graduation day {part 1}

Our memories mold us, and move our hearts.  
And the good ones set standards and bars and traditions.


There was no doubt in my mind that we would take the time, make the time, to continue the graduation lunch tradition. Even in the flurry of the party to-do list, and graduation guests, it was necessary. If not for him, for me. Looking back on the weekend, I am extraordinarily thankful for this calm couple of hours... to sit and talk with my son, to let him know how proud and excited we are, to laugh with him, celebrate him... just us.

special dessert, thanks to auntie tina! 
By the time we got home, it was just about time to get ready for the ceremony... and share him with the world. It seems life is all about making these small steps towards just that.  But it is a-okay, because I know he is ready to take it on.

I LOVE that you were able to have this time together; the calm before the storm. So much excitement for one day...well, for one weekend. It's enough to lose your marbles; glad you didn't do that. Love the dessert pic and smile!
