A Fro' to Remember...



In honor of Father's Day I thought I'd post a pic of my own dear dad. And, to give you an idea of how I got to be as, um, unconventional as I am I thought I'd post one of my favorite Dad pictures.

That pic above is my parents' wedding picture. And the mass of hair on the left is my amazing dad. And, let me say, since it has been repeated to me for years, that my dad got a massive haircut in honor of his wedding day. Massive.

And, every time I see that picture I think one thing and one thing only. What in the world was my grandpa thinking when he let that classic rock loving mountain man marry his fresh faced baby girl?

Probably the same thing my own dad was thinking when he let me marry the dreaded and braided man of my dreams (and father to my own precious baby girls).



He was thinking, "Dear God, please let him take care of my daughter better than he takes care of his hair."

Thankfully, they both have.

For more fun pics from the past, head over to That Family's website for Fro' Me to You!
