Happy Sunday, everyone!

I’m doing a rare Sunday post to share with you that after the success of my Santa Fe Getaway video, I decided it was about time for me to visit another FAB city here in New Mexico … and I couldn’t think of better place to travel to than Taos, New Mexico.   Now, I’ve been to Taos many times but this time I did it different ~ THIS time, I did it right!

And I’m super excited to tell you that I captured all the FABness of this trip, and of Taos, so that you could enjoy it, too.  So, please just click on the arrow below to see for yourself and then be sure to come on back so I tell you all about it.

Ok ~ so I did two really important things right on my 3 days excursion to Taos.

The first thing that I did that was right was to stay at the El Monte Sagrado Living Resort & Spa. Everything about this resort is gorge from the grounds, to the salt water pool and The Living Spa to the food and Anaconda Bar ~ but I was especially thrilled to lay my head down at night in the Spain Global Room … next time I come here I plan to stay in the Japan Global Room.  #Swoon

The other thing that I did that was right, and seriously ~ this just took everything up to a whole new level, was to connect with Angelisa Espinoza, owner and guide of Heritage Inspirations, LLC.  It is Heritage Inspirations (H.I.) mission to provide YOU, dear traveler and blog  follower, with an inspirational experience that elevates your sensations, palate and spiritual encounters when you visit the Land of Enchantment.

It was H.I. who took me to out on the best hiking trails of La Vista Verde Trail and to THE best spot to view the spectacular Rio Grande Gorge.

It was H.I. who arranged a very special side trip to Chimayó, New Mexico where I was able to spend time at the El Santuario de Chimayó and, of course, purchased some of the famous Chimayó chile … and then took me for a fun stop at Vivác Winery.

And it was H.I. who created a “never to be forgotten” tamale making class for me, as well as an amazing visit to the beautiful Taos Pueblo where, as you saw, I even made a dreamcatcher.  *** Thank you, Heritage Inspirations for such a wonderful experience!

I was, however, able to spend lots of time on my own so I took full advantage of El Monte Sagrado’s fine amenities, as well as  …

… ventured into town. The only museum I had not visited in Taos before was the Millicent Rogers Museum. I was so glad I treated myself to some time there ~ she, her life and her collections are/were fascinating.

And the last thing I knew that I had to do before leaving Taos was to swing by the hottest chocolate spot in town, chokolá bean to bar#LifeIsGood

So, friends, what do you think?  Is Taos fab or what? Perhaps the next time you’re honey asks  Where should we travel to next? … you’ll find yourself saying   Take Me To Taos!
