happy birthday dad!

November 28, 2010

Today is my Dad's birthday!! I love being home to celebrate these kinds of celebrations. My Dad is an incredible man and an amazing father! I seriously lucked out. Not only do I get to enjoy his cooking every night {which I've mentioned before here, here, and here} but I also get to talk with him and learn from him. He's the smartest man I know and I've learned so much from him. He's always been an inspiration to me. I strive to be as avid a reader, as dedicated a partner, as loving a father, and as skilled a cook!
Happy Birthday Daddy!

  38. awww, sorry to comment so late on this, but your dad is super handsome and i love seeing your relationship with him too and hearing what an avid reader and intellectual guy he is. that type of father is so inspiring and such a blessing to their admiring daughters! it makes me sad to see all the comments of ladies who don't have great relationships with their parents or dads. what a blessing we have, those of us who love and cherish our folks. it breaks my heart how good life can be with a family you absolutely adore. congrats to you. i think having a great father helps you build a happy, healthy, playful and wonderful marriage too (just for my two cents!) LOVE THIS, and happy late birthday to your handsome pops!
