After just celebrating Father’s Day, we realize how beautiful it is to take time out of our busy schedules to appreciate those who have had major influence in our lives.

I have been very blessed with a large and loving family that I love to spend time with. The holidays are usually full of traveling back down to Leelanau County to meet up with siblings and relatives, and of course, all the nieces and nephews! I just love it. This past Sunday afternoon my brother and I went out golfing with our Dad. We all could have played a better round of course, but It was a great blessing just to be with them.
