a house to hug

I admit, I was neutral at first. But then, after living in Albuquerque for a few years, the adobe house really grew on me. It's just.... so.... warm. It's inviting. It has personality and charm without being overbearing. When a petite adobe house is nestled in the high desert mountains, it makes for a wonderful home home.


(This is not my house.... but I wouldn't mind living in it... minus the lounging flamingos.)

When paired with the scent of piƱon pine, it's perfect. Ahhh.

all the pretty birdies

When it comes to the winged kind, our backyard is mostly populated with morning doves and pigeons. Every now and then, we see a finch. This weekend, Justin and I decided to encourage the finches to spend more time in our yard.


They were wary at first, but the house finches began to test the waters. If you build it, he will come....


...and then they were swooping in from everywhere! Yay!

Soon enough, they were acting like they owned the place.

Now we're trying to lure in the gold finches. :)
