{this moment}: The First Baseball Player I Ever Loved

{this moment}  A Friday ritual.  A few photos -  a few words - from the good ol' days.  Simple, special, extraordinary moments.  Moments I want to pause, savor and honor.

Happy Birthday today to my first love, my daddy, who also happens to be the strongest man in the world.

Legend has it he could catch the ball with his eyes closed

My Favorite Shortstop Ever
 
Happy, happy day, Dad.  I love you from the heart of my bottom.

How fantastic! These photographs are such a treasure... what I wouldn't give to have photos of my parents like these. Happy Birthday to your father...

I hope you'll take a "moment" to come by my little corner of the world... I find my youngest this way quite often these days... http://sofiasideas.com/2013/04/19/this-moment-76/
