I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection. ~ Sigmund Freud

  1. I love that last quote Jill, and it is so true. My dad sadly passed away when he was only 45, but my parents were lucky enough to enjoy 25 years of happy marriage and had 7 kids!
    He was such a "family man", teaching us by his actions, the important things in life...not money, or belongings but health and happiness. To him happiness was his children, and there is not a day when I dont think of him.

    I loved looking over your last 12 months,"Here is to your next 12, with little Phebe in the mix too"!!!!


  2. Happy Father's Day Colin! So many great memories captured in this post. I love the photo in the restaurant.

  3. I LOVE the look on Lilah's face in that first photo.

    You know...I had the same idea as you to reflect on the last year....only I have a pathetic selection of photos to choose from. So I didn't do it. Mark my words- next Father's Day post will be different!

    Beautiful beautiful collage. I've only been following your blog for just a short while, but I feel like I've just lived the last year with you! Beautiful job, Jill!

  4. "Baby Boy" has some serious cuteness going on!


  5. Happy Father's Day to your wonderful hubby!

    Jill, the portrait of your two loves together - that very first photo - is perhaps one of my favourite photos of yours ever. It is soooo special. You are so very good at capturing the beautiful relationship your hubby and child have.

  6. What a beautiful post! So many photos that evoke so many emotions. I think my favorite one is the restaurant one in the last row, where they are clinking glasses. Happy Father's Day to Baba Boy!
