Birthday gifts

August 5th, 2008

When I was little my dad and I would have special days together, just us two.  We always called them our “Father Daughter Days”.  We would just hang out, eat at cool places, sing ridiculous songs, walk around the lakes and rummage through book stores together.

Now that I’m a little older and have three kids of my own, my time is not so available.  So I give “Father Daughter Days” as gifts.  I know, it shouldn’t be a gift, but life is what it is and right now it is crazy.

This past weekend he used the gift certificate I gave him for his birthday, A day of Kayaking and lunch out with Moi

It was one of those moments in time that you didn’t want to let go of.  You didn’t want it to end.  It was beautiful and peaceful and unadulterated time with my dad.

It’s not just the cancer that makes one think these moments need to be special, but it sure makes you appreciate the here and now.  Because all I know, is that I have him here right now.

And what a wonderful day this right now was.

A little something

My dear friend Ellen surprised me with a really fun gift the other day when I was at her house.  She had business cards printed up for me with all my contact information and my three kid’s names.

Needless to say, I love them.  What a perfect way to have your information easily accessible for play dates, coffees or any other reason the CEO of the household may need to get her contact information to someone.

Check out the VistaPrint link.  There are so many choices and you can customize away.  Also, your first 250 are free.

Yesterday I caught up with my Mighty Goods reading and ran across these wonderfully sweet pendants.  It was one of those gifts that I really wanted for myself but found a small handful for some of the girls in my life. 

Check them out; I am sure there is someone in your life that would LOVE one too.
