Santa Fe art

Art is everywhere in Santa Fe, you cannot go steps without seeing something that catches your eye. Beauty surrounds you here, art is to Santa Fe, what water is to our bodies. In fact when imagining Santa Fe, I immediately recall the beautiful colors, the simplicity, and the culture. I do not believe one could travel to Santa Fe, and leave uninspired.

My Mum and I started our day off at the Georgia O’Keeffe ┬ámuseum. She is arguably the best known artist of Santa Fe, and I love the sexuality she expressed throughout most of her work, particularly the earlier pieces. After the museum we grabbed a bite to eat at a lovely French restaurant, with fresh baked baguettes. And then it was off to Canyon Road~ a road dedicated to art galleries.

In all honesty, it is quite a lot to take in, in just a day. The beauty is almost overwhelming, as your eyes dance from one piece of art to the next.  Santa Fe is simply sensational.

Girls getaway to Santa Fe

The time has arrived for our annual girls trip to commence..

My Mum and I started this tradition last year when my closest friend was murdered… not knowing what to do, or how to move forward my Mum and I headed down to Santa Fe, for a girls trip. It was a much needed getaway, and though at the end of our trip I was still heartbroken, I was once again able to see the beauty that surrounds us daily. We decided that each Thanksgiving we would return to Santa Fe to enjoy the art, shopping, and food.

Thanksgiving is a beautiful time here, the town and shops are just starting to set up their Holiday decor, and snow gently covers the array of colors the city is painted in. And for Mum and I, it is a much needed escape from our daily lives. Today we are off to Canyon Road, to visit the art studios… more to come!

You want me down on earth, but I am up in space

 

You cry, but it’s as though we always cheered- I am dancing amongst the stars. I am the milky way. Don’t doubt it, darling. I am the beauty, the laughter, the joy of everyday. For I am what I was destined to be.. I am an angel of the heavens. Bouncing.. hopping… galavanting from cloud to cloud. You cannot see me, but I am here. Forever dancing amongst the stars, the kind of forever that never sets. Don’t cry, for now I am dancing.

Xx,
