The picture above was from a really long time ago, I don't even think I could sit up yet, so I'm guessing I was less than six months old. It's kind of interesting my dad is putting a hat on my head, because I absolutely detest hats!!! I love having conversations with my dad. The morning of my wedding, I remember I couldn't sleep (guess I was nervous). I spent the night at my parents house and my dad was up really early, like me. The house was very quiet and he and I sat talking for a couple hours. It was wonderful that he and I were able to have that time together, before my wedding. I loved that he was able to walk me down the aisle.
It was very special. As my dad (and my mom) age, my trips back to Maryland will probably become more frequent. I told my dad that I'm only a plane ride away should he or my mom need me. He still likes to call me his "baby" even though in about a year I'll be 50. If you are still lucky enough to have your dad in your life this Father's Day, then you are truly blessed.
