Less then 1 Week to go!
People in my real life know, and those who really pay attention here, that I never stepped foot on campus at Ashford. It was really only a University that allowed me to finish my BA while being a military wife thousands of miles away. I found out last fall that MacMurray College considers me an alum and even though my degree won't be from there, I still consider it "my college." It was where I lived in dorms, made friends for life, had fantastic professors that are now friends, joined a sorority and did a whole lot of fun stuff (and stupid stuff, but let's not dwell on that.) Still....I am grateful to Ashford. They made it simple for a Navy wife in Hawaii (and WA) to finish school at her own pace.
I got the email saying I can order my cap & gown today that I will wear when I walk across a stage in Iowa on a campus I am only seeing for the first time.
So as surreal as it is, thank you Ashford. Thank you MacMurray! Mostly thank you Mom and Avery.
To my Oma up in heaven, I am finally there.
