Congratulations John!

How was your weekend? Mine went by WAY too fast, but it was good none the less. I don't have a ton of photos (as usual) but I did want to share a couple from yesterday. Yesterday was a pretty important day for my family, my brother (the youngest) graduated high school! We were all so excited to see him graduate and we're all so proud of him (and relieved that he did it!). He'll be moving out to Steamboat, CO at the end of July to attend Colorado Mt. College. I'm really sad he's leaving but excited for him too, plus it'll be nice to have another excuse for a road trip! After the graduation ceremony- which was held indoors because it poured- we headed back to my Dads for a party. Eventually the sky cleared and it was beautiful out!
The view from my Dad's in NH:
How was your weekend?

PS- I haven't forgotten to choose a winner for the giveaway, I'll announce it tomorrow!

I bet it was a great weekend! Your outfit is great and your little bro looks so happy. Very exciting and nerve racking to move out on your own; I'm sure he is very excited.

CMC is a good school from what I hear, I have a house about 2 hours away from Steamboat and I live right above that CMC location.

Good luck to him! And I love your belt.

steamboat is beautiful!!! when you visit your brother, go to strawberry park...it's a fantastic hot spring! so beautiful and relaxing -- but be careful not to stay too late, that's when the "must wear a bathing suit" line starts to blur!
