GRADUATION

STEPHANIE ELLSWORTH MARCUM GRADUATED FROM BYU APRIL 24, 2009!!!

It finally happened. It felt like it never would. But now I am so happy. I don't have to come home at night and do homework anymore. I actually have time to start working out again and to start cooking actual meals for my husband! I can't wait for summer to begin.

So I discovered this past week that with a degree comes a raise and full-time status! I am very excited because I will make my New Years Resolution to make more than $9,000 a year. haha. BY FAR!! It is true. And Brandon is also working full-time this summer. So life is good.

Below are a ton of pictures from graduation. I couldn't decide which ones to put up, so I put them all up! So prepare yourselves.
It was so good to have my family here as well as my friend April and her Mom Sue. April taught English and Yoga in Asia so I haven't seen her in 9 months, so her and her Mom decided to make a road trip to Utah. It was such a blessing to have quality time with the two of them. I also haven't seen my Dad since Christmas and he is making so much progress. He walked all over with us with his cane. What a trooper.
