My parents sent me these tulips. First, having them around brings back all the giddy feelings of spring and I love it (I forget that there are actual separate seasons down here in southern California) Second, they remind me that I no longer have an incredible burden hanging over my head because I officially graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree! I'm a little hesitant to even mention it. I don't want it it to be a big deal because we left BYU almost 3 years ago when I had a year to finish and it's taken me this long to finally finish. But I'm done. No more nights staying up until 2:00am to finish my papers. No more turning down reading books or working on fun projects because the little voice in my head would tell me I should be working on my class. Free at last!
So to celebrate, Matt took me to the Melting Pot. It was so much fun to be served an amazing four-course meal without keeping a 15 month old in check, while my husband flirted with me and we dreamed about our future plans. Thanks for helping me celebrate, Matt. Happy graduation to me and happy spring to everyone!
Oh...Madeline dropped a fruit snack in the vase. That's what she's pointing to in the picture.
