un grandes partido y diseño grandes domingo

Well the wedding came and went. It seemed sooo long and so short all at the same time. I somehow became (who am I kidding? I deemed myself) official snap shot taker. We left at 10:00 pm, after the toasts were made and the cake was cut, only because the boy had fallen fast asleep in our arms. He was covered in dirt from head to foot and plum tuckered out from hours of play. All I can say is, WOW, those Mexicans sure can throw a party.

Today is my 14th wedding anniversary. We really, really wanted to go to the Santa Fe Indian Market. It is a once a year event that brings in thousands of Native American artist. I was so excited to meet some of the artist that I have admired. But it was not to be, not for this year at least. We literally couldn't find a flight into Santa Fe on any airline that weekend. So, we are already planning for next year.

In the meantime, we are both talking about getting a Nora Bill bracelet. Which leads me into my pick for Design Sunday.

Nora Bill and her husband, Emerson, live near Santa Fe. The Bill family is very well known throughout the Southwest. Nora's style is very distinguishable. She uses very heavy gauge silver and a cold press technique to create her amazing bracelets. I am so bummed that we aren't able to go to the market this year. I am positive she would be there. I just want to stand in the corner of her studio for one afternoon and watch her work.

Maybe someday I'll just get in my car, drive to her house and knock on her door. Would that be weird? Oh well, I'm already known as "Señora Blanca Loca" (Crazy White Lady) in Rosa's family. Evidently they aren't accustomed to my paparazzi style of photo taking.

That's right, Mexicans know how to party! (I like to include myself in that) Your blog made me miss my mexican grandma. I can't wait to see her in August. You would love her. Oh and I don't know why, but the last few weeks I have decided to take it upon myself to find you a baby. I have been thinking about you a lot lately and what I can do. Even if praying is all I can do, I am determined you and Ben's little family will grow.
