Let me begin by introducing myself.  My name is Barbara.  In my previous life, I practiced law and traversed the world looking for my next great adventure.  Well, I have since found my greatest adventure yet – I’m a mother to my darling daughter and son and married to a rancher!  We live on a beautiful ranch in the heart of New Mexico.  Albeit we’re more than a hundred miles from the nearest city (my qualifications for a city include a town possessing both a grocery store and a pharmacy), I’ve been here nearly eight years and wouldn’t change a thing.  That being said, my city girl ways are still very much a part of who I am.  I love beauty products, shopping, and home decorating, all of which I explore in delicious detail on my little corner of the internet.

Welcome to Belle Abode!!!

I hope we can all become great friends and comrades on this wonderful adventure we call life.

xoxo Barbara
