And then it was done

I've decided it is known as Medill Time. Its a strange passage of time wherein days can last forever but months fly by.

And now, it's over.

I know that my experience has taught me invaluable skills on so many levels. And for that, I am grateful and feel ready to venture into the professional world.

I'm also pretty happy to have been able to enjoy this photo op.

 Arch. Diploma. Awesome.

Also this is to show how great we all looked in our purple robes with the strange arm things.

Updates and looking ahead

It's been over a month since I posted.

I beg forgiveness. May was the last full month at Medill. This of course meant deadlines, meetings, presentations and the like.

June swept in and with it, summer plans, family visits and this fun little thing called graduation.

And in the course of all of that, adventures of the barefoot or photographic kind were tabled temporarily.

But that shall change. I'm thrilled to be spending another summer in the Windy City as an intern. Not only for the fantastic opportunity but also to explore the city some more, on the weekends.

I will post some requisite graduation photos and some others. In the interim, enjoy some flowers!

Happy Birthday, John

There are no words for how nice it is to have family nearby or how awesome it is to feel so at home with them. Thank you so much for that. 
Best wishes today.

Happy birthday, JP

Being the oldest means you have to be the leader. Everyone looks to you for guidance and direction and, should something go wrong, the blame rests with you. I can't imagine its an easy job. But he does it very well.
Happy day, JP. Thanks for being so good to us.

Easter at home

Was able to sneak home for the Easter weekend, my first venture back east in four months. It was absolutely lovely to be home, see everyone and enjoy some homemade deliciousness.

Some shots from the weekend.

Hawk Hollow

Another shot from this weekend. 
Took Brady for a walk in Hawk Hollow, where the town did some controlled burning to replenish the soil.
