    “Everything as it should be.”

    Well said! And I can’t help knowing that an achievement of the sort you set in quotations is no accident. If everything is as it should be, then goals and standards were carefully articulated, nurtured, bred, guided over time with lots of love, love for learning and a fair amount of discipline. A monumental effort on the part of all three in the photo, with this monumental reward justly deserved. And it’s just the beginning!

  • Of all the days to check in after an extended absence, I am so glad I did today! Congratulations and every success to your children, especially the newest graduate!!

  • Your face says it all. Congratulations to all of you.


  • Just lovely!

  • What a beautiful moment to capture! You must be so proud of your kids. :)

  • That is a great photo and it really captures a big moment. Best to your family.

  • Ahh, the cream of American academia;-)

  • Dear, when comparing your… oh so lovely jacket to mine, I can say that yours can at least be worn in public as an accessory. Mine is far toooo white, there is no way to make it blend with anything. It is like wearing a Lilly. :)
    Congratulations on your litter.

    Always, Bumby

  • You look absolutely aglow…and so very proud, what a special moment for the three of you!
    Many, many congratulations!!!
    xo J~

  • Love the way you are beaming, just radiant with pride. That is *very* cool.

  • Picture says a thousand words. This one? Yahooooo!

  • Thank you everyone! Thank you very much!

  • The two very best reasons for the smile on your face and every reason to be proud. Congratulations, Lisa.

  • Congratulations! Your happiness leaps off the screen and into my heart. All the best.

  • Oh, this image makes me happy – you too, I imagine. What a handsome, happy lot. Congratulations.

  • Long time reader though I’ve never commented, but I wanted you to know that you are absolutely glowing in this picture…beautiful and radiant come to mind! I’m guessing that those two beautiful children on either side of you have a little something to do with that…what you must be feeling on the inside is absolutely reflected on your smiling face. :-)

  • awesome! we love a great photograph that captures us at our best…

    congratulations, beautiful family!
