I love my friends.

This weekend I've had the joy and pleasure of spending time with other women my age.

Oh, how I TREASURE this.

Shared stories, laughter, struggles, and style. Fun. SO. Fun!!

A year ago this last weekend I graduated from college. I know, RIGHT?!?! :) This weekend, a few of my graduate companions came together and we celebrated together. It wasn't sad to be there, but simply glorious. We had a photo shoot in the Baccalaureate Hall (and, I felt myself questioning: "Wait, it's been so long. I can't remember how to smile!!"). Weird, right? But, I realized... the last time we took pictures of ourselves for fun where we SMILED was probably a few months ago.

Too long, my friends.

Life after graduating? Well... it's very hard. Other parts: like the joy of friends, old memories, new memories, laughter, and celebrations? Those are worth living for.... God is simply glorified in those moments.

Because of the craziness of graduation last year... I didn't simply JOY in this graduation day and it's pictures. Today I'm posting a few of my favorites.

Yay, graduates..... You did it!! May your new adventures stretch you, mold you, and show you who you are- like they've done me this year :)


 Some things just keep us together! Yay for friendship bonds :)
These girls?! The best you'll ever meet.

And my personal favorite picture of all time Senior Year:
