R has been working on his doctorate on and off for about ten years and I’m so proud to say that he’s finally completed it! When he started we weren’t married, didn’t own a house, didn’t have a dog, didn’t have M, he wasn’t working full time, we didn’t have S . . . he’s continued to work hard on his degree through many changes in our life together. I can’t even begin to say how happy I am for him and how proud I am of him. He completed his thesis around Christmas time and ended up having his diploma dated for the end of January, but it was so nice to have closure and get to celebrate as he walked across that stage yesterday. Then we celebrated with our friends and family! His brothers and mom and dad were all here, along with two aunts, an uncle and a cousin. My cousin came from Boston and lots of friends were here to celebrate too! We had a backyard fish fry, of which I took absolutely no photos! What a great day! Congrats baby – you earned this and we are all so proud of you!
