***I know that this Father's Day post is super-early, but I wanted to go ahead and post it in case anyone wanted to send it to their loved ones that are deployed overseas. *****
I don't identify with the idea of ties for Father's Day - at all.
My dad never wore ties growing up and my husband never wears them either. However, I can identify with BDU's. My father and husband are both military veterans and that makes me super proud!
My Dad has always been very firm, but also has a very soft side. One of my fondest memories of him growing up was when I played Beth in the play "Little Women". During my death scene, my dad began to bawl like a little girl. Not exactly what you would expect from a military man! At the end, all he could say to me was, "Don't ever do that to me again!"
My Dad has always been there for me and I am quite fortunate to have him. He has always encouraged me to follow my dreams no matter what. I am thankful to have a Dad that truly believed in me. So, this is what inspired me to come up with this subway art. I have made it available in three different sizes. The only thing I ask is that you please become a subscriber to this blog before downloading it.
This one is for my first blogging friend, Jen from Frazzled Five! A special "Army Mom" version.
I changed the wording up a little to be more "momish". I also changed "My Hero" to "My Inspiration"- quite frankly because I do not like the way "My Heroine" sounds and because I do not want the "Grammar Police" to come and get me.
