Oh how I love MY dad and MY husband beyond measure. Let’s be real, it would take an entire post to go into detail about them…which I will at some point. But I will just say, if you are blessed with wonderful men in your life, remind them more than once a year! It truly is a blessing from God to have great men surrounding you and your family…don’t ever take it for granted!
Until next time!
