A Weekend to Celebrate!!

There was a ton of things to celebrate this weekend. The most obvious is that it's Father's Day!! He has been so loving & supportive throughout my life and I could not be happier to have such a great dad. For my amazing dad I got a pretty sweet Grill Thermometer Fork from Sur La Table(his favorite shop!). My dad loves to cook and he is damn good at it so I figured a cooking toy would work perfectly, which it did! I also got him a "USC Dad" mug. He was very excited about that. Anything to show off where his only daughter will be going to school.

Another reason to celebrate is that today is not only Father's Day but it is also my parents' 40th wedding anniversary. I had a fun time looking through photos while trying to put this board together. It's interesting to see how they looked 40 years ago! Good looking back then and still are now, just more grey hair. I'm lucky to have parents that still love each other and have such good genes ;-)To celebrate we went to church this morning and later in the afternoon we went going back to church for a Jazz Vespers service. It's pretty much mini Jazz concert that Fr. Norm Freeman puts on with his Jazz buds Theo Saunders, Putter Smith, and Evan Stone. These cool cats are world renowned Jazz artists who have played with New York Philharmonic, SNL, and a bunch of other tours. They have played with famous people including Barbara Streisand, Paul McCartney, Ray Charles, and Gladys Knight. A bunch of my parents' friends were there to celebrate and then we went to dinner at BJs Brewery! Yummmm!
And of course, my birthday is Monday :-)
