Happy Monday folks!! This weekend I got to not only attend a graduation party, but also take pictures at Rupali’s graduation party!! Her grad party was the same day that she went to walk across the stage, turn her tassel to the other side, and become an OFFICIAL alumna of TJHSST’s Class of 2017!!!!! 😀 She celebrated the occasion with her friends from school and family friends in a red & black, CMU themed backyard graduation party! They had set up a humongous white tent filled with fans, tables & chairs on the sunny summer afternoon, a DJ booth playing great music, a moon bounce for kids of all ages to enjoy (I may have jumped around a bit), and of course great Indian food AND the best mango peach cake you could ever try!!!

Scroll down for speeches, beautiful cake pops & lots of friends!! 🙂 Also a shout out to anyone who took any of the photos that I was in as well!

Thank you to the Dhumne family for being such great family friends over the years and for a wonderful graduation party to kick off the summer! I can’t wait to hear all about Rupali going off to CMU in the fall and all the big things she’ll do there (including hopefully adding to the group of Marathi bhangra dancers hehe)!! Arjun, you’re next up man!!
