Father’s Day is one of my favorite days! Cory works so hard for us to enjoy our lifestyle, and he does it without complaining. He is my favorite human on the planet, and Father’s Day is the day dedicated to show how thankful we are for him.
I chose Cory to be my husband because I had such an incredible example of a father. My dad, Mike Rogers, loved me when I was an unexpected surprise for him and my mom, a bratty middle schooler, a hard to love teenager, a rebellious college student, and every moment of every day since. He once wrote in a card to me, “I have loved you your whole life.” That was all that was written, but it’s all that needed to be said. He hugged me, kissed me, and encouraged me through the hard parts of life. He showed me that I was worth a great man like Cory.
As a mom, I get to witness my dad with my boys, Will and Wyatt. He is tender with them. He plays, wrestles, fishes, laughs, and hugs them. My boys are so blessed to have such great male role models to follow!
Today’s post is not only about how wonderful fathers are, but also how to show appreciation! We’ve put together a few lists to give you ideas including a few things from the Sawgrass golf shop and top picks from our own C.W. Cook.

C.W. Father’s Day picks
What do you get the dad who is sophisticated? We asked our own C.W. for his top picks from an awesome website called Mark & Graham. They carry monogrammed leather goods for men who like the finer things in life. See his picks with links below!
There’s no doubt that these types of things are appreciated, but so are gifts picked out or made by the kiddos. We asked C.W. about his favorite Father’s Day gift, and here’s what he had to say:
“I actually have 2 favorite Father’s Day gifts both compliments of my girls. The first was a hair brush. Somehow they found humor in this one. The second was a craft project they made with a simulated iPad, but instead called it the iDad complete with my favorite things as the apps on the screen.”
Have you seen the adorable printables that moms and kids can fill out for dad? It asks about what makes dad happy or mad, what is dad’s job or favorite food, and what makes dad laugh. It’s really cute! Here’s a link to one in case you want to try it at home. It works best for preschool to lower elementary school aged kids, and it even works to give grandpa!
Father’s Day is just around the corner! Let the dads in your life know just how much you love them! Whatever you choose, it’s the thought that counts.
