Happy Father’s Day – Top 5 Best Daddy Daughter Movies

Today is one of the most important days of the year, where we celebrate our fathers.  I for one am the absolute luckiest girl in the world because I can confidently say that my dad beats everyone else’s.  My dad is my very best friend in the world; I tell him everything, from what I’m learning in school, to the latest gossip in my life, and to even all my boy stories.  I can also say that I feel very lucky to have a father who is young, but most importantly will always be young at heart.  He is the bravest man I know because not only will he face plant a million times while mountain biking, he will also gladly sit on the couch and watch Mean Girls with me – and enjoy it.  The older I become, and the more I experience each day I can relate to my dad more and more, and we are able to have deep conversations that I think are helping shape who I am.  So this post is dedicated to my amazing dad, whom I love with all my heart!


Another reason why I love Father’s Day is because there really is no relationship that compares to one between a father and a daughter.  It is a special bond that can’t really be described and whenever I watch a movie centered around that relationship I get all emotional and embarrassed – typical.  So with that, here is a list of the best father daughter movies!

What A Girl Wants

Despicable Me

I Am Sam

The Parent Trap

Father of the Bride

Happy Hanukkah!

Tonight marks the start of the wonderful eight nights of Hanukkah!!

To start off this holiday season, my roommates and I decided to go to Haile Plantation in Gainesville to take a picture with Santa, except we brought Hanukkah signs and decorations with us to make it an official Christmukkah holiday card photo!  (photo will be posted soon)  I plan to celebrate this year’s Hanukkah beginning with all my friends in Gainesville and ending with my family in South Florida.  There will be ugly sweater parties, Rugrats Hanukkah Special, and delicious meals!




Hanukkah is a time to spend with your family and loved ones.  So make sure to eat 5 million potato latkes, light each candle, spin your dreidels, and collect as much gelt as you can!


Happy Hanukkah to all my Jews out there!
