A Day to Remember

It seems like there are a lot of dates to remember this time of year.  On May 8th, it was 9 years ago that I fell down some stairs and totally jacked up my left ankle.  On May 9th, it was 1 year ago that I almost needed to seek a discount when it came to future glove purchases.

Thankfully, there are many happy memories too!  On May 10th, it was 14 years (gasp!) since I graduated with my Bachelor's degree.  On May 9th, it was 13 years ago (gasp again!) that I graduated with my Master's Degree.  But more importantly, 10 years ago today was a day I'll always remember...10 years ago today, I graduated from law school! 

In some ways, it really seems like it was only yesterday, but at other times, it seems like I've earned those 10 years too.
I had my parents, my Dad's parents, my Mom's mom, an uncle & another uncle and his very preggo wife there in Lubbock with me.  I'm so happy that everyone of them was able to come and celebrate the day.
It was such a happy day, and sometimes I look at the photos of me and my friends and wish we could go back to that exact moment in time.

~A moment before we all physically moved in different directions. 

~A moment when we were all blissfully unaware of the horror that was about to rain down on us for the next few months...The Bar Exam!  For those of you who haven't experience "The Bar", it really does change and scar you for life.  It has to be similar to a bond shared with war buddies. 

~A moment in time when I had red hair and was way skinnier! 
But we can't go back, we can just remember the day with fondness, and that's what I'm doing today.  I'm so thankful for the law school experience if for no other reason that it directly or indirectly led me to all my best friends.
