Socialite Saturday!

Happy Fathers Day

Husband is the best Daddy. I don't even think my son's realize it. Husband doesn't want Greye to go to sleep away camp next summer because he's afraid he'll miss him too much.

People have asked me before how I found such a great man to marry. My theory? My Father rocks. Speaking of camp he drove me to and fro every summer. And then wrote me a letter every day. He drove me to college (my mother was skiing in Argentina--not that I blame her). I worship my Father. I'm a total DLG--but not in the "no one will ever be good enough for my little girl," type Daddy. He empowers me, he told me I could do whatever I wanted when I grew up. Even when I was diagnosed with ADD, my father told me I was smart. My Father has always believed in me, and gives me the BEST advice. But don't get too excited he thinks anyone that would marry me (and my clothing habit is asking for trouble) is a fool. After all I was voted "First Divorced" in middle school.

We have a luau today. I'm pretty sure any of my Lilly Pulitzer dresses will do.

This is my adorable nephew Duncan. Little sweetie, I was hugely pregnant with Greye when I first held him. I babysat him when he was 8 weeks old so my SIL could go to a movie. I was so tired after only a few hours--now I feel that tired every day with 2 boys of my own. And the little cutie isn't even upset I named a drunk womanizer after him in my novel.
How do you celebrate Father's Day?

Collars up

    We'll be having a quiet Father's kids around! We'll go on our boat and have a perfect afternoon floating.Have a wonderful celebration of those two guys in your life!!

    When I got married my dad shook my husband's hand, sighed and said, "Good luck son" Hmpfh!

  5. You are so lucky to have such a great dad. Not that many dad's of that generation were that good, meaning mine.
    I am so lucky to have found a good man as well. We are going to my daughters house to celebrate Fathers Day this year.

    Can't wait! You have a good one too.
