Ruby Tuesday ~ graduation reds

We is proud! Our daughter Allegra graduated cum laude Sunday from the University of Hartford. Woo hoo!
You can read about it here, and here. ;-)

We took lots of photos, and I'm going to write one more post about it.

Here she is with her dad the day before graduation at a reception. Notice red balloons in background.

I spotted this floral decoration planted in front of the stage for the festivities ~ the school's colors are red and white.

And this pansy planting has some red in it as well.

And of course the program.

See many more pix featuring a little or a lot of red at Mary T's Work of the Poet.

Oh, that is so special! Love those red balloons and the florals. And the proud Dad, too.

Perfect pictures for Ruby Tuesday! How fortunate that the University of Hartford's colors are red and white - just like Amanda's high school now that I think about it.

Congratulations, Allegra! It takes a lot of work and a bit of smartness to graduate with honors!

Congrats to Mom and Dad too!

Happy RT! Nebraska's and Houston's colors are both the Big Red (and white) too!
