Happy Birthday New Mexico! 100 years of Statehood..
New Mexico was admitted to the union 100 years ago today, on January 6, 1912, as the 47th state.
When John and I moved here in 1970, New Mexico had already been a state for 58 years. We fell in love with this land of enchantment, and dreamed for 38 more years of returning here to live. In 2008, we made our dream come true, and New Mexico became our adopted home by choice. I have never been disappointed one single time about our decision to move to this state - it turned out to be far better than we even dreamed it would be.
HAPPY STATEHOOD, NEW MEXICO!
