[ my beautiful family, how I love them so. ]
[ So glad my husband caught this candid shot, this is the perfect representation of how I felt. ]

Well folks, I graduated!
My husband, little Charlie, my parents, Leanna, Ernesto, Azaliea, Jeremy and Katie came up to Rexburg to show their support. Commencement was in the new BYU-Idaho Center and it was quite the experience. President Kim B. Clark presided and shared a short talk to the graduates. I was so overwhelmed with emotions during that commencement ceremony.
Tears were in my eyes the entire time as I listened to the
beautiful musical numbers and the talks.

The most important thing I took away from graduation was the confirmation that God loves me. I felt His love the entire time and it lingered with me the rest of the night. I felt so special.

I am so grateful for the family and friends that helped me get to this point.
I am grateful for the many prayers that have been answered this last year.
I am so grateful for my husband who was the most supportive person in this process.
Lastly, I am grateful for my Mom going back to college with 5 kids(3 teenagers, 1 in middle school and 1 in elementary school), you are my greatest example!
