Carson stocked up on some southwesternware at the thrift store

Now that we are in New Mexico, just days from the wedding, and several members of the wedding party have arrived, things are getting really REAL!!!  There is still much to be done, but here are some quick snapshots taken between all the cleaning, organizing, and decorating that's being done...

My maid of honor, Ali, got here early to do all the flowers for the wedding, using succulents, air plants, veronica, freesia, dusty miller, and blue thistle.

Colin brought this highly-covered Pliny the Elder, a double IPA from Russian River Brewing Co, meant to be enjoyed as soon after bottling as possible

I snapped this photo of the historic San Felipe church during a run into Old Town Albuquerque for some gifts and jewelry repair
