For my final 10 on 10, I’m breaking a few rules; in fact, I’m breaking all of them. There are more than ten photos, and they weren’t taken on the same day. Honestly, if it’s that big a deal, please turn me in to the 10 on 10 police. Pretty sure that the fine will be worth it since I decided to use the photos from my daughters’ college graduation. On May 16, 2013, Jordan and Shelby graduated from Temple University, and I couldn’t be prouder of them. They have done things I never thought possible, and I can’t wait to see what they do in the future. The photos are blurry and I didn’t capture every moment, but I don’t care. Some are casual, some are “Christmas card pose worthy,” and some are just because. Because at its essence it was about the girls, their accomplishments, and the family who got them there. After you’re done here, head on over to the lovely Laura Louise and see what she did on her day.

PS – A year ago, I decided that I needed another photography project and so I joined a bunch of very, very talented photographers (of which I truly am not) to be part of the 10 on 10. And while I’m not continuing for the next year, I hope that you keep coming back to the other participants to see what they have created. It’s been a blast!
