It’s been about a month since I flew to El Paso to visit my sister and her husband. Her husband is in the army and is currently stationed in Fort Bliss, so she moved down with him. It’s definitely been hard having her so far away, but at least it’s temporary!

After a 3 hour flight to Houston, and another hour and a half flight to El Paso, I had arrived! I  stayed with my sister at their apartment for 5 days, and spent those days exploring their new temporary home in the desert. I am not a huge fan of the heat, so being in hundred degree weather was not my favorite although there is no humidity so that makes a huge difference in comfort level! El Paso is so unique though, and so pretty. I probably wouldn’t ever choose to live there, but it was a lot of fun to visit for the week.

We hiked, swam, explored the army base, tried some new restaurants, and checked out a huge local country bar called Little Bit of Texas. It was a great week and even greater to spend time with my sister. I probably never would’ve even visited El Paso if she hadn’t lived there, so it was a really neat experience!

She’s coming back up to Wisconsin for 3 weeks in September for my brother’s wedding, and I can’t wait to see her!

Cheers to the freakin’ weekend!
