Personal Notes:
These are simple, sweet and a staple at my family's Holliday gatherings.
Making them on campus with close friends always made residence halls feel like home.

You have been the most incredible boss and mentor I could have asked for during my last year at William & Mary. Thank you so much for all the guidance and support you have provided me and our staff. You are going to do amazing things, I can't wait to hear about them.
