You can call me Master.
Logan and I both graduated this weekend. I graduated with my Masters in Social Work and Logan graduated with his Bachelors in Exercise Science. Graduation has been a long time coming. When I think about it I have been in school for pretty much my entire life up until this point. Even when I graduated with my Bachelors I never really felt done like my classmates did. I always knew that I would need to continue on in order to do what I love. But now I am done. "Done" what a funny word it is when you say it over and over in your mind. I guess we are never truly done with anything in life. There is a tiny space in the back of my mind that I have filled with the hopes of getting a Phd. But at this point in my life I do feel a vague sense of completion. I have poured my heart and soul into this degree and am excited to finally use it.

Logan and I had a wonderful week. My parents came into town and spoiled us rotten. They took us to our favorite places to eat and we played and had an amazing time. Towards the end of the week Logan's mom and her husband Steve came into town followed my my brother Sean and his family. Logan and I love and appreciate our families so much. Family is a priority in our lives and we are always amazing at the support and encouragement that we receive from those we love.

This weekend my heart was full as I achieved an amazing accomplishment with my husband by my side. Honestly when I was younger I never thought that I would get an advanced degree, however when I discovered my passion for therapy and helping others I was shocked at the fire that was ignited within me. I would have never ended up where I am without the love and encouragement that Logan constantly provided me with. I am so grateful for his support and his perception of who I am as a woman. Logan literally makes me feel like I can do anything that I should do everything. I love that he constantly views us individually on a level playing field and makes me feel unique for my strengths as well as my weaknesses. My ambition has never intimidated him, but made him see me for who I really am. I am so grateful for what I have been able to achieve and am so excited to watch as Logan continues on to Medical School and becomes that person that our Father in Heaven intended for him to be. He constantly amazes me and I know that he will accomplish great things.
Now that graduation has come and gone I am focusing on the transition that I will experience from being and academic to a professional. I am both scared and excited for my adventure into the professional world. I suppose it is best just to take it one day at a time.
