My NYU Law Grad!

Well, folks, he did it!!!


My heart's all a flutter with joy for him!


The journey to his J.D. began back in August 2008.  We had just moved to Manhattan {into a 340 square foot apartment}, eagerly anticipating this new venture ahead of us.

I took the following pictures of NYU Law during Admitted Students' weekend in April 2008.

NYU Law sits directly across from the beautiful Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village.
  Fast forward three years -- and, as usual, the anxiety, the stresses and the unknowns seem like they may have all been worth it.  

As a wife, I could not be more proud of him.  He took a huge risk: He left a career, worked tirelessly to pursue his goal, landed in a top five law school, and handed me my dream of living in New York City.  Wow.

So, last week, he finally received well-deserved honors -- with a handful of fans in tow!  Both our families traveled here to celebrate!

The graduation ceremony took place at the Beacon Theatre on the Upper West Side.  And, while the venue was quite beautiful, the weather outside certainly was not.  As the students filed out of the theatre, the streets became chaotic and the army of umbrellas became difficult to dodge, making it nearly impossible to get any good pictures. :-(  At least I got a couple, I guess.  It looks like we might be ordering some of the professional ones. ;-)

Picture drama aside, it really is hard to believe he's finished with school.  Now, he just has two more months of studying.  Yep, folks, I sure can call my hubs an NYU Law grad, but that dang BAR exam ... geez ... looks like it's gonna consume his life 'til the end of July! {It's always something.} Wish him luck!  :-) 


  1. Congrats to you both! What an accomplishment! Will you be staying in NYC?

  2. Congratulations! I know you are so proud of him!

  3. Congrats to your hubs! You must be so proud! :)
    Can't wait for Marco to graduate!!

  4. I'm glad we were able to be there. It was quite a ceremony, lots of pageantry! On with the bar now. So looking forward to your being here. Love, Dad
