Every other year several cousins from Texas, Oklahoma, and California gather to renew family relationships. This year we met in Santa Fe at the Adobe Star Inn and had a wonderful time. We were the only group at the Inn and had the run of the place. It felt as if we were in someone's home without having the responsibility of food and cleanup. Aside from the homey and comfortable feel, my most memorable experience was Valerie, the inn keeper. She met us when we arrived and made us feel very welcome and checked on us frequently. We had a couple of problems, one cousin with an illness, which Valerie helped us with immediately. I can't brag on her enough. Thank you, Valerie, for going above and beyond, providing us with a wonderful experience. I will definitely visit again.
