I just got back from an amazing conference, this year held at a resort outside Albuquerque.
While the desert has its beauty, I am very thrilled to be back to Santa Cruz weather and the lovely ocean breeze. All that dry weather made my skin feel horrible, dried out my contacts and even gave me a nosebleed! I guess you probably get used to it eventually, but it definitely made me appreciate the climate here even more.
I’m also feeling very appreciative to not being dealing with Sandy, and keeping my fingers crossed for the safety of my loved ones and everyone else back east.
