We’re down to our 2nd to last Giveaway from our friends at PartyLite.  Last week’s Coast Lights set went out to Kelly G. with her answer:

The things in my house I am most proud of are the ultrasound photos I had framed after having my children. I was able to pick out some pretty, stylish mats and frames, and they are very cool, personal, and fun conversation starters!

This week we’ve got a set of 3 PartyLite Blue Waves Candle Holder with a box of tealights to go with them.

  1. My Dad was a artist, sign maker, boxer and factory worker from Bavaria. I became a professional flutist. My Dad would listen to me practice for hours and always had a comment. It was his way of letting me know how much he really listened. He hardly ever missed a performance and it was he who totally understood performance anxiety and the pressure to be the best. I virtually stopped performing when he died because without him there was no true audience. I miss him. My son was the first baby he ever fed and he was 75 at the time. He painted a picture of my daughter with an older face because he wanted to imagine her as a teen. He went to heaven a few months after that. I guess we provided each other many firsts.

    My dad was always supportive of whatever I did and encouraged me to continue and not give up. He passed way 15 years ago and I miss him very much.

    My dad showed me how important it was to take care of your family before anything else. Most of my childhood he would work multiple jobs just to care for us and make sure we had what we needed. I am now a dad and have tried hard to instill those same work ethics and values to my own kids. I love my dad, Happy Father's Day.

    My Dad has taught me to always use my imagination and to not be afraid to have fun. When I was little, we didn't have a lot, but he would make me toys out of odds and ends and never worried about looking silly playing with me. One of my favorite pictures of my Dad and I is us playing "pirate ship" in a hammock with newspaper pirate hats on and swords he made out of scrap wood. Of course, we are both sneering.

    My father inspired me by always being kind to everyone. He had a very gentle diplomatic nature to him that I was always thankful for. My best Father's Day Memories are of just spending time with him and eating good food!

    My dad was an excellent example of his strong faith in God even through an extreme struggle with lung cancer. I miss him so much.

  8. Lisa says:

    My dad insprired to push myself to be the person that I could be. We always did pamper days where us kids would cook "breakfast" in bed and spend the day doing, whatever "wanted" to do, such as mini golfing and watching cartoons!

    Dad is here today, yes old, but still with it!He worked away, but came home every weekend.Took us on vacations etc. He would always show us how to do repairs, he helped Mom,so we always had something to do.Hated those Sunday drives,barf bags!I can fix anything. Those were the good times!Hiking,fishing,the cabin.Fun it was!That's POP!

  10. I thank my father for teaching me to love others. To be a good person. To help others when they are in need. Fishing trips that he took us on. Since he died in 1970, it has been a long time since having a fathers day with him. But he is always in my heart and thoughts. With love from an loving daughter. Hope all of the fathers out their have a good fathers day.
