It's official. Adam and I now each possess a Master's degree!
While there wasn't any pomp and circumstance in picking up our diplomas and transcripts from the academic records office, it was still exciting to get these in hand.
I have to brag on us a bit and share that we both finished our programs with all A's!
I now have my Master of Organizational Leadership, and Adam has his Master of Business Administration. After 18 months of incredibly hard work balancing working full-time and doing normal life while also pursuing these degrees, we're really proud to have these pieces of paper and all that they represent.
Trevecca has only one graduation ceremony each year, so we have to wait until May to walk. It's a little anti-climatic I suppose, but it's going to be fun to do the cap and gown photos together. I'm pretty sure we'll be able to sit together during the ceremony, too. Our families will enjoy getting to see us walk across the stage, and we think it's important for Connor to understand what it all means. He's certainly been part of the journey as he had many an afternoon or evening he had to entertain himself while we did homework.
Fittingly, we are working now on planning a vacation this year to celebrate. We haven't really had a true weeklong vacation together just the two of us since our honeymoon, and we feel like the time has come! Stay tuned for more info as those plans unfold.
