Find a Penny, pick it up and all the day you'll have good luck.

When Kev and I were dating, we visited Aspen, Colorado a couple of times with a close friend of ours (who grew up in the area). Those trips were always so much fun, even when Kev and I had to ride in the back of the Titan truck with Burt the chocolate lab and Maddie the wiggle worm.

Later in our relationship, we were attending church together and one of the speakers referred to her granddaughter named Aspen. I leaned over to Kev and asked him what he thinks of the name for the little girl I hoped we'd have some day.

We've been holding onto the name since then (probably about four years) and it's surreal that it now belongs to a little person. Forget the fact that I call her "Maddie" half the time... she'll eventually learn to respond to at least one of the names I throw out there.

What I'm really looking forward to is the day that Kev can flop little Aspen around and chant "Find a Penny, pick her up and all the day you'll have good luck!" I know it'll drive her crazy when her dad teases her like that. It's going to be the BEST.
