This year for Fathers Day the main man in our life will be out of town (in fact he’s out of town for the whole month of June. booo) so I can’t surprise him with some grand gesture*. It has to be something small. Something simple. Something that fits easily in the mail. So what’s a girl to do? Surf Pinterest of course. And that’s where I found this brilliant idea by the ladies over at The Dating Divas then got right to work.
Isn’t it so great? Just grab a little 7 day pill box and some treats and you’re set! Instead of one grand gesture he gets seven small, heart felt ones spread out over a week.
I made a few changes to their version though. Since I would be mailing it I didn’t want to put any candy in it that could melt. And I also wanted it to be handwritten notes (they have a printable available) so that Abi could help out a little and make it even more personal. I really want to make sure he understands how much we love and appreciate him.
Abi also helped me set up for the shot. I was extremely impressed with her restraint with all that candy in front of her. But then I got behind the camera and most of the pictures turned out like this.
The little sneak couldn’t keep away! Silly girl.
