Oddly, Father’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. Every year my parents (meaning mom and stepdad) host a big barbecue and so many of my favorite people come to eat, drink and laugh. It’s the best, and my stepdad, who is basically the greatest dad ever, is in his element. He can usually be found at the grill, beer in hand, doing what he does best: making meat and telling jokes.
Today will likely be a bit difficult, as it’s our first Father’s Day and really our first family event without my grandpa. This was one of the days he seemed to look forward to; he and my grandma would come home from Florida the first week of June, and this was the first party of the summer and the first time the extended family would get together. He could spend the day with his boys, drinking beer and talking about man things (I honestly have no idea what they talked about… meat? Football?). He’ll be missed for sure.
It’s also going to be hotter than Hades, so I’m wearing some new makeup to see how it holds up. If you don’t already, follow me on Instagram for updates, and I’ll likely have reviews coming.
