Jeff graduated summa cum laude from Washington University’s School of Law on Friday.
I am so freaking proud of my handsome, smart husband that I don’t even have words.
(I’ll try to find some words, no worries).
For three years, I watched this dashing, brilliant man work his ass off, to get where he is today*. He worked ridiculously hard in class, was an editor on the Law Review, worked for WU’s Environmental Law clinic, TA’d for a terrific faculty member, found two awesome summer associateship/internship opportunities, got hired as a federal judicial clerk for after graduation (and then an associate at a firm for after that), and managed to do it all while staying in the top 1% of his class.
(He got named recognition from the dean during the ceremony!)
And did I mention that he did all this while teaching and tutoring LSAT prep, playing Skyrim, occasionally washing a load of dishes, dealing with a hyperactive dog, taking glamorous international vacations, and putting up with me?
(I am in one picture from the day, and I look like a flippin’ beached whale in 3 1/2″ heels.)
Yes, that devastatingly attractive, clever gentleman above has managed to do it all. BECAUSE HE’S JEFF-FREAKIN’-HOOPS, GUYS.
So really, making him a celebratory cheesecake was the *least* I could do.
(After the ceremony we had a lovely family get-together, hosted by Jeff’s cousins. It was the perfect way to wrap up an awesome day.)
I love you Jeff, and I’m so proud of you I could just squeeze you until your head pops off. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEZE.
*”where he is today” actually = “sitting at home prepping for the Virginia bar.” THE MAN NEVER TAKES A BREAK.
