Honestly, I never had a relationship with my Father until I turned 21. I never understood him and we barely knew how to hold a conversation. Then again, he's a Capricorn and I'm an Aries... Earth vs. Fire. But honestly, we both love the outdoors. We ended up talking for hours about future adventures should go on
(he's an encyclopedia when it comes to exploring)...
As we spent the morning running at Durrance Lake up into the Partridge Hills, I realized how amazing my Dad is. Sure, he may not always tell me how much he loves me, but I know it through the way he cares for me. I guess I was always ignorant to how he felt, and just tried to live my life without him in it...
So even though I can't go back to make up for the time we
lost, I can feel secure in what we've grown to find
in each other, as adults and as Father and Daughter
My Dad and I also love finding little eateries to stop in at.
He took me to his favorite, Georgie's Cafe
We bonded over Mincemeat Tarts <3
Not a huge Mincemeat fan, but these were awesome!
Later we went to Home Depot to pick up a Christmas Tree.
My Dad is such a Christmas Tree Scrooge... I'm guessing he has some type of complex developed from childhood memories of Christmas. Below you can see how "delicately" he treats nature lol...
"Dad, don't just shove it in the van like that!
What did that poor tree ever do to you?" ...
"Kelsey, next time just let me buy the small tree we
saw in there, it'll be a Charlie Brown Christmas"
