A ridiculous amount of coffee was consumed in the process of building this project. Add some fuel if you'd like to keep me going!
Santa Fe, New Mexico
Santa Fe has become one of my all time favorite cities; with its beautiful mountain views, adobe architecture and amazing food, it is a place I think everyone should experience at least once.
Below is a list of what has become my favorite stops and scenes. I hope you love this adorable town as much as I do.
In the middle of downtown Santa Fe sits the Santa Fe Plaza.
The Plaza is over 400 years old and surrounded by gorgeous adobe architecture, shops museums, restaurants, Indian and Spanish markets, streets food, and other annual events and community gatherings. If you have limited time in Santa Fe, this is the place to go.
You can spend an entire day roaming the streets and have a real cultural experience.
San Marco’s Cafe and feed store is located half a hour South West of downtown Santa Fe.
This farm to table cafe is one of my all time favorites! From its out of town, quiet location to the roaming peacocks and outback bird aviary, this cafe stars 5+ in my book not just for the amazing food but also for its all around experience.
Do be aware the cafe closes at 6pm on weekdays and 2pm on weekends.

in 1872 construction began for the Loretto Chapel.
When the architect suddenly died however, before the chapel was finished the builders suddenly realize that it was lacking any type of stairwell up to the choir loft. Due to the chapel small size a standard staircase would have been too large and the builders were at a loss of what to do. Needing a way to get up to the choir loft, the nuns prayed for nine days straight. On the 10th day a stranger appeared at the door, and told the nuns that he would build the staircase but that he needed total privacy. He then locked himself in the chapel for 3 months, before revealing the beautiful stair case completely hand carved from non-native wood.
Iconik coffee is located just southwest of downtown Santa Fe. The shop is a beautiful lofted space, filled with local art and home roasted aromas. The shop also features a small selection of wine and beer as well as breakfast, sandwiches, salads and tapas.
