The End Meets The Beginning



Yesterday I graduated college. The "for real" graduation. I've been finished since December (hence my '10 tassel) but seeing as our college is so tiny, I had to wait to walk until May. Yesterday was also my mom's birthday! I've always felt like your only child graduating college is a pretty good present, right? It was a special day indeed. Friends and family were there and I was tickled pink. I was in love with my graduation dress (which cost me a whopping $19!) and my gorgeous new shoes thanks to Blowfish. My family surprised me with a gorgeous green sapphire necklace and my beautiful friends, Elle and Bryan, brought me equally beautiful flowers! Afterwards we met Elle & Bry at Sweet CeCe's for frozen yogurt before we departed for my hometown. 

The rest of the day was filled with family, a big meal, and an early, early bedtime. It was refreshing to not have to work for the whole weekend! Today Mike and I are spending the day together. Cutesy couple things! I'll be back tomorrow to reflect on a few other things and maybe share my graduation outfit (above). Don't judge me... but I'm wearing it today, too! (Flats though!) Happy Sunday, honeybees! xo

  20. Congrats Kaelah! Your dress is darling and I think you look adorable in your cap and gown! I graduate in 2.5 weeks, and I still haven't figured out what I'm wearing >_<

    On another note, I think it's absolutely amazing just how much you've accomplished since you 'graduated' from school and today the day of your actual graduation.

    You have a super successful blog, you're starting your own business, and you've started a movement to detox the world of negativity.

    You're truly an inspiration, and if this is what you've accomplished in this short amount of time, I can't wait to see what more you will do in the future! It will be amazing I'm sure! <3
