Grace in Small Things -- Day 89

Sorry for the absence from my blog again (I'm sure you all were devastated). I went to New Mexico this week with my boyfriend to visit his family since we had an unexpected vacation from school and I did not have internet access.


We had a wonderful trip! Pictures to come soon.

3. A day of fun with his cousin's awesome kids. I wanted to bring one home with me. A-dorable.
4. Beautiful scenery -- love the blue mountains
