My Hero...

A father is always making his baby into a little woman.
And when she is a woman he turns her back again...
-Enid Bagnold

He is my hero.
He is my friend.
He is my father.
I thank God for him every day.
Happy Father's Day!

Besides doesn't he have the best smile?

Love you dad...


  1. Awww, what a sweet post! Your daddy is a handsome man! :-)

  2. Awe how sweet! Your dad looks so cute! Hope you all had a great father's day.

  3. That's awesome Courtney. Looks like you have a great dad! Here's hoping the tide can bring him another championship.

  4. Now I know why you call yourself the Southern Princess. I can hear your Daddy calling it from the back porch. "Hey Princess, time to clean up for supper."

  5. Ahhhhh I love this post. I love the 1st picture. He sounds amazing and he has the sweetest face. I bet he's terribly fun.

  6. Awww thank you all! He is amazing.

    Shannon - yes, he is adorable - so cute ;o) I could not ask for a greater dad.

    Melissa - I think he did, he was surprised by a few of his gifts. My mom and I cooked one of his favorite meals and we just relaxed. So it was good.

    Matt - he is wonderful! Yes let's see if the Tide can bring home back to back! RTR!

    Anne - lol. I was definitely a 'parents' girl. I am lucky to have been close to both parents so as for which one called me Princess more it is a toss up, but yeah we have that back porch, we have those fields where I played and there are those memories of him waving to me or calling me in...I had a lovely childhood. ;o)

    Juju - Aww thanks. We were at Six Flags in that one and I bet I was talking a mile a minute while he tied my shoes. He is amazing and he is as sweet as his countenance portrays! Oh and so much fun - he's a really cool dad. ;o)

  7. What a beautiful post. What great memories and handsome daddy you have. :)

  8. Yes, his smile is pure Alabama sunshine ;-)

    You're lucky to feel that way about your dad. Wish I could.

  9. SJ - thanks. He is handsome. I love his beard. So fun. ;o)

    Wendy - I love it! Pure Alabama sunshine - what a great description.

  10. Aw! He does have the best smile!

    What a great post. Happy Father's Day!

  11. Awww I miss your dad! Hope y'all had a great Father's Day!

  12. After 40yrs, that smile and those blue eyes still make my heart skip a beat and brings a smile to my soul. As a fmily we have been truely blessed to be able to know and love him and have him love us.As a wife, he is my best friend and the center of my life. He is the BEST! Mom
