It's Move-In Day, 2015. I walked through the doorway of my room in Stambaugh, and stood there, completely floored. Why? Because my dorm looked simply amazing. Let’s look at the layout. (And that tile!)
The last night before I left, Carolyn and I took a bus into Nashville and walked along the pedestrian bridge (it’s beautiful!)
