Happy Father’s Day


Hope everyone had a nice Father’s Day weekend.  This is the craft the girls and I made for Steve.  I think he liked it.

We took him to brunch this morning and I made his favorite dinner (stuff shells in this heat – ugh).  It was too hot to go out and do much so we had a pretty quiet weekend.

I’ve been missing my dad a lot this weekend.  I miss him and I miss my girls knowing him.  After 3 1/2 years, I have finally reached a point that I can have photos of him around the house.  I couldn’t before – it made me too sad to see them.  I think I’ve also stopped pretending that he isn’t gone…since I moved away right after he died, I was able to largely live in denial.  Healthy for the mental health professional, no?

From my first wedding because it was such a nice photo:

    Your Dad sounds like a special man. I am sorry he is not here for your girls to get to know.

    You are dedicated to make steve stuffed shells. Sounds like a cold sandwich would have been better!! Wife of the year award nomination submitted!:>)
