In my eyes, my guy is an everyday hero because he’s a man everyone can count on, is always up for a challenge, and is known for his deep integrity. He’s also adventurous, outdoorsy, and loves to build anything with his hands.  I’ve always told people how lucky I feel that my husband is such a man’s man, able to build or fix just about anything – yet he also has this sweet, softer side that captured my heart when we first fell in love.


When I think of my husband, more than anything else I think of an anchor helping to keep our family secure and safe throughout all the storms of life. Though the strong winds of struggle and sacrifice have often kicked up all around us, his love and devotion have always brought us back to a safe harbor, even when we’ve sometimes felt lost at sea.

So when special days like Fathers Day roll around, I want nothing more than to give my man a special day to remember. Few things are more important in life than showing appreciation and letting those we love know how much they mean to us. This year I’ve decided on four simple steps for a fun family day this Fathers Day!

1) Plan family bonding quality time

As often and as hard as he works, my husband doesn’t get nearly as much family time as he’d like so I plan to encourage him to share whatever would make him smile that day. My hope is for him to choose any of the activities we love to do together as a family!


2) Pick out a meaningful gift

I’ve always loved special days like birthdays and Father’s Day that give me the chance to shower my love & appreciation on the important people in my life.  With Father’s Day coming up, I wanted to pick a fantastic gift to spoil my man a bit and give him something special just for him. So this year I picked out the Nautica Voyage Gift Set from Macy’s to surprise him for Father’s Day.


I knew it’d make the perfect gift because Nautica Voyage captures the adventure of the man who is undeniably masculine and is designed to outfit the life well-lived – yep, that’s him alright! Finding amazing gifts for dad can feel about as easy as trying to clean the house with toddlers on the loose … so why not save yourself some trouble?  The Nautica Voyage Gift Set smells so good, it’s like a gift for him and you  😉
