cheers to the weekend...

This photo reminds me of the magical day trip that we took to Paris almost 2 years ago for my birthday - we had such a fun time just wandering thru the city, people watching at cafes, taking 
a short nap on a park bench near the Eiffel Tower. Fun times that I will always cherish and never forget!

On the flip side, today is also one of those unforgettable days
that will live in my memory forever - the day that I lost my dad.
It's been 6 years and boy is he missed! So today I will honor him and perhaps even have a cocktail and remember some fun times with him - he was quite the character.  Cheers to the best dad ever!!

Oh Cathi,
It's so sad when we lose our parents and, we miss them so much. I think about mine everyday but, I guess we have to remember all of the good times that we shared with them. I think that a few cocktails are in order today and, I think that I will join you !!
Will be thinking of you today. XXXX

You had me daydreaming about Paris!

People deal with grief in a different way and I think I've somehow managed to be detached to death, well especially when old people die who have lived a good life. But I cannot imagine what it's like to lose one's parents.

Here's to the memory of your father!
