Happy Dad's Weekend ...


Love that both Eric and my dad surf and sometimes together.

What can I say? I have the best dad and so do my kids. My dad taught me so many things that I attest to my occasional successes in life. As a kid he used to always tell me "nothing in life is guaranteed." I used to hate it! It sounded so pessimistic, but of course now I get it. He also told me never to cry at work (I wonder if he knows Kelly Cutrone?). And when I'd get slide tackled in soccer, my mom would practically waive for an ambulance while my dad would help me up, brush me off and nudge me back in the game.

As for my husband Eric, I am so happy that P has a father like him to give her the proper guidelines when it comes to her future choices in relationships (much like I did). And I'm so happy that K has such incredible role models in both Eric and my dad in regards to being a responsible, loving, young man. We are truly blessed to have these men in our lives!

I hope everyone has a great weekend! We are on the brink of summer, can you believe it?! Group hug:)

Aww, super sweet!! :) I love these days when we can take the time to appreciate how amazing our parents are :)
Looks like you hit the jackpot when it comes to dads in your life :)
Have a wonderful weekend celebrating!!

(P.S. I LOVE that your husband & son surf together...my bf and his brother grew up surfing with their dad too, and it's become that bond throughout their lives :)

This is so amazing, it made me want to cry... I am spending one more Father;s day away from my dad, it is so hard but just knowing he is there comforts me.
thanks for sharing!

I was contemplating a surf this morning - swell's tiny and its freezing cold (winter in cape town!) - but this post made me want to get out there regardless. Thank you! x
