We Have a College Graduate!

After weeks of pressure and stress - well really after four long years of hard work and perseverance, The Maven walked across the stage at The University of Central Florida and accepted her diploma in Hospitality Management!

That's her at the top of the stairs!

Relief, joy and pride were the themes of the day.

Happy Graduate, Class of 2011

Roommate and great friend, M, and The Maven

Orlando Grandma gives the new graduate a hug

Now she will go forth and meet her destiny, which I predict will be something awesome.

Mr. Tennis and I join Orlando Grandma and The Maven to celebrate

A great day for our family.

Congratulations to your gorgeous Maven. What an accomplishment! I was thinking when I was in the Bahamas that the hospitality business could be such great fun.
