I like to think of inanutshell as a great way not only to share our perspectives and thoughts on a variety of subjects, but also a place to share exciting and special moments in our lives with a wide group. We’ve written posts like this in the past, where we highlight special events and share our sentimental moments. On Wednesday, I had one of those days that I will inevitably remember and cherish for a life time.
If you follow our blog, you know that I recently completed the requirements for my Master’s Degree at Carleton University. Wednesday was my Commencement. Not only special because it recognized my scholastic accomplishments, but because it brought together some of the people that I am most thankful for and most inspired by. And even though I was missing a few people due to distance, they all took the time to congratulate me and celebrate my success from afar.
My ceremony was held on Carleton University’s campus and we had a private celebration at one of my favourite places in Ottawa – Fresco Bistro Italiano on Elgin Street. If you even want to celebrate a special event, I highly recommend this establishment. The food and drinks are to die for, the atmosphere is amazing and the service is always impecible. I was lucky enough to have local photographer, Susan Ganas, come along for the whole day and the photos that she took are so phenomenal that I just HAVE to share them with all our readers.
To all the other graduates who have celebrated this week, I’d like to Congratulate you for all your success and I wish you all the best of luck in the future!
