Even though we hardly blogged at all last month, we did a lot, which is probably why we didn't blog. December is always a great month for me because my birthday* (the best day of the year!) is in December, followed shortly by Christmas and New Year celebrations. This was also our first holiday season spent in Santa Fe! So without further ado, here is the photographic evidence.
|Christmas lights in the plaza - looked WAY cooler in person.|
|Lights outside of the Capitol.|
|The capitol lined with farolitos (paper bag lanterns)|
|Snowshoeing with friends on Birthday Weekend!|
|Birthday donuts on the morning of my birthday.|
|Eric & I at La Boca on my birthday!|
|We got matching headbands at a white elephant party.|
|Eric on Christmas morning with my present to him.|
|Our Christmas trees!|
|I dog-sat the cutest dog over the holidays and we took some great walks.|
*In one of my Spanish classes in college, we were talking about holidays and each person had to say what their favorite holiday was and why. I said, "My birthday, because it's a day all about me!" and, to my surprise, everyone else laughed. I still think this is a perfectly acceptable answer.
