Happy Tuesday, ya’ll! I apologize for not getting a post up yesterday. And if you give me a minute, I’ll come up with a good excuse…
The truth is, I only opened my laptop ONCE this weekend and I’m not sorry. Our little Airbnb was filled with family and friends for Brain’s graduation from the Citadel. (Ten people and one bathroom… how did we make that work?!)
This is Brain. I’m 99.9% positive he will never see this blog. And that’s good ’cause I’m 100% positive he would kill me for posting about him. Brian is my best friend’s son, which in turn, makes him my son too. She claims JP, so it’s only fair.
We are SO proud of his accomplishments. Friday morning (graduation was Saturday) he was commissioned into the United States Air Force.
Somebody pass the tissues because I cried through the entire thing.
After the ceremony, we enjoyed lunch on campus and the senior cadets’ final parade.
I don’t know if it was my allergies or if I cried through this too…
(I mainly want to share this picture because my hair looks so good – not at all matted to my head – I know my fashion blogger friends will be impressed)
Saturday morning we woke up with the sun for graduation!
One final photo op with Brian and his Company.
After four hundred hours on campus, we packed up in the large bus and headed to the house for a (not so) small reception.
How cool are these cookies?!
The rest of the weekend was pretty chill. The house stayed FULL so Saturday night, a few of us went downtown for a couple of hours.
We wrapped up the weekend at a local steakhouse.
Thank you, Lord, for this food.
The boys were excited to see Brain. He gave them a cadet hat – I’m sure I don’t have to tell you, Preston hasn’t taken his off.
Once again, I was reminded this weekend of all I have to be thankful for. I am blessed with THE MOST amazing friends (who are family) and love celebrating life’s milestones with each of them.
We love you, Brian, and words cannot express how proud we are to have you serving our country!
