So, why is this blog called "Elephant Droppings"? It's not as bad as it sounds. In my husband Jake's past life, he gave everyone he knew nicknames, and a majority of the time, they were animal names. Jake is a spider because he liked to rock climb (again, a past life activity). When he met me, he was always in complete amazement at my great memory, so my nickname "Elephant" was born. It has nothing to do with the color of my skin, the size of my ears, or my weight, for those of you wondering.
