My favorite state is celebrating it’s 100th birthday! 100 years ago today, New Mexico became the 47th state in the Union. I think to celebrate I should make enchiladas for supper. 🙂
My Mom’s family moved from Texas to New Mexico before it was a state, back in the early 1900s. I wonder how they celebrated statehood? I’m sure it was a very big deal to them. The house my great grandmother lived in was the first house in Dexter (or so I was always told) and my grandfather’s parents owned a house in Roswell. It’s gone now, there is a commercial property on the land. But my Mother grew up there, and although I haven’t gotten to live there in years, New Mexico is home to me. I travel back every chance I get.
If you’ve never visited, you should. It truly is the Land of Enchantment!
