Celebrating Dad

Tacos & Coffee at Jo’s

We would be lost without our Dad–Max! He’s the leader of our pack, the exclamation point {!!} to our FUN! and works tirelessly for our family every single day!! We are so lucky! I’m also so very thankful for my Dad! He taught me unconditional love, the importance of giving back and cultivated my curiosity in the kitchen! This guy has never used a recipe in his life and let’s just say the acorn doesn’t fall to far from the tree :).

Here is how we plan to celebrate Father’s Day as well as a few ideas that might inspire your holiday!

Large or small, never miss an opportunity to celebrate and praise someone you love y’all!

Bagel & Lox

If your husband is a NYC bagel lover like mine, gift him this ready made spread from Russ & Daughters. They’ve been appetizing 106 years and their specialty is Bagels & Lox! I just ordered our bundle for Father’s Day Brunch and I’m so excited!!!!

Making something along these lines for our Father’s Day dessert!! Max is a BIG chocolate, peanut butter lover (who isn’t?!) so I’m going to play around with this recipe by The Heritage Cook. I’ll report back!!!

My Dad is a Pie guy so I always order mini pies from Tiny Pies! They are delicious, the perfect size AND they ship nationwide!!

Watego Ponchos from MAYDE

Y’all I bought beach towels from MAYDE last month, and they are unbelievable soft and absorbent. Thinking about this poncho for Max! Maybe a family set of poolside ponchos are in order?

Hand made from the Heart

You simply can’t beat hand made gifts! My Dad and Max really love family prints and sweet keepsakes. I adore the idea of this hand print family tree from Etsy.
