☂️ Father's Day forecast

🎁 Celebrating dad
Speaking of Father's Day, this is my final reminder to you that you should plan something special for yours. If you haven't -- even though I've reminded you every day this week -- don't worry. We did some planning for you. Celebrate your pops with these Central Florida Father's Day events.
I love you, dad!💙
Since it is our last afternoon together before Father's Day, that means it's the last day I'll tell you something I love about my dad. Since I've been talking about this awesome guy all week, I figured I'd throw in a picture today, so you can put a name to a face. Disclaimer: The photo above is a couple of decades old, so I've done some growing since then, but my dad hasn't changed much at all, except for the fact that he has a few more salt and pepper-colored hairs and wears shirts with sleeves these days.
Anyway, today I'm thankful for my dad's unconditional love. No matter what decisions or plans I made growing up -- regardless of whether those were ones he would have chosen for me -- he always supported me. His unwavering love has been my solid foundation since day one, and I could not have asked for a better father. Who you are deserves to be celebrated every day, dad. Happy Father's Day!
And happy Father's Day to all the rest of the dads, grandfathers and father figures out there. Who are you celebrating this Father's Day? And what do you love most about them? Let me know by emailing me at BVolz@wkmg.com.
