Cara’s Celebration

Cara finished her doctorate from Cal State Fullerton, and is definitely a reason to celebrate.
DSC00385 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.DSC00384Cara’s mom and I have similar taste so I was all about the decor.
