Ashley has many qualities I admire. First of all, she is a bomb of creativity. She is always thinking of things to do. Just looking at her you can see her brain working on her next project. Her frugality is just more fuel for her creative spirit. "What can we do with these" she'll say about something everyone else would regard as rubbish. Or, "We can make that!" when she sees something that is overpriced. She is also a great instigator, planning activities, and she follows through. Yes, reliable would be the proper adjective for Ashley. All of these attributes come together in a most perfect union to create the incredible mother that she is. Eli, though not even one, is one lucky kid. I can already tell.
Happy Birthday, Ash!
