The End of an Era

Why does it seem like it was literally yesterday that this picture was taken?


I don't even know how it's possible that three full years have completely flown by since then. Today is my last day of class, ever. After being in school for over 20 years, today marks the real end of an era. And in less than 2 weeks, I will have taken my last law school final and walked across the stage in my Manolos. This is it.

I thought that sitting down to write this post I'd have so much more to say about this chapter in my life coming to a close, but I am really ready to just start something new. Law school wasn't an on-a-whim decision for me; it was something I had been working towards for as long as I can remember, and I'm ready for the next.

One thing I can't deny is how much I'm going to miss the south, and specifically Alabama. I absolutely adore it down here and I fell in love with the culture & people that embraced their token yankee. As much as Michigan will always be home to me, it is going to be heartbreaking to leave the place I've called home for the last 3 years.

Signing off in true Elle Woods fashion (since she is clearly the reason I went to law school):

Congratulations Class of 2013, WE DID IT!
