In 2010 I started on a very part-time basis my Masters degree program through the university I work for, taking one class per term. When I started the program I thought that perhaps one day when I finished and attended my commencement ceremony I might have a child to share the celebration with and lo and behold the day arrived and Sirena was able to be there with me along with the rest of my family. She was a huge inspiration to me in the last year of the program to finish the degree and it meant the world to me that she was there to see her Mama walk across the stage and get handed her diploma.
Photos from the commencement ceremony…
Words cannot describe how much my mom’s support means to me, especially when it comes to earning this degree. <3
My favorite photo of the day
Proud of my Masters’ hood! (Because when else am I ever going to get a chance to wear it?!)
Photos from the grad party my mom hosted for me…
My Aunt Kathy came up with a fun “What Would Lisa Do?” questionnaire that all of the guests tried to answer.
The winners (tied) for who knows me the best! 🙂
Part of the gang
The look on their faces says it all!
Love my siblings
My family <3
Proud of her Mama 🙂
