Heidi’s Graduation!

So my little sister Heidi, has graduated university with a First Class Honours Degree and I couldn’t be more proud of her.

I cannot believe how quickly those 4 years have gone. I remember her first day like it was yesterday, car filled full of all her stuff and Heidi, myself, mum and dad squeezed in between it all, ready to send her off into her new adventure.

^^ Look at the difference 4 years makes!

Heidi had always wanted to go to university and couldn’t wait to get there and experience it all. I never went so unfortunately couldn’t give her any advice or crazy stories, but I knew she wouldn’t need all that anyway. She quickly settled in, made loads of friends and joined every society going! 😉 …

Over the 4 years, from the stories I’ve heard and pictures I’ve seen, it seems like she had the best time ever and was everything she hoped it would be and more…

Who knew one girl could have so many dresses?! Does she ever wear the same thing twice?! ;-P

So when graduation day finally came around, I knew it was going to be filled with mixed emotions for her.

Matt and I drove from ours and met my parents at Heidi’s Uni. My mum was so excited and they both couldn’t wait to see her graduate. Heidi worked so hard for this and the last few months had been super stressful and crazy for her, so we were so glad it had all paid off when she was awarded a first class degree, she most definitely deserved it!

The morning flew by with Heidi collecting her cap & gown, professional photos being taken and having one last walk around the grounds before she officially left as a graduate. It was a beautiful day and made the perfect backdrop for all the photos!

There’s always time for a selfie…

We had lunch in the sunshine and a quick walk by the lake, before making our way to the Cathedral for the ceremony.

The ceremony wasn’t actually too long, although my hands did start to ache from all the clapping! And then it was finally Heidi’s turn…

After all the formal parts had taken place, we all made our way outside for the fun bit..

We then spent quite a while following Heidi around being her private photographer at every moment 😉

Finally, we got to enjoy the treats inside the huge marquee. Jazz music, canapés, soo many chocolate fountains and unlimited prosecco and pimms. We all ‘cheersed’ Heidi and enjoyed the hazy summer evening together.

I still can’t believe my little sister is all grown up, graduated from uni and now living in Bristol, starting the next chapter of her life. But I am so ridiculously proud and happy for her. I know that whatever she wants to achieve, she will easily do so 🙂

And to everyone else who graduated this year..Congratulations! and Here’s to your next step!
