72 Hours in New Mexico & West Texas: Video Diary

My final post for this New Mexico and West Texas trip is my video diary. I had a lot of fun putting this one together because the footage was better than usual, which I owe to the amazing weather and beautiful blue skies we were graced with.
This isn't necessarily a trip I would repeat, not because it wasn't wonderful but because I think I saw all that I needed to see from these towns. However, I love reliving the trip through video.

24 Hours in Texas: Marfa & El Paso

Monday morning we woke up really early, like 5AM early, because we had to. We were driving to Marfa for a tour which started at 11:00 but we were losing an hour due to a time zone change.
We took advantage of the kitchenette one last time and made some egg and sausage croissant sandwiches.

48 Hours in New Mexico: Day 2 | White Sands

On Saturday morning, we woke up with the sun. Because of the time difference, it was easy to get up and get ready. Despite the previous evening's lightheadedness debacle, we were feeling pretty good.
Our original plans for breakfast were thwarted when we found out that the restaurant was closed on Sundays. However, it worked out because we ended up at a really delicious spot.

48 Hours in New Mexico: Day 1 | Santa Fe

This trip was the exact refreshment I needed. January was a pretty boring month and it was difficult to get back into work mode after a leisurely winter break. I was looking forward to warmer weather, endless sunshine, desert landscape, and getting back to nature.

It was a fantastic long weekend getaway and I highly recommend a visit to this region of the country. It's quiet, beautiful, and understated.
I left work midday on Friday so I could catch a train into the city and meet up with D. Then we hopped on the subway to we could grab the Airtran to JFK.

Madison Mud: Beginner's Session

Just before Thanksgiving, my sister and I signed up to do a pottery wheel class at Madison Mud. My coworker did the early fall session and loved it and brought in some of her pieces. The mugs she'd made were so gorgeous and she was raving about it so much that I decided that I had to give it a go too.

Mel, the owner and one of the teachers, is an amazing lady. She's really business-minded (she owns multiple businesses), she's a crazy talented potter, she's smart, she's funny, and she's really sweet.
The class is lots of fun and you really learn how to make usable, functional, beautiful pieces. I wanted to share some photos I took throughout the classes. Obviously I couldn't take as many photos as I wanted because 90% of the time I was soaked in clay, but I did as much as I could.
