I share stories of my dad freely. I'll tell you whatever you want to know but, only when I'm asked. My dad's stories are not typical, they are more juicy than any drama you'll see at the theater. Myself, an amazing mom and two of my best friends (that would be my bro and sis) lived what could be your favorite summer novel.
My Dad was hard not to love. Charismatic, full of life, laughter and play. We played hard, time was of the essence; being the only ones on the lake by 6a.m. for water smooth as glass, the first in the parking lot at Snow Basin, or the first to breakfast on a Cruise ship?!!!!!!
Some say I am the "party queen" I have been since I was a teenager. Somehow I am willing, able and ready for fun with only a moments notice. This is my favorite part of me, it is who I am. Although I have to ground myself frequently that spirit and desire runs through my veins. It is the greatest treasure I'll always carry in my heart, from my dad. There are only a few surviving characters from the epic novel written by Ivanhoe. Like any good read, each of us has chosen our favorite parts to remember. Together we are better, definitely stronger, and more amazing human beings than we would have been without him. Thanks Dad!
