Picture of the Week: Daddy's Girl


Today is just one of those days that I miss my dad. So much. It's not a holiday, or a birthday, or any other significant day in my life that is sure to bring forth overwhelming emotions. It's simply Tuesday. Sometimes it doesn't take anything out of the ordinary for you to remember all the things that made someone extraordinary and have you truly wish you could have just one more day to spend with them.

I was looking at pictures of my dad and the above one made me smile. My dad was oh so cool, and it seems as if I have followed in his footsteps. I knew there was a reason I loved my tube socks so much. I got my inspiration years ago and it obviously stuck with me. I just wish he was around to see his trend come full circle.

I understand your pain Bri, my dad is sick since 15 years I didn't see him...
The absence of a father is difficult, but fortunately, sweet mom is there!
kiss you ;-) <3

I remember when I met your Dad.
It was at a meet at ASU and he was there to surprise you. My parents had bumped into him on the road at a rest stop earlier in that day so they introduced me to him and clued me in on the surprise before you saw him.
I'm not sure what you were doing or who you were talking to but when you saw him you said, "Daaaaadddd!!" and immediately ran and jumped into his arms. You were so happy. Your hug lasted forever and I think you may have shed a few tears- I was trying not to be all in your moment like that so I can't remember.
I do remember how happy you were to see him though- it was more than happiness, you were completely overjoyed!
If there was ever a moment that could capture what a father and daughter mean to each other that would be it.
Everytime you talk about your Dad that's what I think about.

Love you BriBri

Before I read the second paragraph I was thinking the same thing about the tube socks. Keeping this trend up with your competition outfits would be a great way for you to keep his memory alive.

ugh...automatic tears. I love that all these pictures are surfacing, just wish there were some of him and I. Guess cameras weren't in style from 83 till I reached 4th grade :(

Bri, you made me cry! I'm loving the classic coke and "real people" shirt, but most of all I love how sweet your words are. I'm sorry. ox...

Thinking about getting a car insurance quote?
[url=http://safe-car.org]Car Insurance[/url]
A growing number of people are dropping their auto insurance to try to save money, according to a recent study by the Insurance Research Council (IRC). If the current rate of unemployment continues, the IRC estimates that the national uninsured rate will climb from 13.8 percent in 2007 to 16.3 percent in 2010. With that many people driving without coverage, it's dangerous to be uninsured. But how much car insurance do you really need?
If you're like many people feeling the pinch, your inclination is to get the bare minimum of insurance coverage required by the law in your state. That's a good place to start, though those minimums may not fully protect you -- or your assets -- if you file a claim. We recommend getting more than the minimum coverage unless you are driving a beater and have no assets to protect.
