A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my gma and how she has been a huge influence in my life. I’m also blessed to have wonderful parents. With Father’s Day this weekend, I though it would be great to have a giveaway based on that.
The giveaway item will be a stash of fat quarters. Not sure what they are until Friday, sorry. My quilt store is having Fat Quarter Frenzy starting on Friday. I’m going to create a great set just for my readers.
Here’s the rules:
- Leave a comment on a story about your Dad, Grandpa, Uncle, whomever has been important between now and Sunday.
- My coworkers will pick their favorite one on Monday morning.
- A winner will be announced on Monday afternoon.
I’ll go first.
My husband notes that I’m oddly like my father. Some days he even calls me “Danny”, especially when my temper comes out. Without my father though, I would not be the strong woman I am today. He taught me to stand up for myself and what’s right.
One of my favorite memories of him was many years ago. It’s so simple, yet so him. It’s a Saturday morning and my mom is making breakfast. Dad and I are gearing up for the day and listening to the radio. A song comes on it’s the one that starts off, “A Har Har Har” guitar rift. He busted out an air guitar and blasts the music. It was like he was a teenager again. Hilarious!!
Here is a photo of my dad and I at my wedding. He was an emotional mess and loss a bet. It was a $100 bet on if he would cry befor handing me off to my hubby. He so did and he paid up at the reception.
