Finished.











(Images via Pinterest and my tumblr)

***

It was a long road to travel and there were times that I truly thought I would lose my mind, but as of last Thursday I am completely finished with graduate school! Hooray! It's actually hard to believe and, honestly, hasn't sunk in yet.

There were times over the past few days that I caught myself thinking about what I have due, homework that needed to be finished, or emails that needed to be sent. Imagine my surprise when I remembered that nothing is due or needs to be finished or sent! For those of you who have tackled graduate school, you know the demands that it presents on your life and the relief that comes with closing that book for the last time and submitting that final assignment. 

**

Thanks to so many of you for the continued support while finishing this program. It has meant more to me than you know. I say it often, but the blogging community is amazing and I'm so thankful to know you all!


Cheers, friends!
