Don't Stop Believin'

I'm officially an Auburn graduate and I really can't believe it. The last three days have been full of tears, boxes, and very sad goodbyes. But on the bright side, I had a great couple of days with my family and Fletcher in town.

We have lived together for four years and been best friends for twice as long. Leaving the Beach House and knowing in two weeks that we will not only not be living under the same roof, but that we will not even be living in the same states is more sadness then I can handle.

A picture of the right side of the house. Took us two years to take a horizontal picture together for the frame that has been sitting empty in the bathroom for the last two years!

Over the last two years we have done so much together and the last three days were full of tears as we packed up our boxes and spent our last days and nights together as roommates.

Fletcher took off work so that he could be at graduation. It was so fun to spend time together with him and my family.

My sweet mom who made it possible for me to go to Auburn and live in the Beach House and have everything that I grew to love so much these last four years.

Everybody got to come except for Rob and Frank!

Even Ev made the trip! Traveling across four states is quite the adventure for a three week old baby! But she did great!

The title of this post is probably cheesy, but I'm in a very sentimental mood. Today I listened to Don't Stop Believin' in the car and it made me smile as I thought of all the memories I had with my friends in Auburn over the last few years. I picture us all belting out "It goes on and on and on and on..." with all six of us crammed into one car...driving home from dinner at Laredo's. And it makes me think of Sarah singing out as she walks around the house. And when I listen to it I know that we are going to still be the best of friends. So here's to believing in Auburn and believing in the Beach House.

  1. Hi Stephanie,
    I am a Senior Designer at The Auburn Plainsman. We are working on a graduation flier and I saw the picture of your friends in front of the Auburn sign. It is a perfect look at Auburn's graduates. I was wondering then if I could have your permission to use the picture in our flier.
    If you have any questions please e-mail me at

    Thank you so much !
