Charleston is pretty in May. Very, very pretty. One weekend of the month, students graduate and campus is the backdrop of photo-ops. There are celebrations. White suite-jackets and diplomas. And, in the ceremony I walked in, one student’s protruding selfie stick.

Class of 2015. I finished my degree ten months ago, but chose to wait until the Spring ceremony to walk. A choice I do not regret. The best choice of all? Choosing that institution in the South… I owe it.It changed my goals and my voice. And you can’t feel anything but good things for a place that does that. I’ll love it for life.

To all the graduates this year, CELEBRATE. Then take it slow. Play it back. Cherish it. What my morning that day looked like? Acres of farmland. My mama cooking omelettes. Sharing coffee with my grandma & aunt. Then champagne! Listening to my brother’s and sister-in-law laughing. Arranging a bouquet of flowers. Playing badminton with the person I love. Getting fancy. Driving downtown. Doin’ it big.  Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

Some photos above were shot by my father. Some were shot by my boyfriend, who kindly held my camera and purse for most of the day.
