Father's Day Memories

Hello, all! It's Father's Day here in the States and when thinking about something I could do to represent my own awesome Father, I landed on all of the great memories that he has helped create and been apart of. 

I've been so incredibly lucky with my family life. Growing up, my Dad always made time to take my sister and I to soccer practice, doctor's appointments, and friend's houses. He has always been there for us and is so supportive of all of our endeavors. He is without a doubt one of the kindest, most understanding and generous men out there and I am so proud to be his daughter. 

So, I decided to paint some of my favorite memories and representations of my Dad:

- I played soccer growing up and he was often a coach and always a cheerleader. 

- My love of camping started at a young age when my parents took 6 month old me camping in Yosemite...and I've been hooked ever since ;) Our family camping trips could never run as smooth as they do without my Dad. He's the Superman of camping. 

- Our family has a ski boat and every summer we would spend the weekends out at our local lake. We loved to go inner-tubing, wakeboarding and kneeboarding, and my Dad was always at the helm of the boat. He always knew just how to make my sister's and my inner-tubing the most frightening and fun experience but managed to give us confidence to pop up on a wakeboard when we decided to give that a go instead. 

So, here those are, represented in nail art format! 

I added a matte top coat to these to avoid any glare and I actually really like these that way anyway. 
Hope you all have a great weekend! 

Happy Polishing :)
