This will be a post mainly with photos because I've been so fatigued and am writing retrospectively so details are a bit of a blur (as they normally are with pregnancy). After our many adventures at home and abroad, and getting the experience, skills, and networks we desired, AJ and I finally graduated from BYU. We are thrilled!
We often look back over all that we did during our college years with such fond memories (even if it's been only a few months. We miss it already). The stories will be told to our posterity long after this day of celebration. The friendships made along the way will be remembered and hopefully kept in years to come. The honor of BYU's alma mater will live in our hearts and within our family (we'll nudge our kids a bit). It's been a long, fought for journey, but oh so worthwhile. We have come to really love BYU. Go Cougars!

I was honored to be asked to speak at graduation. Tears of joy and victory accompanied as I told my story and hope that others will stay strong along their journey. We're so grateful for all of the love and support from our families, friends, and mentors. There was much celebration afterwards with tons of delicious food (really craving it now).
The world awaits us in the adventures ahead...
