My dear friend Debbie graduated from High Point University with her B.S. today! I am so so so proud of her. She worked full-time while attending school AND graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 3.9 GPA! She worked her butt off. I’m just in awe of her! (Also, High Point University is a gorgeous campus; I’d never been over there.)
It was a beautiful day for a graduation. We soaked up the gorgeous weather during the ceremony, where Colin Powell spoke. I was kind of obsessed with spotting the Secret Service during the ceremony, ha! He was a great speaker and really funny! And he stood up and took pictures with each graduate as they walked across the stage to get his/her diploma. What a cool guy.You’ll have to take my word for it that he was up there.
Or, you know, you could just look at this picture!
John and I just happened to be standing there when he walked out. He was stopping to shake hands with people, and it was totally out of character for me to stick my hand out, but I did and he stopped to shake my hand! Gah! So cool. That’s my outstretched hand. 🙂 I’m so glad John snapped a picture of him!
It was a really great day. Congrats Debbie!!! xoxoxoxo
Alright friends, have a great evening! John and I are off to see a movie–The Grand Budapest Hotel. Anyone seen it?
