Hero of the Week!


So my hero this week is my dad. I could think of a thousand reasons why I consider him my hero but this week it's because of how yesterday morning went. Our conversation went a little something like this:
He came in to tell me goodbye before I left for the airport, and he said,
Dad - "Tara, I don't want you to go home."
Me - "I know I don't want to leave either."
Dad - "Then don't."
Me - "I guess I could stay longer."
Dad - "Really?! How long? A month?!"
Me - "Well I don't know if I can stay a month, but I could stay another week. I'm not traveling this week."
Dad - "Let's call the airlines!"
It obviously didn't take much twisting of my arm to stay another week in California. I love it out here and it's been a ton of fun getting to spend time with my parents. So I'm here another week. By the time I go home I will have been here for three and a half weeks! Kind of crazy! :)

I didn't know you've been in CA. It's great that you can spend that time with your parents. You'll never regret it! Have fun and give your hero a big hug from his sister!

Love,
