Proud Parents

Well, it happened.  Late last month my daughter graduated from college.  She is leaving her college town, home town, and moving herself to sunnier weather.  We have been packing, unpacking, packing, and unpacking again.  It has been a whirlwind, trying to find an apartment, picking out furniture, cleaning, etc..  Needless to say I have not had much time for crafts, but have managed to work on a few hand projects here and there.  Hopefully I can post them in the near future.  I have also tried to keep up with reading the blogs I follow, but I am so far behind it isn't funny.  But it is all worth when I look at this picture...

I don't know if she yet realizes how lucky she is!  She may disagree with me a bit about how lucky she is because there have definitely been some hardships along the way.  But I prefer to dwell on the positive.  Her college years have afforded her the opportunity to make new friends, have guidance from some great professors, and support from the community.  Although she is closing this chapter in her  life, she is now starting a new one with her career.  I hope she will be as lucky and I hope she knows how happy and proud her parents are.  We love you!
