steph took a ton of pics of my dad and i in december…. i LOVE them 😉 i'm sooo lucky to have such a talented photographer for a friend 😉 and i love that i look at them and see how much i do look like my dad 😉 after MANY years…. of avoiding how much i look like my mom.. it makes me feel good!
yesterday was jimbo's birthday… it worked out that i was teaching at absolutely everything, so we met in newburyport for dinner…. it was nice to catch up and spend time together… we even cheated and had dessert… my dad's diabetes isn't getting better with the med change.. and the doctor needs to figure out what to do next….
i realized driving home how lucky i am to have him for a dad…. he gave me the space i needed to become ME. but yet.. he taught me and continues to teach me more then can be described…. i think we have some dates set aside where he'll come down to the island for a couple days.. meet mister harley etc… i look forward to that!
