Happy Father Day!

Hey Friends! This week is in celebration of our dad's!  Yayyy!  Oh gosh, and you know how much I adore my dad!!!!  He's a very inspiring person in my life, teaching me the most important things ... such as "Enjoy life everyday."  He's such a wonderful person, he has not a single unkind thing to say and he sees the beautiful things in life ... always.

The last time my parents came out here to visit us in May, he told my little 3 year old, "Ohhhh it's such a BEAUTIFUL day!  Look at the trees, and the grass, the flowers, the sun ... aren't we so lucky to see such beauty?!"  And my little one LOVES his Grandpa and readily agreed.

Now even a month later, my little boy will say, "Oh mommy, it's such a BEAUTIFUL day!  The trees, the flowers, the grass ... it's beautiful!"  And the first thing that comes to my mind is, "I love you dad .. for teaching my son to voice the sweet simple, yet extraordinary things in life."

So this card goes to my special one of a kind dad:
