my youngest brother and sister, my mom and dad, and Chris

This weekend my family drove for hundreds of miles across the desert so they could be here to cheer for my 30-second walk across a stage. Since then, I’ve thought a lot about how my family – my parents in particular – always makes me feel like they have all the time in the world for me. It's not just for the big things, but in our day-to-day interactions. Even though they have other stuff to deal with, they never make me feel like their stuff is more important than my stuff.

And being a student, and preparing for the bar, it’s really easy to convince myself that my stuff is THE MOST IMPORTANT. But this weekend, spending time with people who have selflessly given me so much of their precious time, reminded me that I could be better at recognizing and behaving like other people are more important than my stuff. It’s just stuff.



  1. Bur your stuff is really important! ! ;) also, your hair IS SO LONG!! What the heck. It's been too long since I've seen you.

  2. Law school graduation is the worst because you get no time to actually celebrate, and instead you have to go right into bar study.

    But congrats! and if you need someone to cry about the bar to...

  3. who's the model in the suit?

    I kiiid, I kiiid. look how pretty and happy you are. good job on graduating. you dommed law school.

  4. You look so gorgeous! Congrats on graduating! What are you going to do now?

  5. Mad congrats! (and also, your hair is the best - I wish I could get mine that colour).

  6. What a beauty! Congrats again Brittney!
