St. Louis Sightseeing

Bret had never been to St. Louis, so we took time to stop at the Arch - although we did not ride to the top. It's neat how the Arch is located right on the water as well. Mississippi River.

Stephanie and Brian Russel's Wedding St. Louis

Stephanie and I lived in the same dorm, Dorsey Hall, at Miami University our freshman year. We were friends since. She and Brian also met atMiami, and were so kind to invite us to their wedding in St. Louis, Stephanie's hometown. We had a great time! It was good to reconnect with so many people we have not seen in awhile. And a little getaway for us!

The beautiful ceremony - hand written vows were neat.

Look at that dress!

On campus of St. Louis University

Their cake was SO COOL!

Many girls from Miami I haven't seen in quite awhile.

Butler Grad

My family sure made me feel loved on my graduation - sugar galore! I really appreciate everyone loving support. This was a big accomplishment and it took a great deal of work. Praise God for His hand in admitting me to school and sustaing me. And I know He will see me through my career. All praise to Him!

Bret's cake gift to me - he loves me!

Thank you Bret!

My momma's creative handiwork!
Love you Mom!

Pretend :) Gives you an idea of what grad looked like....

Graduation from Butler was a neat milestone. So, this makes me a Physician Assistant. It was a three year Master's program at Butler University in Indianapolis. Boards are taken after graduating and this certifies you to practices nationally. My two best friends in PA school are Julie McDonald and Katie Boone. We practially got each other through school - academically and mentally (studying constantly makes you a little loopy to say the least). It was fun while it lasted, but I am certainly glad it's over.
My supportive Husband Bret!

So thankful Patty came!
Love you

Katie, Me, and Julie!!!

At the reception - Dad, Bret, Danielle, Mom, Patty

This is most of my class. We had 37 graduates.

We looooooooooooove running! This was my 7th running of the Indianapolis Life Mini Marathon 13.1 miles. And Bret's 1st I believe, although he has done other half marathons. Weather was perfect. We both PRed. And lots of cheerleaders helps - thanks Mom, Dad, Adam, and Nicole!
At the starting line, feeling GOOD!

Bret's working it! This is near the finish line.
My Dad takes the best pictures.
