Happy Father's Day

  • Print

There is tons to celebrate this weekend in my family, and I wanted to be sure to send my love to the two people who brought me into this world--my parents--who just recently celebrated their 30th Wedding Anniversary!

Happy Birthday Mom! Sending you lots of love, hugs and kisses on your special day!

And this Sunday, is Father's Day. Hopefully you have already planned ahead and bought your Dad the perfect gift, but if not, FOX 47 has got all your gift ideas covered. From the basics to some more creative items--be sure to check them out here.

Sure new gadgets, tools, and golf clubs can be awesome presents for Dad, but you don't always have to shell out loads of cash to show Dad that he is your No. 1.

Ever since I can remember, Father's Day consisted of waking up before Dad and 'surprising' him with breakfast in bed--little did we know that he always knew what we were up to; it's always the thought that counts. My favorite present to give my Dad was a homemade card equip with coupons, from mowing the lawn to washing his car to packing his lunch for work, I always thought that that was the ultimate gift to give. Nothing says 'I love you' like something that comes from the heart and that holds sentimental value.

So, instead of spending tons of money on Dad this Father's Day, switch it up and try something new. Do something special and meaningful. Send him a picture frame with the two of you in it. Have his favorite food or drink delivered at work. Take time on the weekend to visit your Dad and make him his favorite dinner. And the easiest--even if you aren't very crafty--make him a card.

No matter what you choose to buy or give, remember to give thanks to your Dad this weekend and all he has sacrificed for you.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there, and especially to mine--Dad you are my No. 1 and I am the luckiest daughter in the world! Thank you for everything you have done, and continue to do for me! 

To the Best Parents in the World!
Happy Birthday Mom and Happy Father's Day Daddio! 

Yours in a celebratory weekend,
