College kids are heading back. Oh the memories.

I went to a great school, James Madison, in the mountains of VA. I met many great friends and my husband there. The best time of year in college was when the summer ended and school was getting ready to begin. Fall was in the air.

My freshman year was spent here. Hillside Hall. Great dorm and it had air conditioning which is always a plus. Many late night fire drills due to stupid girls burning popcorn in the microwave happened in this building. One time I was too drunk to find my other slipper and had to stand in the snow with only one on at 3 am until the fire drill was over. It was flippin lovely!

This is the gym called UREC. It is huge. I have many memories there of attempting to work out. HA!

This is called the "Kissing Rock". The legend basically is kiss on it and be together forever. I think every college has one of these legends. Of course Jason and I kissed here. So far so good!

Our football field. I spent many Saturdays here in the fall. Many of which I do not remember due to too much pregaming!

Beautiful Wilson Hall and the Quad. Fall days are the best on the quad. Laying around pretending to study.

Our mascot was the Duke Dog. Purple and gold! I still sport it.

I enjoyed my college days, a little too much sometimes. However, I grew up a lot at JMU. It was a placed I called home for 4 years. I cherish my memories and hope one day my child will get to experience the greatness that attending a university holds.
