Fourth of July cooking

I was looking for pictures of dad and me so I could put it on a mug since he’s a big coffee drinker. Found some really old pictures from my childhood. No matter how old I get, I’m still his baby girl and he’s still my hero. I got to spend Father’s Day with my dad after work. We don’t spend much time together anymore, but I love my dad for everything he has sacrificed to make sure my siblings, my nephew and myself everything we needed. My dad was in the army for 21 years, he also worked and still works for the government and drives over an hour (there were jobs that were over two) away for work. As a kid, he always made time for me even when he was exhausted from long hours at work. My love of reading and research comes from his influence in my life. I don’t tell him much how much I appreciate him out how much I love him. I wish I was a kid again. I really miss when I was a kid and I was attached to his belt loop lol. Love you Dad.

So my best friend needed to get away from the city, she invited me to just hang out since she was in my neck of the woods. It’s been a long time since we’re just walked and talked on the promenade. It was like when we were kids. We shared or hopes and dreams there, we partied like rock stars, shared ideas, created poetry and stories,vented frustrations, spent birthdays and it was our meeting space. No matter how far we get from this place, it always seems to draw us back in. We created memories here, and it’s a part of our souls. I’m sure in like twenty years, it will still our meeting place, our original point of origin.
