Celebrating the Man who Set the Course - Nautica Voyage

I always tell people that I've been blessed with kids who are perfect for me.  They are athletic, artistic, and adventurous.  Likewise, I have been blessed with parents who are perfect for me.  My father- grandfather to 20- taught each of his 6 kids the value of hard work and the importance of strong family values.  As a single mom, my dad is the greatest and most consistent male role model in my kids' lives.  He spends time with all of his grandchildren, but we are the fortunate ones to live only a mile down the road.  People around town always ask me if I am his daughter- which is always followed up with a compliment about my dad, his integrity and his character.

When something is broken, I call my dad.  When something needs looked at on my car, I stop by his garage.  When I head out for a bike ride, I ride by to see if he wants to go with me.  When my toilet gets clogged, he hands me a plunger.  He hasn't always steered the way for me, but he sure set me on the right course with a fantastic upbringing.  He doesn't always bail me out of everything, but he has always been my anchor, my support and my silent (he's pretty quiet and reserved) cheerleader...the wind in my sails.
I don't buy gifts for my family for every occasion- that's just how we are with every holiday.  While my dad never expects gifts, I like to surprise him to show him how much I appreciate his influence in our lives.
What better than the Nautica Voyage Gift Pack from Macy's?  The fragrance is light and clean- probably the best men's fragrance I've smelled in a while!  Leslie was awesome at helping us select the pack and move on to the makeup counter.
As the only kid in our family living in the same town as my parents, sometimes I am tasked with celebrating him on birthdays and Father's Days.  He'll be away this Sunday for Father's Day, so I planned an early Father's Day appreciation.
I think there are a few requirements to be a good dad- excellent griller is one of them.  He grilled the tuna steak and we enjoyed dinner on the patio.
 He opened his Nautica Voyage Gift Pack with a huge smile on his face!  This gift set includes: 3.4 oz Eau de Toilette, 2.5 oz Aftershave Balm, 2.5 oz Shower Gel, and 1 oz Eau de Toilette.
My dad recently retired and some of the grandkids were around to welcome him home as he pulled into the driveway.  As a kid, I remember waiting for him to turn the block (work was only a few blocks from home) from his walk home from work.  I was always excited to see my dad at the end of the day.
There is no one else I would have wanted to set the example on how to voyage through this life with respect, accountability, playfulness, faith, a bit of perfectionism and a lot of genuine love.  I'm so proud he is my dad.  I've felt that way my entire life.
What are some of your dad's best qualities to celebrate this Father's Day and how has he helped you voyage through your life?

Invigorate his senses with a classic and masculine scent, Nautica Voyage.  This deluxe gift set is yours for only $65.00, a $128.00 value.
