Weekend Reads: Father's Day
I really loved the above Facebook post this week. It was calm, and true, and hit me deeply when I saw it. Christina Rosetti and Eric Carle, what a combination. Hope your weekends are full of love and wonder.
On Sunday, I'm celebrating Father's Day with my dad. I'm making him (and mom) dinner--from a kit I got in Rome! I can't wait to celebrate. Last year I made an effort to call my dad way more. He's not the type to pick up the phone and just ask how life is, so I have to be proactive about it. I call him most nights on my way home from work. I have bad reception in my apartment, so it's the perfect time to chat. I'm so glad that I've been doing that because it means we've had some fun chats and I get to hear his golf score, his latest thoughts on the news, news about the family. How do you stay in touch with family members you don't live with?
