A kitchen ready to prepare and store large platters for snacks, and movie night cheese trays. A patio and a porch for little ones to play, learn gardening, and pick flowers, with comfortable chairs and small tables to hold books, and a bubble machine.

I learned more, and was much more aware of my families comfort and productivity, but what was interesting to learn was the fact that when staying together meant staying healthy, keeping each other happy became an easy task.

Storing sweaters

Storing wool & cashmere sweaters

I am putting away my sweaters, and if we have another cold front coming through I am planning to wrap a dawn comforter around myself. I need the space and sweaters take too much room in my closet.

As you know with natural fibers, cashmere and wool, folding is better than hanging. Sweaters keep their shape better and seams don’t come apart when they are folded. Even more so with hand knit sweaters. To keep sweaters in perfect condition you need a dry space with a good air circulation, that way any bugs interested in spending a nice warm summer in your closet, they won’t think twice about cozying up to your beautiful cashmere and wool sweaters.

I have a system that has worked for me for years, and every fall when I look forward to putting my sweaters back on a shelf in my closet, I am always happy to see find them in a great condition. To store them I use a 100% cotton, queen or king size pillow case, and before storing them I wash my sweaters in cold water, and completely dry them.
