Honoring the Men in our Lives

"If a June night could talk, it would probably boast that it invented romance."
~Bern Williams~

The lovely month of June is upon us.

A month most notable for celebrating graduations, Father's Day, and weddings...
...and catching fireflies, too!

Over the next few weeks, I plan to do a series of posts to honor those men that are so important in our lives...


I invite you to join me as we celebrate all that is good and noble about the men who matter most to us.

    So glad you checked out my blog. And I'm thrilled to check out yours, too. Gilbert, IA is just 4 miles north of Ames and my dad grew up in the SW part of IA (little town called Exira. You mom-in-love should know where that is). My family and I are practicing Catholics, and are only son is named Luke (we have 5 daughters, as well). We have a few things in common...and I, too love Anne Marie's blog. Thanks again for your nice comment!
