Katie, at Zilker Botanical Garden on Saturday.
Guess who done graduated from college? That's right, this girl! I am so incredibly happy and relieved to have it all over with. I will miss some aspects of the academic life, especially my friends and professors. I will also miss my job at The Art Institute of Austin--I was the Fashion Assistant to the Fashion Department. Now, I'm down to the one retail job. Life will be a lot less busy now!
With my diploma, during graduation.
My entire family came to Austin for graduation. I spent most of the past week with them, as they flew in from California and Montana. It was a nice little break from reality to have them here. We ended up spending a good chunk of the visit just bumming around Austin. My graduation was on Thursday, so on Friday and Saturday we went downtown and to Zilker Park.
I ended up snapping these photos at Zilker Botanical Garden! The botanical garden is a great place to visit, if you're ever in the city of Austin. There are 8 gardens, including a pre-historic garden, as well as a Japanese garden. It's one of the few places that is beautiful all year-round in Austin, as there are plants specifically for the winter months, as well as the spring.
I also took a few other photos; hope you enjoy them!
What a festive little handbag!

Austin! Something is always "under construction".
