The day that I'd been waiting for, for years, had finally come. I'm officially a college graduate! You have know idea how much I'd gone through to get across the stage and have the feeling of success! It was a joyful experience to see my family and friends cheering me on with smiles and laughter. I've never felt so good!
I did my invites myself because my schedule was hectic, and this was beyond convenient. I didn't mail any out unless someone messaged me personally to let me know that wanted one for keepsakes. I thought placing them on Facebook and tagging family and friends was much easier--I think it worked out perfectly.
I don't know if you could tell, but I was going for a cute "retro" pinup natural hairstyle. For my first attempt, I think it looks pretty bomb. I think I'll try it again, but a different method. I'll let you guys know how I did it in a video or something.
Though you can't see them, I wore Steve Madden platform sandals--they were sickening! My dress was a classic black dress from H&M, and my nails and toes were painted with Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear polish in Mint Sorbet.
I think these colors together were cute and compatible!

I'll have plenty more of photos to show you in another photo gallery post, and I do mean plenty.
I'm so excited to have graduated. I'm proud of myself for not being fearful and discouraged even though their were times those feelings wanted to take over. I thank God for the family and friends he sent my way to help and push me through this process.
I love you all, and I promise to continue to make you proud!
