Graduation Weekend
Me with my little sister Brooke and momma

I graduated from Elon University yesterday and tomorrow will mark my last time making the eight hour drive home to Pennsylvania. While I’m ready to make the transition from full-time student to full-time employee, I can’t help but get emotional about leaving my life here in North Carolina. While living far from home has forced me to take on basic adult survival skills (cooking, budgeting, time management, cleaning), my life during college really has been relatively carefree and simple. While I’m not sad about growing up, I am slightly scared about what life will be like without my friends. The handful of girls that I plan on continuing to have in my life after graduation (and who I know will one day be bridesmaids in my wedding) have given me so much and words can’t describe how thankful I am to have them in my life. We may not have spent every waking minute together throughout our past four years, but they have always been fiercely loyal and the girls I could turn to when times got tough. My college education has given me many things, but I find nothing more valuable then the relationships and life experiences I’ve obtained during my past four years. Thank you Elon for giving me best friends as well as a man who I love beyond words. Thank you for my prestigious education as well as a life-changing study abroad experience. I will always look back fondly on my college years and can’t wait to tell stories of Elon to the people I have yet to meet down my road. I feel so blessed and will always hold Elon in my heart. #tearfallsonkeyboard

My beautiful university. So blessed to have been able to attend such an amazing school. Long Live Elon.
The high low trend has been making a consistent appearance on my blog lately huh?
