Because I already participated in the commencement ceremony for my degree (way back in 2005!) I was not eligible to walk in this year’s ceremony. But, my husband’s parents treated me to a graduation ceremony of their own this past weekend. It was a lot of fun!

My mother-in-law gave a very nice commencement address in which she discussed the importance of hard work, perseverance, and resilience.


In addition to the honors I received from Keene State College, I also received several awards from the Wilsonian Institute, as well as from various members of my family (including my cat!).


It’s hard to believe this but the last time I “graduated” Lillia was the same age as Zane is now! She’s grown a lot since then but she always was, and still is, a huge part of my motivation to finish my degree.


My mother-in-law even made me this delicious cake, complete with a red & white color scheme — the colors of my alma mater.

I am so grateful to have such a wonderful family.
