All kidding aside

I just wanted to say how proud I am of Chris finishing his Masters in Communications. He's a modest guy so I know he wouldn't toot his own horn (I on the other hand...), so I'm taking the opportunity to publicly thank him for all his hard work. He had his share of late nights and long hours but I seriously never heard him complain. The guy's amazing and his thesis committee said he was the model that they wished every grad student would follow. He's the only one of his group that graduated on schedule. When he received the results from his department exam (really the only exam of his program, therefore they are pretty tough), the only comment he had was "excellent work." Most grad students have to retake parts- but not Chris, just excellent work from him the whole two years. His professors loved him and mentioned on more than one occasion how dependable he was and how they knew he'd always produce quality work.

So after two years, I'm looking forward to the next phase of our life together. I know that the past two years is a great indicator of what we have ahead of us and I couldn't be more excited. Thanks Chris, and congrats!
