yesterday, i wore a funny hat, polyester dress, and a white hood (really? i had to wear a white hood?) and wandered around the floor of the hockey arena
i wore shoes that were hurty, i shook hands with a chancellor and some deans, my face was on a jumbotron. i met the family of my friends who have saved my sanity over the past 2 years, i introduced my family to them. i went out to dinner with my mom, my sister and aunt.
but i finished grad school yesterday. so my mom stepped absolutely outside of her comfort zone, and had been working with some people at the denver folklore center to give me the instrument i’d been quietly wanting for 6-7 years.
highlights for children
i came home and fidgeted with it for a long time… i love it. it’s exactly the one i wanted – cherry back and top, linked a few months ago with little fanfare. my momma rocks…
