College Days



Not really sure when these were taken, besides it was with Elise Carlin Blatter.  She was one of my favorite college roommates.  I learned a lot from her. I probably shouldn’t say this but the first time I met her she was RUNNING to the bathroom… I will never look at magnesium citrate  the same.

Too many memories…


I really do not think there is such a thing BUT I look back  at all the photos on my cell phone memory card and want to write them all down before I forget.

Look at how beautiful Ashlee is!!! This is the day after Ethan was born. Ashlee had her first sleepover with me AND away from her mommy. I remember pulling out of the hospital parking lot and in the saddest  little voice Ashlee tearfully said, “Mommy?” It was so sad I cried too. Ashlee did go to work with me for a little bit before we went to meet Ethan.

We slept in the Covington house back living room. I hardly slept all night because every five minutes I was checking to see if Ashlee was breathing. It was a nerve-wracking night. Ashlee did wake me up one time with “Wolfie” in her arms growling at me like a bear that she was scared. I couldn’t figure out why until I heard my roommate in the front room snoring…. SHE SOUNDED LIKE A BEAR.

I have a huge soft spot in my heart for Ashlee. I alway hear about this tremendous amount of love a mother has for their newborn children. I can only imagine how strong it is because my love for my nieces and nephews is extremely strong.
