Wandering around Taos

The queen wanted to head over to La Lana Wools, a knit shop across the street from the Wool Fest. To get back to the main street, you walk through this portal in a wall that is erected along the street. It’s interesting to see the people walk by, some look to see what’s on […]

Self Portrait Friday

There is the self portrait and then there is the self portrait with the queen – she who is always royal. It isĀ  quite unfortunate that we failed to receive an invitation to Kate and Wills’ wedding. I’m imagine the thing is buried in a stack of mail on the kitchen island. Maybe it accidentally […]
