Honeymoon: Our Trip Day 1

Tyler and I wanted to keep our honeymoon low cost, still get out of the state, and be a little bit off the beaten honeymoon path (i.e. the beach/cruise/resort).  We decided to go to Santa Fe - not too far, cool weather, high altitude, historic city and lots of nearby hiking opportunities.

Tyler found a nice little VRBO casita really close to Santa Fe, but a few miles away in the mountains.  Every evening we got to see beautiful sunsets, along with some little hummingbirds that came over the front porch.  It was close enough to town that we didn't feel bad spending the gas to drive there once a day for a meal.

Hint to some of you DIY brides, let your guy plan the honeymoon.  They care much more about that part anyway, and it will take some of the stress away from you.

Here are a few pictures from the beginning of our trip:

On our way out, we stopped by the courthouse to submit the marriage certificate so we'd be official!

I brought a couple signs I'd made for my photobooth along for the ride.  We got to take some fun pictures with them!  (As a side note, I'm selling several of my photobooth works on my Etsy Shop!)

Pictures at the NM border with long hair and lots of wind turn out...well, weird.

More weird hair...

Our first meal in Santa Fe at Casa Chimayo!

For dinner, Tyler and I shared Pollo En Molé Rojo and Blue Corn Enchiladas.
And may I suggest their coffee?  Amazing.  (Not your regular coffee).

After dinner.

The nice owner of our VRBO left us coffee, tea and wine for our stay!
