Hello to my beautiful followers. I couldn’t appreciate more that you are here and reading my post. This is just going to be a brief one but I wanted to take a moment to wish you a Happy Father’s Day. I want you to know how much I cherish that you are sharing my life with me. I hope you have an opportunity to spend time with your father and the dads in your life. If not, I sincerely hope you can take an opportunity to remember those you can’t be with. Our memories are always there for us.
My daddy is going to be 75 this year. He looks fantastic but I have to say (and dad, if you’re reading this…) he sure has gotten grumpy! But that’s okay we love him grumpy and all. I’m so fortunate he is healthy and close to us. My children have an opportunity to really know him. My daddy-in-law is a wonderful, caring man and he’s a bit farther away in California. We don’t get to see him as often. We will be thinking of him and call him to remind him that we love him. My mom’s birthday was just a couple days ago so we are doing a Father’s Day and birthday celebration with the family in Phoenix. I’m cooking so I’ll be going to bed soon and getting up early to take care of odds and ends. OK, make that real soon, it’s almost 1AM.
I have a photo album from when my parents were in Europe in 1968. Summer of 68 – A legendary summer! I thought I’d share a photo of my dad. He’s still really handsome too. He has aged so well. This is one of my favorite photos. It was taken in Greece or Italy and he’s 28. I wasn’t born yet.
I have a busy day tomorrow. First Einstein’s (Got to get my toasted wheat bagel with Nutella). Next, I will be doing my grocery shopping for dinner and packaging up Father’s Day gifts and somehow I’ve got to get my nails done too!
Father’s Day Menu (simple & delicious)
My family loves Mexican cooking and we all collect Mexican art. So, we’ve got a Mexican menu lined up!
- Cheese enchiladas with green sauce
- Chicken and cheese enchiladas with red sauce
- Lime and cilantro white rice
- Sauteed zucchini, corn, and tomatoes (Mexican style)
So, that’s my busy day tomorrow. If I seem MIA, well, you know I’m running around like a mad woman trying to get all the things done that I should have done today but chose to nap instead.
Have a wonderful Sunday and Happy Father’s Day!
Lots of Love,
