The week leading up to graduation was exciting, albeit slightly nerve-wracking. I realized after I walked across the stage how anxious I had been, since it felt like a weight was literally lifted and I could finally breathe easy.
After sitting through a graduation rehearsal that lasted hours longer than necessary, we went out to Folly Beach for brunch at the Lost Dog Cafe. We sat outside drinking mimosas and pimosas (pomegranate mimosas), eating our beloved brunch food (hi crabcake benny), and feeling positively giddy about what the future will bring.
Then we took a walk along the ocean, buried ourselves in warm sand, and reveled in the perfection of the day.
