Happy Father's Day!

I am convinced that I have the best dad in the world. Now, I'm sorry about all you other people out there who don't have my daddy for a dad but I feel for you. :)
My father recently (Well - in April actually. Was it two months ago? Well it feels recent!) took me to a Father / Daughter retreat at Callaway Gardens - which I am still going to post about later - and I had a wonderful time! I was treated like a princess. My daddy held open the doors for me, he helpfully pulled out my chair in the fancy dining room, he escorted me all around the flower gardens and showed me the best angles to take pictures. (I loved of my favorite things is filling up the 400-picture card on my camera with pretty pictures!)
But I'm getting off topic. My Dad cared so much about me that he was willing to spend a whole weekend with me... just him and I. It was a very special time and I hope we can do it again next year.
My dad is a very caring person. He loves us unconditionally, no matter what silly things we do. He is always gentle with my brothers and me, but doesn't hesitate to correct us where we are mistaken. (And believe me, sometimes we need it!) :)
My dad loves to fish. He's fly-fished ever since his boyhood and he's an expert at it. He loves photography - he's especially talented with capturing picturesque little scenes. He is very fond of our chickens...he designed and built our chicken coop all by himself, and it's so nice we joked we should make it into a guest house because it was too nice for a chicken coop! (Picture coming soon...)
Well, I have to go for now...but I just want to say I appreciate my father SO much, and I am so glad he's my dad.


  1. You have an awesome dad Julia!

  7. RYC: (the second one) :o)
    The strawberry pretzel dessert is a pretzel crust, a whippy-dippy, creamy layer, and then strawberries in strawberry jello. It's very good and refreshing!

    Extremely excited, too,
