There are few things I love more than time with my family.  We’ve always been really close, but as my sister and I have grown older and each have different things happening in our lives, time when we are all together has become even more precious. On Sunday, it was my Dad’s 64th birthday and to celebrate, my Mom organized a weekend away for us. She booked a beautiful apartment at the beach and the views were nothing short of spectacular.

Sand Beach

It was wonderful to enjoy each others’ company and spend time with my Dad, who is the most amazing person. He’s always been there for me and ever since I was little has encouraged, supported and inspired me to live my dreams. I admire him for being self-made and building a successful business, while being the best Dad a girl could ask for… I don’t know how he does it! One of my favorite photos is when I was about five, my Dad came to school for a father’s open day and they had various events. He’d come straight from the office and is there in a full suit doing a potato sack race. Every time I see that photo, it just sums up my Dad – he’s always been there and I’m lucky because he’s not only my Dad, but my best friend too.

I wanted to share a few photos of our family beach weekend, celebrating my Dad…
