Happy Father’s Day

To all of the dad’s out there, whether you have children of your own, or you are a step-dad, or a daddy to your fur babies, have a great Happy Father’s Day.  You deserve the best and today is your day to kick back and relax.  There are two great dad’s in my life.  My own daddy, who sadly passed away 12 years ago, and my husband, who is the best Daddy Dog out there.  I love you both.

I apologize for the poor quality of these pictures.  They are old pictures, and are pictures of pictures.  My dad was a life-long sailor.  He left Melbourne, Australia shortly after WWII, with the Merchant Marines, and sailed with the Merchant Marines his whole life.

This is my daddy in his Australian Army uniform right before leaving for North Africa.  Can you believe he was only 14 at this time?  This was in 1939.


The sea was a huge part of his life.  This is my favorite picture of my daddy.  I had given him a gift certificate to sail an old fashioned cutter ship along the Southern California Coast.  We had a blast.  I think this was one of his favorite days too.


This is my mom and dad on my graduation day from Culinary School.  My mom passed away 16 months before my dad.  They are both in Heaven, watching over me.  I miss them both so much.


This is the other great dad in my life.  He’s not my daddy, but he is the Daddy Dog to our fur babies.  Daddy Dog, Lucie and Vinnie are all cheering for their team, The Denver Broncos.

Happy Father’s Day to all the great dad’s out there.

  1. Simply charming! Love the photos of your parents. It doesn’t matter how long they’ve been gone, you will always miss them. Also, what gorgeous dogs you have.
