Graduation Day!

What a whirlwind of a Saturday!

We started off with a breakfast for 14 at the house and then off to graduation. The weather was a bit overcast, but it burned off early afternoon. Before the graduation, my Dad and I found Harleigh's car and decorated it with writing on the windows, a flag and stickers. Came home for a Southern barbecue lunch and then the open house. The attendance was overwhelming. Surrounded by so many loving co-workers, family, church family, neighbors, friends . . . what a glorious day!!!

I opted for those big 3-foot-wide balloons for outside. Tied them to a vintage suitcase I bought on ebay. Put a Georgia Southern University sticker on it and made a Class of 2014 tag for the handle.

My collection of bird cages always get so much mileage for events that I do. Graduation didn't go without one! [The egg in the nest is actually a real bird egg that fell out of a nest and never got beyond the yolk stage.]

The nest, with the remains of the egg shells and the cage door open! Whew! Teary eyed is all I can say.

Happy for the both of you. Success feels good!
