There was pomp. A little circumstance. Several tears. And M-shaped cookies.

DSCF0093To my incredible family, friends and boyfriend: [More times than I’d like to admit…] You picked me up when I was down and out. You reminded me why I was earning my Master’s degree. You made me see that I am capable of great things. I couldn’t have made it here without your neverending love and support.

I am forever grateful.
