beautifulwomen's brunch at Calvary Albuquerque
so great to hear from and meet the lovely @biancaolthoff
coming home to this is pretty fantastic
just a glimpse of our first week of advent 2012 through instagram and iphone photos. (i am @annaleahart over there.)  the big event had to be the surprise delivery of our new (used) piano!  this is our family gift for this christmas.  decorating the tree, pony rides and dinner with friends, buying gifts for our church's christmas store, the holiday stroll in old town albuquerque, and a special brunch with new/old friends (and meeting this lady!) rounded out our week with such festivity that being away from illinois was not as difficult. 

making memories here helps it feel like home.
