A Short Brag

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 fiancΓ© 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!

  1. Congratulations! My husband just finished his 1L year and is clerking this summer. Hoping to have the good fortune of a job lined up by his 3L year (so we can hurry up and get a horse again). And congratulations to your brother, as well πŸ˜€

    1. Small world! Good luck to your husband!! My best advice for having a job lined up is to go to networking events. Sam got his job lined up because he participated in a Mock Interview program through the school’s career services dept. Well, that’s where it all started anyways, haha
