Today’s journal entry is extra special, and more so an open letter to two extra special people than anything else!
Dayna and I are quite proud, our little sister and her awesome boyfriend graduate from our alma mater this weekend. Check out all the fun we had around campus at The University of Texas at Austin snapping individual and couples senior portraits back in Austin!
‘Nik & Sam – IT’S GRADUATION WEEKEND! From your big brother and sister, congratulations! We are so proud of you two, and so excited to see y’all thrive in the real world! (Don’t worry, it’s actually pretty awesome and not as bad as people make it out to be!)
As Texas Exes, we know how important this day is for you, and we cannot wait to celebrate your success and achievements (from conquering classes to 6th Street, haha!). In all seriousness though, take this day in! Every. Single. Second. Why? Because this is it. This is the cherry on top of four awesome, amazing years, and now, a rushing wave of emotions is coming for you as you get ready to leave The 40 Acres!
A few To Do’s: Take a few minutes to reflect on your time at Texas. Go do those little things you haven’t don’t yet – CHECK OFF THE LIST FOR ‘NIK ALREADY JUMPING IN THE FOUNTAIN! Stay in touch with your closest friends, no matter where everyone moves to. And finally, never forget…
CONGRATULATIONS, ‘NIK & SAM!
