Home is where the Heart is | Travel Blog | Mesilla + Las Cruces, New Mexico

Everyone's hometown holds a special place in their heart; even if you couldn't wait to leave, there is just something about home that reaches out to you. I left New Mexico when I was seventeen, and now every time I return home, all I want to do is soak it all in. The colorful culture of my border hometown, the dramatic Organ Mountains, and the vast stretches of desert are always on my mind, and someday I hope to live in a town equally as beautiful. Things in Las Cruces have changed, that's for certain, but the quiet town of Mesilla remains largely unchanged, as do the mountains.
