It feels like these past two weeks
have been a whirlwind,
and I am slowly drowning in my to-do list.

I have not had a moment to sit and think,
and really enjoy the moment.

I am trying to box up our house,
finish school, and spend as much time as possible
with my dear husband.

Today was our presentation 
to Volkswagen,
our final advertising pitch as members of the BYU Ad Lab, 
and as BYU students. 

Living on little sleep,
we were the last group to present to them, 
and it was amazing.
The creatives did an amazing job with the ads, and execution
and our strategy was right on.

It hit me this afternoon,
once the presentation and lunch were over
that this was it.

Another chapter in my life is closing.
All too often it feels like I am counting down to the next mile marker
without actually stopping to enjoy everything in between.
I have always said that I couldn't wait to graduate
and now that the day is approaching,
I feel a bit weird,  a bit lost as I leave the comfort of being a "student"

I feel so blessed that I have my best friend next to me,
that seems to make each new change easier.
I feel less afraid to start a new "adventure
when I know that Adam is right beside me.

How exciting! Kudos to you for your internship in New York, though I don't envy how long you will be away from your husband. I can't imagine. I do wish I was at graduating point, but seeing as how I did things backwards... it's not soon happening for me. Congratulations!!!

I totally know how you are feeling right now. I felt the same way when I finished. Its like you are completely stepping out of this bubble that you have been in since Kindergarten. Its so weird.

but CONGRATULATIONS!!! What day is your graduation? Mine is Friday.
