It’s a low key Christmas. Family is elsewhere and we can’t be, because when you are in retail, in a tourist destination, you don’t close your gallery and go away.
I love how the faralitos (what they are called in Santa Fe) line the pueblo architecture of the Inn at Loretto. This is the iconic Santa Fe Christmas shot, but I just took it with my iPhone, so it’s not all it could be. My hands were cold!
Some friends met us at the gallery at closing time last evening, and we went together to the Plaza Cafe, which has been there on the Plaza for more than 60 years. It was warm and crowded with locals, and we had a great little dinner – looking out the windows at the Plaza . . .
The city has outdone itself this year . . .
A crisp walk after dinner, and then home, because the fur children were waiting to hang their stockings, or maybe for their dinner.
Today is about RELAX!!!!
All my best wishes to all of you.
