Hello there! I’m Kelsey from Pinegate Road, and I was thrilled when Ciera asked me to guest post for her while she was away on her vacation in Maine! I remember going to Maine as a kid with my family…oh man, the lobster shacks you can find when driving down small roads off the coast. I have fond memories of those places. At one, my family and I went to eat fresh boiled lobsters caught out of the ocean, and we were all sitting in the plastic chairs, see. Suddenly, my Dad starts slowly sinking in his chair, and then *plop* all of the chairs legs had collapsed inwards towards the ground and he was just sitting there on the ground at this lobster shack with his entire family in hysterics around him. I still laugh out loud when I think of this story. Anways, I regress.
Speaking of Dads, here is a little gift round-up for things that I’d love to give my Dad for Father’s Day! It’s coming up so quickly, wow. While these items are specific to my Dad, hopefully they can generate some ideas for your very own daddy-o. Mine is huge into hunting, loves getting a little preppy for the workplace (Mom’s influence as of late), and enjoys a good round of golf. On a trip to Italy a couple of years ago I found my Dad a simple leather wallet that he has since fallen in love with. After years of use and abuse, it’s seeing its last days. Much the like the wallet, his Sperry’s are in need of a little refresher. Like father, like daughter, I started donning a men’s pair of Sperry’s to go with my high school uniform. Love them, and the man who influenced me.
Thank you Ciera for having me, and hope that you have a great vacation in that beautiful place of the country! If you’ve never been out to Maine, it’s a definitely must-visit location for sometime in your life. Summers there….oh my gosh.
A huge thanks to Kelsey for this awesome Father’s Day gift round-up! I just love the story of her dad on the ground at a lobster shack, too funny! -Ciera
