Father's Day

Dan and Grace at Disney in May.

My Dad and little Grace (age 2).

I'm very blessed to have my own father still in my life. He's 78 and is relatively healthy, except for some arthritis and a bit of a hearing loss. He's active (he plays golf and swims often). I'm a Daddy's girl and Grace is too so I completely understand that wonderful relationship between a father and daughter. My Dad has been an example of how all fathers should be to their children, strong, loving, non judgemental, and always there for his children and Grandchildren. He's also one of the funniest people I know. My husband Dan is quite similar in many ways, so I suppose in a way I did marry a man very much like my dad. I wouldn't have it any other way. Dan is my rock. He is a man of God, and a generous person with his time to everyone he meets. He's an amazing father to Nick and Grace and he will be the same to little Will. Both Dan and my father also have some of the biggest hearts of any person I've ever met. Happy Father's Day to the fathers in my life...I love you so much!
