The theme for today is “a smile”.

I really love this photo of myself and my Dad taken in Cape Town, South Africa. If you know my Dad, you’ll know that his personality is very similar to a M&M – hard candy shell outside but soft and sweet inside. With his beard and constant frown lines (even when he’s not frowing) he can look very intimidating and grumpy, so a smile like this really lights up his face.  I just love it.

Oh, and I love the pens in his shirt pocket. Ever so practical. Hey, you never know when you might need a pen, even at the beach….

Keep on smiling Dad!
