Well, Culinary school is over! I thought that I would be ecstatic....... Don't get me wrong, I am so happy, but a part of me is a little sad. I met some wonderful people and great friends that I am really going to miss. We became this great big family.... so it's a little sad. It seemed like it was never going to end, during that first month, but the last couple of months flew by. I can't believe it is over. I finished my externship on Friday. I was training under Chef Patrice Calliot, who might I add, is a World Pastry Champion. I learned so much there and am so grateful I was able to learn from him. He is an awesome Chef! I just thought I would show you some pictures from the last day we were physically in the school on the day of "Glory Walk". I can't believe I am a Chef. Crazy, Never would have thought that. One thing is, I am glad that I will be able to spend some needed time with my family now that school is over. I am so grateful to them for thier patience while I was earning my degree.

I just checked my grades and my overall grade point average is a 3.74. I am excited! Actual graduation walk is in May.

You Go Girl! What a fantastic slide show of your chef family! I am sure they felt the same way on graduation day. With every good end to a chapter in your life, it opens the door to write another great chapter with some characters staying the same. I am grateful I have been able to see you close that chapter. Happy New Year!

Wow, Kendal is so insightful!

Congrats! I know you worked hard and you're such a great chef. I think it's perfect for you. Too bad you have to wait so long to have the graduation ceremony though.
