Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there!  Sadly, my father is no longer with me, but his memory continues to live within mine and I take it everywhere I go.  And thankfully...I am a "chip off the old block".  It's funny; all my life I was told I looked just like my father...and as a young girl, I always felt a little bit insulted because I thought maybe they were insinuating that I looked like a man.  I know better now; much better...I actually find it comforting when I look in the mirror.  You see, I don't just have his hair color and his features and many of his personality traits...but I have his eyes and there are times that I feel like I am looking into his instead of mine.  I miss him every single day.  I was and always will be his "Turkish Delight" (which is a type of candy, in case you didn't know).  Happy Father's Day Dad!

This morning, it is gorgeous, pleasant and breezy and a top 10 kind of day here.  For breakfast, I made myself an egg and white cheddar sandwich on nutty-grainy toast (Arnold's Health Nut Bread, one of my favorites for toast) and a cup of Donut Shop coffee and ate it outside on the patio in the secret myself.  It was a peaceful and calming way to start the day.  I snapped a couple of pics below.  Enjoy!
