What a weekend!

Denaye and David began their happily ever after this weekend. They threw an entire weekend of festivities to kick it all off. We were exhausted when we came home, but we had a fantastic time.

It was nice to see so many of my high school classmates and meet their spouses. These are just a few of us.

I've learned something?! Hey, I've learned something!

In case it's not obvious from the lack of blogging, the past month has been absolutely crazy around our house. Tonight is a temporary calm before three final weeks of madness, which include a pretrial brief, Denaye's wedding weekend, oral argument, one last outline, and two exams.

Anyway, I was inspired to post by a comment George just made to me. He agreed to proofread a brief for me and found himself struggling due to its technical nature. At the end, he said, "well, dear, you have learned a lot in three years." It took me a couple seconds before I agreed that, yes, I have learned a great deal in the past three years.

With the end so near, I often find myself reflecting on the many changes over the last three years - both personally and professionally. Hopefully I'll have some time after finals and before graduation to share some reflections with you. For now, I'll just say that I can confirm that law school is a very formative experience.
