Cara finished her doctorate from Cal State Fullerton, and is definitely a reason to celebrate.
Her and Madeline are friends from the Master’s Program at CSULB. Madeline just finished her admin. degree while I am inspired to go back to school. Plus, Cara just accepted a teaching position at Long Beach City College (on top of her high school English classes). Over achievers, maybe. But we have great conversations that are motivating and supportive of one another.Cara’s mom and I have similar taste so I was all about the decor.
A type writer
with a hand typed note
plus flower arrangements in old books
and school themed favors.
The notebooks were an instant hit with the kidsand yes even those..had stamped messages inside!!The party included brunch at the Orange Hill restaurant
with a fondue fountain that included dipping treats in chocolate.You know how brunch is, we ate until we were stuffed. But I was surprised that the youngest was going strong, even when everyone else was done.She went slow and steady, enjoying those bites of cake.
