nicolaus and i are ditching work and school and responsibility for the next week. we road tripped down to albuquerque last night to visit my sister and her cute family. we got here this morning and have had a full day of playing with babies and dogs, basking in the afternoon sunshine (65 degrees has never felt warmer), eeating delicious food and napping. needless to say, it's been the best kind of day and i'm looking forward to a few a more exactly like it :)
