My Daddy!


Join me for a Walk Down Memory Lane...if you would like to join just click above!

Apparently while I was too busy having an emotional breakdown on Father's Day I failed to mention how thankful I am to have all the father's in my life.

My Dad and I have not always had the best relationship, I think for most of my life we just simply tolerated each other, but baseball, country music and our love for reading has always been our link to each other.

When my Dad would come and visit on Sunday's we always spent the majority of the day playing baseball in my grandma's back yard. Not that it was much a game considering there were only 3 players but it alway seemed like the best days. One of the best memories would be me attempting to catch a baseball with my eye and ending up with the red thread marks indenting into my face and having a great story to tell at school on Monday.

Most of my favorite Dad memories would be the trips to and from Cleveland. While we were on summer vacation we always spend weekends and long weeks up in Cleveland with my Dad and Step Mom. Although and hour and a half is no long venture it used to seem that way as a child but we used to crank up my Dad's Garth Brooks "tapes" (wow I am old) and sing at the top of our lungs...best times ever and now we do the same with the little kids just with the modern day CD.

But by far the best gift and memory my Dad has given me is yet to come...the day he gets to walk me down the aisle and dance with me at my wedding(whenever that day may come) will be such an emotional day for the both of us as it is a day I look forward to and a day I think he hopes will never come. Although my Dad does have a 4 year old and a 24 year old daughter I will forever and always be my Dad's little girl, and although we might not always see eye to eye I know he is proud of me and loves me very much.

Happy Father's Day (a little late)!
