Graduation is COMING for many high school and college seniors – – including this college gal. Time flies. I want to remember this season of life for its growth and perspective – – embracing that my strength comes from the Lord alone. He is the pioneer and perfecter of faith. He goes before me. He is my home no matter where I go. He has also placed specific people in my path along the way who lovingly and relentlessly point me back to Him. I am pressing into these friendships that have been a constant thread throughout my college life – – and prayers that they continue long after! The gals toting around Austin Tall Tote in the graduation collection are some of these friends! Beyond thankful for my business school pals. I love how we have been able to encourage one another through our work in business school, and the even greater work God is doing!
It’s crazy how our conversations have evolved over the past 4 years from taking our first college classes and figuring out how to live in a shoebox dorm room, to job interviews and looking ahead to life post-grad. I’m holding onto these days, but excitedly cheering these gals on for the days to come. Even though we can’t see exactly how every detail will look, we can encourage each other with the comfort that God goes before us. He works for His glory and our good, for those who love and trust and follow Him. If you’re in this graduation boat too, I hope you find these words resonate well with you. We don’t need to see the entire staircase. These days are just the first step. Step boldly!
I believe that a good tote bag can take you good places. Austin Tall Tote is one of those bags. I’ve carried it to many college classes, and now I’m excited to carry it with me on the job as a (finally) full-time business owner. Sure, I might be a wee little bit biased, but my heart skips a beat every time I see someone carrying that tote with their own purpose. Take that tote to your job interview, first day of work, new church Bible study, lunch with a co-worker, on your much needed weekend trip, and everywhere in between. Or if you’re graduating high school, take Austin Tall Tote to college or whatever adventure is ahead. Grad gals need a tote they can take everywhere they go! (insert perfect graduation gift!!)

So let the graduation countdown begin! Less than 50 days for a lot of us in senior year land…here we go! The photo below was taken in front of the Brock School of Business – – the very place that gave soil to the foundational seeds of Winnefred Austin. I am so grateful for the many days spent in this place preparing for life outside these walls. In every chapter coming to a close, a new beginning is near!
