Working Girl ~ Day 3 (and a Mommy Flash Back)

You know the saying...
"Hard Work Pays Off"

We've all heard it, we've all said it...and for Amy, it did...
Sixteen Years of Schooling = One Fabulous Job
All those late nights reading...the all-nighters to finish a project...giving up fun on the weekends and holidays to prepare for a test...
Amy is now officially a part of the Mayo Health Care System...
ID badge, pager and parking spot.
I felt lucky to be there for her first day...
Having coffee together, sharing in the excitement.
Of course, I had to take pictures...
then... I had a brief flashback to her first day of school...
New outfit...coordinating jewelry, socks and shoes...
New school bag too...
Thank you, Ms. Brosz for teaching our girls to love learning.


You've come a long way, baby!
Best wishes to you.

Take care,
~Natalie

p.s. sometimes, it's all about your bag.
choose wisely...
consider the size, color, and number of pockets...
if you find the perfect bag...the price doesn't matter...

And I know it seems like just yesterday that you were sending her off to school for the first time. How fast they grow up. Congratulations to your wonderful daughter.

What a lovely post, Natalie! And congratulations to your beautiful daughter! I'm sure I'm not the only mother whose thoughts went back to our own childrens first day of school. It didn't take long for those years to go by, did it...LOL?
