We sat at an upstairs table right out side our room at The Old Taos Inn. This was one of the best weekends ever. <3
Friday night started it off with friends coming over for a wonderful dinner we made and shared finished off with apple eiswine. Then Crys* and I exchanged valentines gifts. I got chocolate and my very own KINDLE!!!!!!!!!! She got....... a prize a night through the week and stuff I'm not allowed to talk about in public. But she liked 'em.
Then we slept in for a little bit Saturday morning. Got up and motivated after coffee and headed down through Espanola toward the Black Mesa Winery. We stopped at JoAnn's in Espanola for brunch. They have the best selection for vegetarians around, and breakfast goes all day! Then it was on to the winery for an open barrel tasting. It was fun. Supposedly you pay $10 and do the barrel taste, then inside it's $7 for wine tasting on stuff already bottled. The nice man there, Mike, let us taste all 13 and told us to keep the glasses :D. There's nice people everywhere if you let 'em be themselves.
From there we went on to Taos where we checked into the Old Taos Inn and headed over to Eske's, a restaurant that Crys* loves. We had a couple beers with our fab dinner and then headed back to the hotel for a bottle of wine on a private deck overlooking the live music playing below. Crys* brought these really fun valentines glasses and it was wonderful.
Slept in a little the next morning and went to Michael's for breakfast (which was wonderful too!) and then we trucked on home. Here we cleaned and cut wood and worked on the place a bit. Now watching some TV and relaxing. Life is good.
