I read this quote on a blog, "Shabby Chic is defined as 'where one is comfortable, not having to worry about imperfection. Yet, elegant and charming.'" Well, looky there ladies - our Dads and the fathers of our children are "Shabby Chic" by definition! They aren't always perfect but they make us feel comfortable and even as we all age, to us, they are still elegant and charming. And, perfect in all their imperfections.
Three of my best friends lost their Dads this year. Yes, THREE! One, died too young. The other died too quickly, and the last died tragically. My Dad is far away and I miss him. So, be sure to grab those shabby-dads and hubbys and give them lots of love this Father's Day!
