When we were in the middle of a project-I salvaged this board
and drew the mountain shape on the top and had my then 17 year old
Third, cut it out. I wanted to create a piece of NM history for my
home that shared without even saying, that for me~NM and all her
history begins with the majestic mountains in her borders.
This timeline was an old board, paints, paper, permanent marker
and glue...with a bit of research from me to document each milestone.
I even added the year that the farm family arrived in NM, as that year
was the beginning of our reinventing ourselves from semi-suburbanites
to a farm family!
I thought I would share some of my favorite photos of my mountain.
At different times of the day, and times in the year, she looks
Sometimes it looks so green and misty.
Other times the mountain and the sky complete each other in beauty.
Mind you, we do have some incredible wind storms.
And the mountain sees snow every year...
even if we only see snow in the canyon every four or five years.
She is who I bid farewell to as I leave the farm gate.

And she wakes me each and every day.
I love the mountains. I am thankful and think of the Creator and His
handiwork each and every time I look about the farm.
