The day that we have waited three long YEARS for finally came and went. My husband graduated from Law School and is now one step closer to becoming an attorney :-) The ceremony took place at Copley Symphony Hall in downtown San Diego - and it was a gorgeous venue. Watching Brandon graduate was more emotional than I thought it would be. I am continually amazed by Brandon's dedication to school - and the amount of hours he can spend locked up in his room with all of his text books. I also continually fall in love with him for that brain of his. *WARNING: Bragging ahead* In addition to receiving his Juris Doctorate, he was 1 of 5 students who received an award for graduating Summa Cum Laude - which is the highest honors you can receive (generally awarded to the top 2%). He was also the Executive Editor of the Law Review and a member of the Moot Court. Take a peek at the Law School program - if I didn't love him so much - I would be annoyed by him ;-)
(Love the last part) After the ceremony we couldn't wait to hug the new grad and take
My Dad has always wanted me to go to Law School and although I didn't - I did the next best thing...I married someone that did. My Dad couldn't be more proud of Brandon.
After pictures, we went to lunch at C-Level at the harbor. It's a gorgeous restaurant right on the water. And who came by on their sail boat? Larry Richards - a really close family friend of Brandon's parents.
After lunch, Brandon took us for a tour of his campus. Here is a picture of my mom and myself in the Moot Court Room :-)
After that, it was back to the house for coffee and cupcakes and family :-) And yes, I had to throw up a few cheesy decorations.
A celebration without cupcakes, isn't a celebration at all. (As usual, I ordered these cupcakes from Alicia at Crimsoncake.com)
Andddd, of course we each wanted our photo with the graduate :-)
Kandi said hugging Brandon is the closest she'll ever be to a Law Degree.
Brandon's parents raised an amazing man!!
Way to go Shushi! You did it! I love you more than anything on earth.
NEXT: That little three day quiz called the California Bar exam. Bar prep classes started two days after graduation and will continue for the next two months. I have a feeling that this summer won't be our favorite.
