Luck comes with Higher Elevation

While vacationing in New Mexico this past week, I received an email from the woman who used to own our property (I've only been waiting two months now)... I smiled so big, I probably scared some of the onlookers wiating for their 15 minutes of computer time in the Santa Fe Public Library. She received one of my many letters that I sent out asking for her cooperation in this clouded title effort. I didn't exactly know where she lived but one of my letters were forwarded to her correct address. It was a brief response but all that I needed. I was losing hope. The man (ex-husband had passed away and she is living in another state entirely). Hopefully, within a week or two I will have the necessary quitclaim deed to move forward, or will at least be working on it with her.
Yes, I decided to go on vacation. The house project was going nowhere fast and an opportunity to take a road trip with two of my best friends from high school and vacation in Santa Fe just sounded too good to pass up. It was my first time in Santa Fe. It was beautiful, amazing, relaxing, interesting, fun, artistic, etc. I could definately make it a once a year kinda trip.
So, things are looking up. I will post again shortly and show you a picture of my favorite piece of art I brought back from Santa Fe (for the house of course).
