Happy Father's Day, miss you Dad.

Some photos of my Dad on the beach, his fave place, with his eldest daughter Shea.
Most people don't know that I lost my Dad to a prescription drug and alcohol overdose when I was 20. It changed my life forever. It took years and years to adjust, but I did. Beautiful things came as a result of my experience, I was able to speak to others who found themselves without their parents in their youth as well. I learned how to forgive and let go.
Now I remember all the fun and sweet times. I remember the rhymes my Dad had for pretty much everything! I recall his silly sayings & his constant encouragement of me. I miss him every day. I missed him greatly on my wedding day and I wish he'd had a chance to meet my Mr Woo. I think they would have liked each other a lot. I will miss him when he has grandchildren he'll never meet. But if I ever have a baby boy he'll have my Dad's name.
Happy Father's Day Dad. 

I love you and miss you always, 
Your Baby Girl. x
