Birthday with a BA

It’s a great day for a birthday! I received my BA in Communication Studies this afternoon in a ceremony at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, and I have all my lovelies with me. 

I was featured in the local newspaper, too. You can read the article HERE.

Aren’t my guys the cutest?!
I am so grateful to have family here in Germany to celebrate my birthday! My cousin Holli and her family met up with us for dinner, and it was crazy fun chaos.

We celebrated my graduation and birthday with dinner at a Mexican restaurant.

I posted the following on Facebook: “THANK YOU, everyone, for all the love and encouragement today! I made the mistake of skimming over all the posts and messages before my graduation ceremony, and became verklemmt many times over. Thank goodness for waterproof mascara! Friends, family, military sisters & brothers, coworkers, mentors, neighbors…people from all the chapters and eras of my life reaching out and reminding me of the rich, full life I live. What a gift!!! Thank you for being part of it, for being in my network.”
