Graduation

Last Friday, we drove down to Tucson for Ryan's graduation. He is officially Ryan Gibb, MD. Kinda scary. The ceremony was actually really good and Griffy and I got to go up on stage to "hood" Ry. I got a little teary as I was thinking about Ry and his accomplishments and the long road it took him to get here. It was just over 3 years ago when he struggled with his choice of becoming a doctor and took a leave of absence from med school. We packed up and moved to AZ to start anew. Deep down I always knew he'd go back to medicine but I knew he had to make that choice for himself. And he did and I know it's the right one. Except the part about moving to Albany. That can't be right!

My favorite job

I have had several different jobs in my life. I worked at a dry cleaners in high school, then moved on to telemarketing, Gas'n'Go, and a secretary in my early college years. Next, I was a secretary for my bro-in-law's auto glass company. I finally graduated college and got married and worked as an administrative assistant and part-time Gap employee. But throughout my working years, I never felt satisfied or really happy with my job. I knew exactly what I wanted to be in life and it wasn't a secretary or a Gas'n'Go girl, surprise.
It was a mom.
And over 3 years ago, I got my wish and I've never been happier!!


Happy Mother's Day to my fabulous mom! You taught me well and I'm so lucky to have you.
And Happy Mother's Day to my sweet mother-in-law, Jo Lene. You raised an amazing son who I get to call husband. Thanks for being so kind to me.
