I can’t believe it has taken me this long to recap Jeremy’s first Father’s Day. I won’t go into the laundry list of excuses I have readily available in my head. Instead I’ll just give you the highlights of that day and hope it will in some way suffice!
We celebrated the night before by going to see Man of Steel and then having a drink and dinner at a new restaurant. I really love this tradition we’ve started. Sure Father’s/Mother’s Day is about our children, but it’s also so much about the two of us. Taking time out for a special date night was perfect.
The next day was filled with family on both sides. We had brunch with Jeremy’s parents, and made sure to get some pictures of Jeremy, Griffin, and his dad so that the three generations could be captured and framed. His brother and sister-in-law also came in town with their sweet three-year-old twins. The little boy and girl adore “baby giffin”, and couldn’t wait to see him. Later that day we went over to my parents. The evening was filled with good food and music – Finn loves the guitar!
Because Jeremy had given me such an amazing and sentimental gift for Mother’s Day, I knew I wanted to do something similar. Something that would always remind him of when he first became a Daddy – and something that would last long enough to keep those memories coming. I finally found a traditional shaving set by Taylor of Old Bond Street. It’s made of ivory with badger bristles and fashioned in the Edwardian style. Jeremy uses the Art of Shaving line of products, and with the new brush he’s able to use about 75% less shaving cream. He’s in love!
We also made sure to take some time that morning just for the three of us. We had breakfast in bed, and Jeremy also got a chance to unwrap Griffin from the gift bag he found to play with. All in all, the day was perfect.
