Congrats and Let's Party!

Last Tuesday marked a momentous occassion in our family.  Our oldest daughter graduated from college (a semester early).  The day couldn't have been more perfect!  The weather was beautiful, sunny and a balmy 70 degrees.  We are so very proud of her.






On Saturday, we hosted a dessert party along with a candy bar to celebrate the occassion with our family and closest friends.  I spent much of the day Thursday baking in preparation for the party. I haven't baked that much in a LONG time.  It was a lot of fun!!




The proud graduate!

With her sweet boyfriend.

A journal for guests to write their "words of wisdom" for the graduate.

Goodies...

and more goodies...

and the candy bar!

A fabulous time was had by all!

Ahhh! I am tearing up. So momentous. What a beautiful family and proud you should be. Darling candy and dessert party as well. Doing something similar for Christmas Eve. And that is my favorite quote of all time. It's so simple and so true.

What a fun party! I love the family photo of you all - you have a beautiful family. =) Did your daughter graduate from Kennesaw State in GA? My friend graduated from there a few years back. =)
