~CROSSING THE FINISH LINE~

 
My Mr. AGPMan have been involved in a whirlwind of activity for the past several weeks and it culminated in a huge family celebration over this past weekend!  We proudly watched our beautiful daughter, Adrienne, walk across the stage on Friday afternoon at the University of Central Oklahoma to receive her college diploma.  We are overjoyed for our only daughter and we couldn't hold back the tears as she was handed her diploma.  Her degree is in General Studies with a minor in Criminal Justice.
In 2003 Adrienne graduated from high school and in 2007 she married her beloved, Micah.  They PROMISED they would finish school and indeed they both have!  Micah graduated on Saturday (their class was so large the University had to split the ceremonies into four) with a degree in Criminal Justice.
It's taken our girl and her hubby ten long years to complete their courses of study and to cross the finish line. I'm also thrilled to tell you (with a big, happy grin) they are graduating debt-free.  An amazing fete to say the least where lots and lots of sacrifices were made along the way.  It can be done!

After a large party filled with family and friends we are excited about the future for our kids.  We are blessed...so blessed.

This week I'm going to try my best and refocus now on some work...website restocking (which continues to suffer with empty shelves) and my new booth space at Serendipity Market in Edmond, OK.  Back to life as I've known it.

Hope your week is fab!

Love to you...

This is such an exciting milestone! OH, Becky, I can just feel your joy. I cried reading this, but in a good way.

She looks so much like you, and I know you must be so proud of her for this accomplishment and of your son in law, too. That's huge to graduate debt free. My best to both of them and congratulations!

I've been gone this week (out of town), but I posted yesterday so I'm going to be playing catchup. Did I miss the reveal of your store space??? I'm going to have to double back and see.

XO,

Sheila

Oh Rebecca! What a milestone! I was nosey-ing around facebook and wondered where you've been. I've been watching your fab new shop on FB and noticed you've been MIA. This is a very busy time of year for all of us. Today is the first day I've been able to photograph anything for my shop and forget blogging! LOL I look forward to getting back into it all.
CONGRATS to you and your family! Love reading this wonderful news :)

Congratulations to both graduates! Proud mom and dad, too. It took my Sarah 9 years or so, too. She did work many hours, too. Now my sweet SIL has been taking classes and working full time. Time to celebrate for sure!♥♫

PS-only three more days of school! Can't wait.♥
