Hello and happy Saturday to you!

I’d like to wish all of the dads out there a very Happy Father’s Day. And a great big hug to any dads who have lost children, any of you who have lost your father, those suffering through strained relationships, those yearning to be fathers, and those who have happily remained childless.

I often wonder what my dad would be like nowadays, at 66 years old. He passed away at 45, but I think he would still be full of life today, a jokester and prankster, making my boys laugh and giggle, and keeping active walking and playing golf.

Wishing you a wonderfully peaceful weekend, xo.
