Why Today is a Special Day

Well, after three and a half years of hard work and dedication... I am a college graduate! I am absolutely ecstatic and called Mama Bird and J screeching with excitement.

This is Bubba and I at my high school graduation... Please excuse the ridiculous hair color... 
I decided that a fun way to celebrate (since no one else I know is graduating and I have work tomorrow morning) I ran a "victory lap" around the campus I once lived on and ran around four times a week. It was an easy four miles in the nice spring sun, but I couldn't help thinking about all the memories of my time there.

J and I at his college graduation. I'm not walking in mine so this is as close as I'll get! 
In college I met my dear J. I rushed a sorority full of silly sisters I truly cherish. I took up running (and am now addicted). I learned to cook (all by myself). I figured out how far a dollar truly can stretch. I wrote more papers than seemingly possible. I made friends I will never forget -some for good reasons and others for their bizarreness!

What a happy day to be done, more time for my blog, for work (thankfully I have a job) and for my family!
