Last week was such a whirlwind- I started a new job, and I graduated high school! The days leading up to graduation were hectic, but in the end, it was all worth it.
After a week of rehearsals and senior activities, we arrived at school on Friday around 4:30 to prepare to receive our diplomas. I wore this white dress from Abercrombie (fun fact- I also wore A&F to my eighth grade graduation!) This dress combined three of spring's biggest trends- one sleeves, eyelet, and ruffles!
Inside the school, it was painfully hot- especially in our black robes. Luckily, it was breezy and comfortable outside, so the ceremony went off without a hitch. It was a beautiful night filled with laughs, tears, and great memories. One particularly special moment was when the choir sang, "Let It Be"- it was completely acapella!
I couldn't have asked for a better way to end my high school career. Each graduate received a sunflower as a reminder to, just as the flower turns to the sun, to turn to God as we continue to grow.
After the ceremony, my family and I went home and ordered pizza while watching the (rather unfortunate) Celtics game. Next week, I will be having a party with lots of my family and friends, and I can't wait!
