YOUNG COLLEGE AND HIGH SCHOOL GRADS: THEIR FUTURE'S SO BRIGHT....THEY OUGHTA WEAR SHADES!!!!
It has definitely been more than several years since I myself took that long awaited walk with my classmates in our caps and gowns, to get our well deserved (or not so well deserved) high school diplomas. You could feel the energy of all these highly pumped up teens, some with such great plans for their futures and others who just planned on going to the beach everyday that summer. Nonetheless, we were all on top of the world!
My home is situated about 2 blocks from the local high school and this is the one time of year that we actually enjoy all the parking and activity that takes place at the end of the school year! Families, flowers, balloons, cameras, conversations of dinner plans, party plans, etc... Then there are those kids who are going all out to leave one last impression by wearing an over-sized hat, a boa, a crazy over-sized necktie or whatever they can find to leave that lasting memory and make their very last day unforgettable. I remember there being kids like this at my own graduation day! We moved to this neighborhood when my son was only 3 years old, and this year, YOU GUESSED IT…he will be joining his friends and classmates as they graduate from this high school as the Class of 2017!! So bitter-sweet and so very proud!
I recently sold three pairs of shades to someone for a graduation gift for their daughter and her two best friends to do their final high school walk!! They custom ordered these to be made with their school colors and are apparently quite the hit already!! It's this kind of flamboyance that I love to see from these young, bold, confident and eager young adults that fully comprehend that the world is their oyster and their future is SOOO BRIGHT!! I only hope they remember to add a fabulous hat and magnificent boa to their fabulous shades!
ALL THE BEST TO THE CLASS OF 2017!!!
MAY YOUR DAYS ALWAYS BE SUNNY AND BRIGHT!!!
