Jake and Kerry: A picture book.

Today, we celebrate the birth of one of my very best friends: Jake! We met in college and while we didn’t quite hit it off right away, the friendship we have today is equal only to the bond I have with my family. As a college graduation gift, I made him a picture book of some of our adventures together.

We worked as Resident Assistants (RAs) together our senior year, and were fortunate enough to have a close, family-like staff. I made this in 2010 and I don’t think it had any captions, but I’ll add some in now. And, go!

Jake and Kerry 4For some reason it was a good idea for us to have sleeveless sweatshirts. But it was cold so we had to wear hoods. College, right?

Jake and Kerry 6We both enjoy a good fire.

Jake and Kerry 7We worked overnight shifts at the front desk of our building. They were usually one-person shifts but sometimes we would keep each other company.

Happy Birthday, Jake! I hope it’s a great one :)


Photo an hour, my brother’s graduation

Yesterday my brother Joey graduated from Framingham State University! And we (me, Mom, Dad, our younger brother Bob) all went up to watch and celebrate!

8:30: Signing cards! I couldn’t find just the right card, so I got two. Yeah, that’s a birthday card.

9:30: Laying out my outfit.

10:30: Nachos, breakfast of champions!

11:30: While walking Panda before we left I spotted some bumble bees!

12:30: Driving up to Framingham I noticed a big scratch on my brother’s leg.
Me: “Bob, how’d you get that cut on your leg?”
Bob: “I was sad.”
Bob: “No, but seriously, I fell.”

1:30: The graduation ceremony finally started with a bag pipe procession.  Almost everyone stood to listen and try to see (which was impossible because EVERYONE was standing). We were ready for it to end.

2:30: Sharing some of my snacks with Bob.

3:30: After the graduation we all went to check out Joey’s new apartment! My Mom found several reasons why it was “under code.”

4:30: Dinner at Uno’s! The waitress brought free dessert :)

Nap happened. We lost a lot of time.

7:30: After the graduation I headed out to watch Game of Thrones with my friends Kevin and Claire.

8:30: I love this little donkey by their door. And he has a sign because Claire graduates this year, too!
