graduation day

I was on a plane during the commencement for last quarter, so I got to walk in yesterday's graduation & I'm so, so happy I did! It was such a perfect day--my family arrived in the morning armed with homemade quiche & chocolate pie, fresh fruit, flowers, champagne and wine, and so much excitement and pride. I got to walk with my roommate & fellow Creative Writing major/blogger Angela, see my best guy friends after (boys armed with flowers--just killed me), celebrate at my favorite local brewery with my family, and go out with my best friends after an evening cat nap. Not to mention the 2 am chocolate pie we shared.  


dress: Target, shoes: Old Navy

Ps. Love the dress, looks great under your robe, it really 'pops' (which I guess is why you chose it)
