I made this post to my private Facebook page, but upon re-reading it I decided to share it here as well.

August 15th is a date I’ll remember forever: its the day I graduated from Texas A&M University. It’s the day my name was called, I walked across the stage at Reed Arena (ironically with “Happy Hour” written across the top of my cap) to shake hands with Robert Gates, and I was handed a diploma declaring I’d received my BS in Journalism (or as I like to call it, my BS in BS.) It was an ending, but also a beginning. It was a turning point in my life, and so much of what I do today is because of my days at TAMU. I’m passionate about my university, and I tell people very proudly that I’m not just a fan — I’m alumni. And for that reason, I’ve gotten to meet so many amazing people though the Middle Tennessee Texas A&M Club, and it brought the fantastic people of the Nashville ACC SEC Leadership Council and CASA Nashville into my life. I’m thankful for my collegiate years and how they set me up to be the person I am today. They continue to open doors for me, and I am certain that they will for years to come.IMG_0665

    Happy graduation anniversary! :) It’s Chris’s grad anniversary, too. And our neighbors’ son graduated today. Whoop!

    I remember that day well. I guess it was turning point for us all. Your dad always tells me that he knows why he feels old. Well, yes, but not feeling that old, well, not all the time at least. I hope more and more doors will open for you soon.
