Today has been a beyond wonderful day. Words can truly not describe it. Last night I could barely sleep from all the excitement and today still turned out better than my wildest dreams.
I graduated at 4 P.M today with my Associates Degree in Liberal Studies. Then I had a FANTASTIC time with my boyfriend (who is an absolute sweetheart and a wonderful man) and my family. We took lots of pictures and then went to dinner. We ate a fabulous meal and then I went with my Aunt and Uncle to Burbank.
I walked in the lobby and was so happy to see everyone. Then Tami Glatz surprised me with the best gift ever: a book with signatures from all of the my genea-buddies. I almost burst into tears I was so happy. It was amazing. I love it. To everyone that signed it: I love you. You guys always believe in me and support me and I wish I could find the words to thank you. Tami – this book is AMAZING and thank you so much for it.
It was hard to get to bed. I am so tired from such a long day but so happy and excited that I just can’t sleep. I suddenly feel like a little kid again. It doesn’t help that now it is Saturday morning and I woke up really early. The moment I opened my eyes I was awake. I am just so excited for today. It is really early and only a few genealogists are walking down to the library – and most of them are the ones going to the FamilySearch breakfast.
Note: I’m publishing my Jamboree posts without much proofreading but that is because I want to share the information in the quickest way possible (and because it isn’t even 7 AM yet!). I do plan on editing these posts when I get home and have had a chance to let my sleep recover.
