A month later, Austin was celebrating his graduation from LSU. To celebrate, we went out to dinner at the same place we had our first date. I gave him a gift—a pair of silver Prada sunglasses, along with a card:
I know you’ve been waiting and ready to graduate for a long time and I hope it’s everything you wished it would be.
The decisions you have to make are stressful, but always remember to do what’s going to make you the happiest. I know wherever you end up—you’re going to be great, you are so driven and hard-working. It will pay off!
Best of luck, in all that comes your way, Prada.
Thanks for all the great memories.
