I try for the most part to keep my posts equestrian-related, but every once in a while my life outside of horses is too awesome not to share. This weekend was super busy; we traveled at mach 10 for all of Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but it was the best kind of busy because I got to see lots of family!
On Friday, my wonderful fiancé Sam graduated from law school. I am so incredibly proud of him for taking a leap of faith to follow his dreams; it’s been a long three years full of studying, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. He graduated in the top 25% of his class and has a job lined up that begins this fall — all things he set out to accomplish four years ago. So congratulations to the best husband-to-be; I’m so, so proud and happy for you!!
Then on Saturday graduation madness continued with my younger brother graduating with his Bachelor of Science (in materials chemistry, no less). We drove about 2 hours north to watch the ceremony and take him out to lunch afterwards. It was awesome to see him — and of course my mom was thrilled because he got to wear about a zillion special cords, because he got the brains in the family! Eric graduated Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa (which means he was top 1% of his class). He worked super hard in a very challenging program, and honestly I am so, so proud of my “baby” brother!!
|The entire clan, all college graduates now!|
Also, in bonus news my brother’s university is close to a tack store… so of course my mom and I had to stop to check it out. Annnnd I got a fancy new show coat! Yippee!
