Over the holiday break, the boys and I went on a road trip from California to Texas to celebrate Christmas with Cliff’s family. It was my first road trip and I would do it again, but maybe not too soon. We stopped at White Sands National Park in New Mexico. It was one of the most beautiful places, possibly the most, I have ever visited. Being there during winter, it felt like I was walking on snow (that’s how white the sand was!) minus the wetness. Juno was all smiles there too. Seriously, when is he not? I couldn’t stop staring at the dunes of gypsum sand sparkling against the sunlight. Watching the sunset there with my guy and pup definitely sweetened my 2012.
