Mother’s Day 2014 was extra-special because it was also college graduation day for Adrienne. It was so bizarre to me that exactly 22 years ago on the very same morning, I discovered I was pregnant with her. It was a miracle weekend. In the winter of her senior year of high school, months before she knew what college she would be attending, both my dad and Neil were diagnosed with cancer. (My dad with lung from melanoma; Neil with colon via a routine colonoscopy.) These photos speak volumes about the power of prayer.
Yeah, we pretty much all coordinated our outfits to match the school’s colors. My OCD brain is so thrilled that Barnard College has the same color scheme. I like when everything matches. 😉
Adrienne accepted a full-time job working for Duke as the Research Director for the Duke Center for History, Policy, and Social Change. I will be sharing before and after apartment photos and furniture DIYs soon. It was so much fun to help decorate her first apartment! I think I made 237 trips to Target in 5 days. A dream job at Duke for her plus a dream job for mom being able to justify trips to Target equals a win/win.
