Time Flies

I cannot believe that it has been an entire month since I graduated from James Madison University. It is truly amazing how time flies; especially 4 years of college. But even post-college, things have not slowed down! In an effort to savor the moment, here are some more photos from that great day! 

 Daddy and Mother! 

Daddy! I wore a very old Lilly dress (it had the white tag with the black "Lilly") because I wanted to be absolutely sure that no one would have the same dress as me and it worked... lots of girls were in Lilly and I saw a lot of repeats but no one had on the dress that I wore. I actually had never worn the dress before; It was my first ever eBay purchase. I searched high and low for a Lilly dress that I loved that was also old enough that no one else would have it.


At one point it started to torrential downpour and my cute little cap got ruined from the rain... the things that you wear around your neck and down your back are called "hoods", so I thought it would keep the rain off of my head... I thought I looked like Dumbledore. 

A sea of proud parents!

Walking off stage with "diploma" in hand.... we don't receive our actual diploma for a month or so by mail. I loved that there were no assigned seats so I got to sit with my best friends and sorority sisters. jSl was right behind me and aBl was right in front of me!

Mac loves JMU! Every time he comes to visit, we take him to the quad to play! This was back in February and he had a great time!
aBl and I! We had matching necklaces on.

After yesterday, both cCm and I are graduates! What a month it has been! I am so thankful for all of my friends,  family and blog-o-sphere friends for all of the well wishes, compliments and support. I feel so lucky to have been fortunate enough attend such a wonderful school and receive a college education. Have a fabulous day!
