Checking in from Chicago live at the moment. We made it safely here from Atlanta. Soon we board our plane to Copenhagen aka I’ll be in Malmö, Sweden in no time. Beyond excited to hug everyone. The past month has been somewhat crazy and hectic so I haven’t spent much time with mom and T but they are stuck with me now so I can finally talk their ears off ;) HUGS and CHEERS
WOW. Monday May 8th, 2017, is the best day of my life so far. Such an emotional, happy, exciting, and incredible day. I cannot believe that four years of hard work has finally come to an end. Four years, three colleges, two countries. I finally have a degree. I graduated with Magna Cum Laude. Best of all, was all the love and support from family and friends. I wish I could re-live this day forever. I am incredibly proud of myself and my accomplishment, but also so very thankful for my support system and my amazing mother. Nothing would have been made possible without her <3
I don't think I have ever had such a wide smile in every single picture from a whole day before.
My beautiful, intelligent, wonderful mom <3
Love you so much mom!
My pretty cap! I poured white glitter on paper after applying Elmer's glue with a paintbrush, then sprayed adhesive spray to attach the paper to the cap. The flowers I glued on with Elmer's glue as well.
Peace out GSU! Well in August haha!
The Dean giving a speech!
Nervous but ready to walk across the stage! I also spent my time in line taking selfies, why not?
Smiling and shaking hands!
WOOT WOOT I DID IT!!
Champs <3 These two had done such an incredible job throwing me a party, prepping the food, cooking and cleaning, and a million other things to make sure my day was amazing. So thankful!
Mama Miles <3
Mom and T had decorated the dining room so nicely <3
These stunning flowers are from "Mina Favoriter i Sverige" aka my favorite people in Sweden, of course they would sign the card like that instead of just putting their names on it, haha. Such a nice surprise to get flowers delivered <3
I love decorating the table and make flower arrangements. So much fun.
Yet another beautiful bouquet from Sweden <3
Of course we had Croatian, Swedish, and American flags!
Half of the appetizer spread (missing the salads and such in this picture).
Hello beautiful people <3
I totally forgot to take pictures of the actual dinner which was my mom's delicious lasagna. No one can make lasagna like her, it will leave you speechless. But here is the desert spread, as if we did not eat enough already, hehe.
Hello beautiful people part two <3
A huge thanks to each and every one of you for being part of my big day. I love you guys!
And then the night came to an end. Beyond happy and at a loss for words. I am the luckiest <3

Mom made such a gorgeous spring flower arrangement. I love lilies.
I ordered this pone case on Etsy because I thought it was so cute but it already broke... So frustrating when that happens.
Today I had a somewhat productive morning until I got to school and realized my headphones were gone. They are always in the same pocket of my backpack (yes I use a backpack, I refused for a couple of years until finally giving in). I turned my backpack inside and out and could still not find them. So strange, since I typically do not loose stuff (knock on wood!!). Managed to find them on Amazon with prime so at least I will have new ones arriving Friday. Anyone else who feels naked and strange without headphones?
How pretty are the colors of this tree? Talk about spring feelings. Behind it is a beautiful magnolia tree but I didnt have time to walk over and snap some pics of it.
Today I started my day like any other day, snoozing to my alarm. I was so mad at myself this morning for booking a Flywheel class but once I got up, and worked out, I was beyond happy. My endorfins were all over the place and I got SO much done before work, best feeling ever. I also got my grades back, four A's and two B's, wihooooo! Great day. Hope you all have a happy Friday <3
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving spent with loved ones! I know I did <3
Happy Thanksgiving <3
This vase is both pretty and functional. It is great for when you do not have a lot of flowers too, because then you really see the design of the vase. My best friend bought me one for Christmas last year and I loved it so much I had to get mom one for her birthday.
