Mountain Mary's is located in the small town of Eagle River, in the pristine Eagle Glacier Valley of the 495,000 acre, Chugach State Park in South Central Alaska.
Mountain Mary's is a labor of love. Love of herbs, nature and a more natural healthy life. MM's started in a kitchen 17 or so years ago, morphed into a store front and back to the home shop that it is today.

Sixth Picture Meme

the definition of meme given by "a cultural unit (an idea or value or pattern of behavior) that is passed from one person to another by non-genetic means (as by imitation)."

The rules of this meme are:
1.Go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your pictures
2.Go to the 6th Folder, then pick the 6th picture in that folder
3.Post that picture on your blog and tell the story that goes along with the picture.
4.Tag 6 other people that you know or don’t know to do the same thing and leave a comment on their blog or an e-mail letting them know you chose them.

I was tagged for this meme by Cindy Jones at Sagescript Institute & Colorado Aromatics. Since all my pictures are in one giant file :O) I just chose the 6th picture.

This photo is of my son Alex and his friend Anthony (Anthonini). WE are a foster home and this picture was taken the first night Nini was at our home. It's hard to tell, because his eyes are covered, that he is terrified. He began his day boarding an airplane form his native village and ended it at our house. He and Alex formed an instant bond (they were already sharing pj's) which I believe made life at our house much easier for Nini. Even though Anthony has since been adopted, and has a family of his own:O) We still miss him(it's been almost 3 years now. Alex askes about him frequently and wants his brother Anthonini back.

I tagged these people to play meme with me:
Robbie Cardenas (my friend)
Robbie Pull (my friend)
Jennifer at (also my friend)


  1. I posted mine here:

    Thanks! It was lots of fun!!

  2. Mary, How cute! They are adorable. I'm glad you were able to be there for little Nini. And it was nice he had a little friend in Alex too. What a special picture. I will do this tag probably tomorrow since I am at work now.

  3. Guess I should check my blog(s) closer :O) LOL
    I just figured out there were messages on some of my psots! LOL Can I claim blondness? Nah! don't like that.

  4. Amy..the hair! LOL It's great! Someday we'll have to compare crazy hair pics of our kids :O) When Annie's day car has "crazy hair" day..I just don;t do anything with her's! I've seen Alex's stand straight up like a troll doll on ocassion! Love it!

  5. Katrina, your picture looks like I expected you too :O) Your 6th pic of your family camp
    o like mine :O) We also love camping, however we retired our tent last summer (until the kids are bigger) and bought a Vintage camper (I'll post pics later). It's much cooler here during camping season so even in the summer, the fire is often for heat, but more often for bug control! Anyway, you can't go camping with out a campfire! It's just not right! Peace to you and yours :O)
