40 days till the Wedding and FIVE days till Graduation!!

I have officially completed my papers, tests, and exams.
I am officially (almost) a graduate of College of Charleston!

Today I turned in my final take home exam, completing my exam week!
Then I found my graduation dress:
Seascape Dress

At CofC the girls wear white dresses and the guys wear white dinner jackets in place of normal graduation robes.
I think this is such a classic touch and unique to CofC!

In five days i will be walking across a stage in front of this building accepting my degree from the School of the Arts in Historic Preservation and Community Planning:
The Importance of Place

I am soo excited!! But soooo sad at the same time!
It is going to be surreal to not have a school to go back to in August.
I cannot believe that I will not be in Charleston everyday for most of the year.
It is just going to be a huge change.
I am excited for the next few days before Graduation when we can go to the beach and just enjoy this amazing city we have grown to love so much.
Charleston has become a part of me and I will never forget it or all of the amazing memories i have had here! 

This past week has been spent in the Library preparing for exams....
I had a break from thursday to today and all I did was sleep!
I was up soo late every night last week and the only thing that kept me going was triple venti soy mocha lattes, apple jacks, sour patch kids, and of course my study buddy!
who also gave me this awesome side braid:
Yes, dad, we did also got our work done! I promise!

Tomorrow Charlie has to be up at 3:30 in the a.m. to drive to Jacksonville, Florida.
He is going before the boards for the Army's Officer Candidate School.
It would mean a lot if you remembered him in your prayers as he makes the drive down there and back in one day, and as he interviews.  
Its a long tedious process and we are just praying the Lord will move in our lives and help guide us in the direction we are both supposed to take.

we are still trying to find a christian song for our soloist to sing during the wedding.
Any suggestions would be sooo helpful!

Hope all of you have had a fabulous day!


  1. How about "I just call you mine" by David Phelps or there is also a country version by Martina McBride. :-]

  2. "God Gave Me You" by Dave Barnes

    "Love Never Fails" by Brandon Heath

  3. oh! and "We Are Man and Wife" by Michelle Featherstone

  4. My roommates cousin is a Christian singer and her song "You're not Alone" is amazing!!!
    Her name is Meredith Andrews.

  6. Love how you captured the side braid action. Too cute!
