Festa del Papà


Today is Father’s Day in Italy.  It is celebrated on the feast day of St. Joseph here.

This post is dedicated to my father.  What can I say?  He raised five daughters, taught us to ride our bikes, how to swim, how to enjoy the simple pleasures life.   Always strong – our rock.  I could write pages about what a wonderful man and father he is, but now I am all emotional, so I will just include a few pictures and say:  Happy Father’s Day Daddy!
