Ready, Set, GO!

September 23, 2010
Yesterday was Matthew's first day of Graduate School. 
The night before was spent finalizing the syllabus for the course he'll be teaching - as well as collecting books, recorder playing. and zucchini-bread-making.
As I ushered him off, I was hit with how far we've come since the last time we were in school- we've been college graduates for over three years now, moved twice, lost family members, met new friends, had many adventures, and prayed over and over for Grad school - and now here we are.
When Matthew returned home last night after a full day, he said breathlessly:
"I can't believe I get to have this much fun everyday!"
When asked, "what would you like to do to CELEBRATE!?"
This is what my dear husband chose:

oreo/chocolate pudding pie with cinnamon vanilla whipped cream
Really, is there a better way to celebrate? :)

Here's to my brilliant husband -CONGRATS!


  1. Simplicity at its best. I am craving a piece right now and just might have to run to the store tomorrow to create a masterpiece like yours. Congratulations Matthew and cheers to the celebration of life!

  2. Thanks Nancy! Yes, I have to was pretty darn good!

  3. I'm so glad you two get to have so much fun everyday! I'm very proud of you both!
