Happy Birthday Dad!

This time last year... 

I was ordering a Publix birthday cake that said "Happy Birthday Dad!", picking out balloons, and headed down South to celebrate my Dad's 62nd birthday. 
It was a birthday that was very special because we were celebrating my Dad's life & it was one of the few times I have ever been with my Dad on his birthday. 

My Dad doing a little birthday dance !!
It was a great day... we had done things that we hadn't done since I was a little kid. We laid out on floats in the pool all day long, we laughed a lot, we had dinner together, and we sang Happy Birthday to him. 

I never imagined that his 63rd birthday would come & he wouldn't be here. I never imagined that the video I recorded of us singing him Happy Birthday and him blowing out his candles would be his last, but it was... And it breaks my heart each & every time that I think about it.  

My Dad's life was cut way too short because of cancer. And even though he won't be here to celebrate his 63rd birthday, I will celebrate him. 

Happy Birthday to You!
Happy Birthday to You! 
Happy Birthday Dear Daddy... Happy Birthday to You! 

I love you Dad !! 

From this birthday & many more to come, I will celebrate his life. I am going to get a single balloon & attach a note to it & send it up to the skies... This is something that I will do whenever we have kids so they can celebrate their Grandpa's life too.
