I have so much blogging to catch up on, I wasn't sure where to begin. I shall begin with a belated Father's Day post... or at least, a few pictures of my Dad that make me smile so big and a few words about why I really do have the best Dad on earth (seriously, others will agree with me!).

My Dad is kind. To everyone.
My Dad is unpretentious.
My Dad is selfless.
My Dad is humble.
My Dad is smart.
My Dad is super funny.
My Dad makes wicked-good Cinnamon Tea Balls.
My Dad is absolutely genuine.
My Dad bakes bread and takes it to widows who are his patients who have become his friends.
My Dad has great taste in music.
My Dad is an amazing example and a hero to many (though I'm his biggest fan).
My Dad is one of my best friends, and I love him more than words on a page (or blog) can express.

I'm so grateful that I was able to spend Father's Day this year with my Father. And my Father's Father. And the Father of my children. And my beautiful son, who will someday be a really wonderful Father. It was I who got the gift this year.
