Happy Father's Day


This is one of my favorite pictures. My husband shaking my dad's hand in a promise to love me and take care of me forever the way my dad always has. There is something really romantic and old fashioned about that. The picture reminds me of the line from one of my favorite songs by Ty Herndon. "There's a daddy walking his daughter down the aisle. Fighting back tears and forcing a smile. Oh, For 22 (27-yikes!) years he's watched her grow. A man holding on to a woman letting go."

We're practicing for the big day!

I'm sorry that I won't be with my dad in Richmond to celebrate with him on father's day. I'll be in Virginia, but the opposite side of the state. He is one of the most incredible men I have ever met. He is so smart and strong yet thoughtful and compassionate. He is dedicated and passionate about many things and has won numerous awards for his career achievements. But no matter how many commitments or obligations he had he never missed a swim meet or school play. He is truly amazing at many things but especially at being a dad.
