New Mexico was a state that might have deserved a trip just for a photo, but earned the confidence of a weekend jaunt for some of its best residents, both sets of new parents.
My fiancee and I both have friends from way back when (from college and high school, respectively) who live with their husbands in New Mexico with boys lucky to have them as parents.
I stayed with one of those couples, dined with both (and the kiddos), and explored Albuquerque on my short visit. Some day, I want to get back to the White Sands National Monument, and to Santa Fe. (Santa Fe is another place I'd love to live someday.)
