Happy Graduation!

Happy graduation B!
So much happened this past week!

On Saturday, we went to a friend's graduation party and Brett's parents came into town. On Sunday, we drove up to Watch Hill, Rhode Island to eat ice cream and stroll along the beach. On Monday, Brett graduated from Yale and won lots of awards! We now have official documentation on fancy Yale paper that he is, in fact, the smartest man in the world :-). On Thursday, I had my first job interview for an ATL-based job. And on Friday, I had two big projects due at work, we went to a party in a greenhouse, and we said goodbye to some friends.

It was a whirlwind to be sure. We were so excited for the long, relaxing weekend, which we spent eating homemade guacamole, checking out some museums, sleeping in, doing some yoga, watching Law and Order: SVU, and reading new books.

I didn't post much this past week with everything going on, but I'm really looking forward to spending some more time writing over the next few weeks and months.

And Brett: Happy graduation! You worked hard, grew tremendously as a scholar, wrote some awesome papers, have possibly cultivated the seeds of a really exciting and innovative dissertation topic, and never forgot to include women and the marginalized in your work. You even wrote an entire paper on menstrual blood in Leviticus! I couldn't be more proud of you.


  1. Thanks, baby! You're such a sweetheart.

  2. Brett you are one of the rare human beings who looks good in a graduation cap.


  3. Haha! Thanks, BK. But I hate that thing!
