Graduation!

As of last Thursday, I'm officially a college graduate! Wooo!

My family from Florida came up for the ceremony and to celebrate. It was so fun! The ceremony was pretty short and sweet compared with what I thought it'd be, which was really nice. Afterwards, we went out to lunch at a nice restaurant to celebrate and took pictures outside. It was such a bright, sunny day...perfect!
I can't even believe I'm done. The whole ceremony felt surreal and I don't think it has really hit me that my college career is over. I'm starting to get excited about whatever it is that comes next, though. Who knows what it will look like. I could get a 'real person' job, an internship, a part-time job...there a so many possibilities. 

I'm pressing into the Lord as I apply for things and figure out what to do with myself now. Eddie and I are at a point in our lives where we have very few responsibilities and no babies. We're praying and brainstorming about what to do with this window of time and the rest of our lives, ha. I have to keep reminding myself to cling to the hope and excitement in the possibilities rather than freak myself out about everything being unknown, which I've been more prone to do lately. Thankfully, I have a sweet husband who talks me through it all and hugs me when i get stressed out. I love him.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6
