I love my father as the stars - he's a bright shining example and a happy twinkling in my heart.

didn't get the chance to post this last night - it was Father's Day here in Germany yesterday and a holiday, too. as much as i wanted to join my family for some leisure time in nature, my cramps were a killjoy... the girls and their Papi had a blast flitting around in the nearby castle grounds, feeding fish, swans, crows and jackdaws. it was a lovely bonding time and good so... Mami doesn't have to be around everytime. :)


remembering my beloved father, too...


It's only when you grow up, and step back from him, or leave him for your own career and your own home – it's only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it. Pride reinforces love. ~Margaret Truman


for all the loving, nurturing and for all the virtues he had instilled in us - oftentimes in his own constipated style, but they did arrive. with love and gratitude, i salute you, dearest POPS!! ❤
