Here’s to My Amazing Daughter A GRADUATION AND A WEDDING

must have really killed it, because Bryen saw her from the crowd and was taken with her from that moment on. Unfortunately, the poor guy was so bashful that he didn’t work up the nerve to ask her out until May! When he finally did, she

May is going to be a full month of amazing, life-changing events for my family. Alison and I are getting ready to fly out to Indiana to see our daughter graduate from veterinary school. You may remember my story from a few issues back about how stressed Audriana was to take the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE) — the veterinary equivalent of the bar exam. I’m happy to report that she passed with flying colors! Now Audriana is stressing out over which of two really great job offers she’s going to accept. Audriana will graduate from the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine on May 12. Then, on May 25, she and her fiancé, Bryen, will get married here in Connecticut. I did say we had a full month ahead of us. I’m still a little shocked that we’re planning a wedding so soon. Audriana was never the kind of girl who had many boyfriends in high school. She had better things to do and she was smart enough to know boys are pretty dumb at that time of their lives. But I always told her she didn’t need to worry about that kind of stuff yet; God had something planned for her and somewhere out there, she’d find the perfect person. I’ll admit that I didn’t expect her to find that perfect person during a rap battle at vet school! In November of Audriana’s sophomore year at Purdue, the school put on a talent night in the common area of the student union. Audriana got up and performed in a lip- sync rap battle of an Eminem song. She

happily said yes. They went out for coffee and had a nice time, so they kept seeing each other. But because Bryen waited so long to ask her out, summer vacation came just a few weeks later and they had to go their separate ways. Audriana came back to Connecticut that summer and they decided to have a long- distance relationship. Every night, I came home after work to find them talking on the phone for hours! This was probably good for their relationship, because it forced them to develop a deeper connection. Of course, Audriana still gives him a hard time about waiting six months before speaking to her. Bryen insists he talked to her before asking her out — once. “You were standing in line behind me at the bookstore and I said hi!” he claims.

“I honestly couldn’t be prouder of her.”

Bashfulness aside, Bryen is a great guy. He attended Purdue to be a vet, too. Bryen
