We're at Seagrove Beach this week, with no internet at our beach house (a blessing, really) so this will be quick. Just wanted to celebrate our daughter, Beth's, graduation from the University of Tennessee's Master of Architecture program last Friday. We're so proud of her. Her dad and I, and her fiance, Kevin, attended the hooding ceremony, which was for the graduate and undergraduate schools of architecture, and the interior design students.

... and her two best friends from UT, Katie and Kiel.
Tomorrow our son, Jason, and his wife, See and our granddaughter, Grace, arrive for a few days.
I'm pretty much in heaven here:-) Watch for a more serious blog post next week.
