When we drove across the dusty oil fields of Texas into New Mexico, our expectations were low. We didn’t want much more from this state than a relief from the Texas weather and change of scenery. Yet, as we were immersed in the unique landscapes, rich culture and interesting people, we felt our minds change and our hearts grow. It didn’t take long for us to become completely enamored with and inspired by New Mexico. And that tingle of magic still remains, long after we’ve shaken the last pieces of sand off our shoes.
