Happy Father’s Day!

I kinda lucked out in the dad department.

My dad is responsible for making me the woman I am today.  I get my practical approach to life, my skepticism, and my sense of responsibility from him.  He is a wanderer, a lover of the Beatles, a vegetarian who likes tacos.  My dad loved me when I was hard to love (sorry for years 10-16, dad) and still takes care of me as a 31-year-old.  He’s become a father to my husband and my kids adore him.  Thanks dad, for all that you’ve done and continue to do for me and my family.  You’re so very loved!

And then there’s my husband.  Super dad to 4 very young, very needy children.  Not an easy job!  Nothing makes my heart happier than seeing him have a good time with our kids.  The role of dad is so important to him and he is excelling at it!  The kids love him and we’re so lucky to call him ours.
