She Did It!

This is a proud mother post :)

David and I went up to Ft. Lauderdale for the big event, his mother came in from N.J. and his sister came from Chicago.

We stayed right on the beach and had our coffee sitting in the sand watching this the first morning.

And this the next morning

Such a gorgeous start to this:
Cori earned her doctorate in Psychology. 

Proud Dad

We did find an amazing dog sitter who texted me twice a day with pictures of the terrible twins. 
Maya had me rushing back to the Vet with an infection one more time before we left, so seeing that smiling face was a real gift.

Brady found the woman of his dreams and is still wondering if he'd rather have his new friend Marcie here or me. 

We celebrated, partied and ate and ate and ate, isn't that what family does when they come together like this?

The robes were hot, but I got her to wear that impressive hat on for a bit longer. 

We are all back to our homes and playing catch up, but I'm still glowing with pride. 



  1. Beautiful day, beautiful girl, what could be better for a mom?! Congratultions to all!

  2. Just fabulous. Congratulations to all of you.

  3. Thank you for sharing these wonderful pictures Dana! It's so easy to imagine what a great weekend it was now. Cori looks so beautiful and happy. :) Congratulations!

  4. Oh, congratulations!! Our youngest just registered for her first semester of undergrad for this same journey. She's a pretty steady personality, so odds are she will actually stay with her plan of working for the doctorate in Psychology. So nice to see someone on the other end of that path! Love the dog grams :D

  5. Congratulations on your girl!!! proud mom and dad for sure but you two did raise her!!!

  6. so glad to see this proud finish. Congrats to all.
