“He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.” ~Clarence Budington Kelland
When I was growing up my father wasn’t really in the picture but I had a grandpa who was there. My grandpa died when I was young but I remember his gentle loving spirit. He was a quiet hard-working man of great character and this quote reminded me of him.
I watch my son with his son and it’s so beautiful to experience the love that these two people share for one another. Orion loves his mom and dad like crazy and I’m so honored to be a part of their lives.
Happy Father’s Day to my son Arian and to all you dads out there!!

Have a stupendous day!!😘
“Never let anyone dampen your spirit. Just because they say “it can’t be done” doesn’t mean you can’t do it!! Trust yourself!” ~Bold Blind Beauty
Remember, they have no vested interest in you if they don’t know the real you or understand your capabilities! Keep on being you, there’s no one else in the world like you.
I do not know your name –
Nor for which battle you died.
I do not know your home,
Nor the tears that were cried.
I do not know where you rest –
Nor the promise broken.
I do not know your uniform,
And your fears lay unspoken.
But, I know your spirit exists –
That your courage is admired,
And your sacrifice is honored
By each soul that’s inspired.
And I offer you from my heart,
Thank you, to guardians unknown,
For offering yourselves for all of us,
That we may keep freedom…
