So I graduated and turned 40 at the beginning of May. Hard to believe that was already more than a month ago. This year has been insane. I’m pretty sure it was January just three weeks ago.

I actually attended graduation, which was surprising. Here I am, peaking at Dale through a sea of graduation caps. It actually ended up being a really fun day. Heather came from Traverse City and Rebecca hung out and we had a Mexican restaurant feast and margaritas (it was also Cinco de Mayo).

Thanks so everyone along who supported me throughout grad school, Dale in particular. It was a bit of a harder slog than I expected in some way but also fun and rewarding in others. We’re certainly racing onto the next phase of our lives: home ownership!
