Among the top-rated tourist destinations in New Mexico is the mountain village of Ruidoso, nestled within the Lincoln National Forrest topping the Sierra Blanca and Sacramento mountain ranges.
The Tribal resort Ski Apache has blessed the village's awesome setting with tourism, helping its commercial downtown flourish.
But just walking down Ruidoso's downtown is a treat in itself, so you most definitely do not need to be a skiing fan in order to come and spend an awesome time.
As a local explorer, I believe that the Christmas season is the best time to come visit Ruidoso and get a full experience of what this gorgeous mountain village is all about.
The snow is awesome, but Ruidoso is about so much more!
So much so that vacation homes here are common because once visitors experience Ruidoso, they make up their minds to spend here all the rest of their winters.
But not every visitor can afford a second home, so those who can't fill all the vacation rentals around and come every winter nonetheless.
Sounds awesome? I know. Because it really is, and it's not just me.
I dreamed of Scotland last night. I had a wee cottage with a fire and my dried herbs hanging from the ceiling, a cozy nook with all of my books and a sweet pup to walk the hills with near some water. It was an indescribable feeling of content as I looked out on a rolling land just like this. I’ve never been anywhere that spoke to my soul like this, and it’s my total intention to end up there. #speakyourheart
Мій перший тиждень в Парижі — 7 липня 2011 року ... Випадково натрапила на свої старі фото і чомусь захотілось одненьке запостити.. 😏
Якось зовсім недавно згадувала дитинство, свої мрії, захоплення, якісь плани на життя і зрозуміла, що тоді я була більш цілеспрямована і позитивно налаштована, ніж буваю тепер.. 😅 Пригадала момент перед телевізором «берізка», якийсь показ мод чи що (детально картину відновити не можу, але знаю точно, що це було про Париж) і себе, дев’ятирічну, з альбомом для малювання, купою розкладених малюнків навколо і фразу : «Мам, колись я житиму в Парижі, ось побачиш !» На що мама посміхнулась і відповіла, що мабуть це не реально. І от, я в Парижі, мама !!! Хто б міг подумати ! Життя неймовірне, чи не так ? 😉 Я в тому місті, яке багато хто не любить, мало того — ненавидить, а я обожнюю ! Бо, саме в цьому місці, незважаючи на все, через що мені тут довелося пройти і загалом у моєму житті, саме в цей момент я ЩАСЛИВА, з абсолютним правом обирати, дихати вільно і на повну силу, подорожувати, любити, з вдячністю брати від життя все, що дається !!! Важливо — знати, чого ти хочеш, втілювати свої бажання в реальність та вміти насолоджуватися найменшими дрібничками. Мрії таки збуваються !!! Дякую тому, хто їх здійснює для мене і усім, хто напротязі цих семи років був поряд, пліч-о-пліч зі мною !!! ❤️😘☀️

Head to the link in my profile to learn why you need them!! #ad#swissewellness#destinationhappiness
OH MY OVARIES!! ❤❤❤❤ Quinn, Indie, Hudson & Molly - 12 weeks new.
There is a 1 in 700,000 chance of conceiving natural quads, and the MacDonald family in New Zealand have been blessed with a set of their very own.
Photographer Cassandra from @hazelandcassphotography has captured the most beautiful photos of these quads.
To bring her vision to life she needed four babies (tick), four assistants, baby shushers, 27 bunches of fresh flowers, a handmade wreath and a custom wooden bed (made by her Dad). During the 7.5 hour shoot there were 13 nappy changes, nine bottles, numerous burps and farts and she managed to only get vomited on twice… totally worth it.

A beautiful Mumma of 5 who is on the journey of a lifetime. Bless. ❤
I absolutely love this quote! This is something that I really have to keep in mind especially around finals which is coming up for most people. I ALWAYS become so stressed about finals and over work my brain. I have learned to take breaks and that has helped a lot! It is not easy as sometimes I am in a groove and just want to continue, but it keeps you from getting burnt out. Try taking breaks when studying or doing homework, it might change your whole viewpoint on it. Just simply set a timer for 30 minutes (or however long) and work as hard as you can, but as soon as that timer goes off take a 10 minute break! Have a great sleep everyone! #destinationhappiness
Remember, you do not owe an explanation to anybody that makes you feel like a more negative/toxic person! -
Hello! Let’s go out and get our check lists done, make a positive impact on other people, and focus on your goals! As you go about today, I challenge you to give one person a compliment. When you give a compliment it has been scientifically proven to immediately boost someone’s mood. I know when I get a compliment I am instantly in a better mood and have a better day. So why not go out and give a simple compliment that takes less than 5 seconds, 5 seconds that could make someone’s whole day! Do it! Have an amazing day and remember happiness is not immediate it takes awhile, but keep working towards it💕 #destinationhappiness
When thinking about your worries think, is it something that is in my control or out of my control? Then determine if it is something that should truly be worried about.
A HUGE thing that has taken a big amount of stress off of me is having a proper budget. Although I am only a high school student I do pay for majority of what I have (my phone bill, car payment, car insurance, gas, and extras). I have had a job since March when I turned 16 and up until now I have not had a proper budget. Each month I would be stressing about whether I would have enough money for this bill or that bill, was I spending too much money? Overall, a huge component of my anxiety I could assume was caused by money and not handling my money properly. Always really think hard about anything that could be causing you stress/anxiety and try to eliminate those things. I hope YOU have a fantastic day!! #destinationhappiness
Can you believe that there are 21 more working days left of the year? 2018 was a rollercoaster. It was a ride and a half. 2018 was a year of learning about myself and where I need to work on myself more than anything else. Have you started reflecting yet? Have you started thinking about what you want to achieve in 2019, and how you’re going to turn those dreams into your reality? Wake up & work on your plan daily. Making things happen, step by step 🌱✨ Cannot wait for what is to come #goaldigger#bringon2019#holidaycountdown#wednesdaymotivation

🚨 Stop scrolling for a hot sec 🚨+ Pause to think of 3 things that you’re grateful for in this moment. For me it’s physical strength + health, a warm home + full belly, and friends + fam that shine so bright it’s hard not to feel shimmery around them✨ And still so thankful for a day filled with like-minded people who motivated me to try new things (like acro + aerial yoga!) (shoutout @maxandlizacro + @airealyoga) → Also apparently it’s #NationalKindnessDay so spread those good vibes to the cuties around you 🥰
