There's nothing like growing up in Mississippi with a "Southern Man" Dad !

Today is Father's Day!

I feel like I have been blessed with the most wonderful Dad in he world (for me).
Of course, as a southern girl, he has always been and always will be "Daddy".
I always joke that I didn't even know that I had a mother until I was 15 years old.
The truth of the matter is that I had and still have a more -than- fabulous, truly southern belle mother who is the hostess -with -the mostest ! Martha Stewart has nothing on her!  It's just that, until I was in my teens, my whole world absolutely revolved around my Daddy! He was my world ..and I absolutely just KNEW that he hung the moon !
My Dad has shaped so much of who I am ...and what I do!
I love my Daddy ! You can see that in SO many of my poems!

Happy Father's Day, Daddy!
