Daddy-Daughter Summer Date Ideas

As a little girl, one of the fondest memories I have with my dad were when he would take me places by myself.

What Dads Really Want on Father's Day | Baby Chick

Last year was Doug’s first Father’s Day. It was a day I had been prepping for even before we had kids. You see, Doug lost his father as a teenager and every Father’s Day since has been a little hard on him. He’s done an incredible job of celebrating my father, but I can always […]
