Bittersweet Ending

As many of you know I graduated recently with my undergrad degree.

Thanks to the many of you who sent me congratulations via Twitter.

It was a big accomplishment and I am very excited to be done.


I’m also a little sad.

To find out why this joyous event has brought me a little down visit me at

A belle, a bean, and a Chicago dog.

    I can’t wait to never go back to school again! I was so happy to finish my masters only a few months after Laura was born, and can’t imagine trying to take classes again. School’s out for summer; school’s out for EVER!

    Congrats on graduating! That’s a huge step for anybody and an especially hard one if you have little ones at home. Believe me…I’ve been there.

      It is hard with little ones but it’s a wonderful accomplishment and something to make the kids proud.

    Why do I always visit people’s blogs on the day they are somewhere else? First of all, congrats on the instant success of vlog talk. Still debating whether I’m brave enough to try it. Secondly, congrats on completing your ungrad degree— that is awesome! Thirdly, umm…. see you at bellebeandog’s place?

      I guess you are just special in your ability to pick days to visit blogs. I don’t know about instant success on VlogTalk but it has been doing well for only being the second week. I think one day you will brave to get in front of the video camera. It’s really easy with an iPad.

      Thank you Dr. Bret! I’ll be there for my MBA in January. I just have to take the GMAT first. Wish I could bypass that.

    Congratulations on completing this chapter of your story…amazing and significant! Well done.

    Reading your post, the character quaility of determination comes to mind … Purposing to accomplish right goals at the right time, regardless of the opposition.* No doubt marriage and motherhood provided some lab time to cultivate your character already.

    Enjoy your journey,
