This evening I am at my parent’s house, the house I grew up in (since I was brought home from the hospital…we have never ever moved, weird huh?)I have an early AM doctor’s appointment and my doctor’s office is near my parent’s house (can you say, hi, I haven’t lived at home in 7 years and have yet to switch doctors. Sad). Oh, and check out my old post if you want to see what my doctor looks like. It’s bad. Luckily, tomorrow is a quick shot so I’ll be in and out and probably won’t have too see her. Not like she has time for me anyway.
So, I love going to my parent’s because because they cook me nice dinners, dote on me, etc. But little did I know that they would have graduation presents waiting for me. Yay! I honestly didn’t even expect anything because, yeah I just got my master’s degree, but I have yet to find a job that requires me to change out of my pajamas in the morning. Plus, graduations in December are never as exciting as graduations in May (I also finished undergrad. in Dec…I guess I enjoy being untraditional). But I always accept presents and was super psyched!
Look, kids, no more camera phone pics! It’s about time. Sas actually gave me her old digital the other day because she got the pink Sony she had been dying for and was sick of my camera phone photography (though my skills were mad). I am seriously in love with this new camera. Welcome to the 21st century, Susie. You’re a big girl now.
Also, I’ve been super obsessed with Story People for years now (and could literally spend HOURS browsing their website. It’s addicting). I love Brian Andreas’ prints and the stories are so beautiful. For my parent’s anniversary a few years ago I got them a framed print that says, “There are things you do because they feel right & they may make no sense & they may make no money & it may be the real reason we are here: to love each other & to eat each other’s cooking & say it was good.” This is PERFECT for them. My parents are crazy cooks and we legit sometimes just sit at the dinner table saying “mmmm this is sooo good” over and over. Anyway, they got this one for graduation:
In case you can’t read it, it says, “There has never been a day when I have not been proud of you. Though some days I’m louder about other stuff so it’s easy to miss that.” So beautiful, and probably so true for many parents and children.
Bed now, up much earlier than I’m used to for my appointment!
Oh, and happy birthday to my sis
