The Graduation
Part 1 of our 3-Day Weekend in St. Louis

We truly packed in as much as we could this past weekend. We left on Friday to attend a Graduation and a Wedding, but we also got to see family members we hadn't seen in ages, meet new friends and even do some light sightseeing. A great time was had by all!

So, since this is way too much to post at once (and to tell you the truth, I just can't edit pictures fast enough since I had over 200 of them) I will break this up into installments.

First off we have THE GRADUATION. My sister, Catherine Prann, and her fiancé (and now husband) Jason Alviene received their Doctorate degrees this past Saturday from the Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, MO. All their hard work finally paid off and we couldn't be happier for them.

Here is the happy couple right after commencement.

My sister graduated with High Honors so she received a special award at the beginning of the ceremony.

We have a Doctor in the family ... and the documentation to prove it!

I am so proud of my lil' sis...

The girls had some fun playing "graduate"...

And even did some posing for ol' mom...

The family got together for a family picture (sans the graduates). Here we have my cousin Olga and her husband Jorge (on the far left of this picture), who came all the way from Puerto Rico to celebrate with us. We were so happy to see them again! Then right next to them we have my mom & dad (a.k.a. mami & papi) who came up from Florida this weekend and are staying through the week.

Patty, Sydney, Olga & Sophie:

Tomorrow, if time permits, I will share pictures of the wedding... which, believe it or not, went off without a hitch just hours after the Graduation.

Then I will also share pictures of our meeting with Michael Miller designer Laura Gunn and her lovely family. Check out her blog today... she has posted a recipe for her homemade peach crisp which I was lucky enough to try at her house.

It's good to be back.


  1. Congratulations! I know your proud of your sister. I was extremely proud of my brother when he graduated from law school last year.

  2. Thank goodness everything went without a hitch(unless you count the obvious bit about people getting hitched). How was the dress - and will there be pictures!

    What a great accomplishment. You and your family must feel so proud right now.


  4. Thanks, girls! Yes, we're incredibly proud.

    Kim... "hitch"?!!? LOL! I didn't even think about it... that's how drained I am this week.
