The Blues for Graduation

I adore the color blue. Not just because my little eyes are blue, but because it's such a mysterious, fascinating color. Maybe it's due to the fact that I like the water. Who knows.

 This is what I wore Monday night for graduation, and I love it. It's a little above my price range, but I couldn't resist. It's so light and airy.  It's COMFORTABLE. That's what really matters, right?
 Monday night I graduated from college. It's still hard for me to grasp the fact that I no loner have to sit in a classroom, or have to get up and go to the hospital. What is my degree you ask? I have my A.A.S. in Occupational Therapy , which means I am now able to become an Occupational Therapy Assistant. It's a mouthful, I know. I hated it when people would ask me, and I would tell them, and they would look at me like I just spoke in German or something. Anyway, this chapter of my life has come to a close, and now I must take a national certification test, and then find a job. YAY!
(My hubby and I. He graduated from the Surgical Tech program. Yay for him!)
