here's to...

- late nights in the library
- restless hours of group work
- tripping down the granite stairs in the tanner, ouch!
- my jr. core besties, including the wonderful mr.
- exploring every square inch of rome, venice & torino (aka the puffy cheeks era)
- reading, reading, and still having more to read
- running on a few hours sleep for days at a time
- king henry, liberty square, crestwood & branbury
- the most unproductive summers of my life
- but mostly, here's to all of my friends and the good times we've had at the Y.

{my toast to you, fellow bloggers}

friday night wrapped up my college experience. i got a little choked up when the procession started and i was walking onto the stage with the organ playing the infamous graduation tune. don't you worry--it took just a split second for me to snap out of it.

the exercises were long, really long. i sat in my uncomfortable chair for 3 full hours, occasionally turning around to look at the audience for a change of scenery. every time i did, i saw people by the dozens hitting the doors. apparently i'm not the only one who thought calling 1,000 graduates by name was a little much for one sitting. but c'mon people, where's your class?

janeen used her photography skills and captured me and the mr. in our caps and gowns.

{the people who made it all possible. a big thank you from me to you.}

I cannot believe it has ended! I mean, I can because of what we just sat through on Friday and the endless hours of studying, etc., but you know what I mean. I'm so glad we're friend Candach-e.
