to the first man i ever loved and will always love: my daddy.


(photo taken in 1987, daddy, kristine, and me - future fashion blogger, ha!)

a long time ago, my sister kristine and i recorded our voices on a Hallmark card and gave it to our dad for father's day. we recorded our message to him a million times 'cause we wanted to get it right in the 10 second window that we still repeat it to him to this day: (in itty-bitty chipmunk voices) dad, you have been the best dad in the world. we love you. though it's not Father's day, the statement still rings very true today. and i believe we'll be repeating it to him for the rest of our lives. 

i love you, daddy - and i thank God a million times over for allowing you to be my dad. thank you for loving us girls and loving mom - for always being there for us. thank you for being a leader and setting an example of what a godly father and a husband needs to be. thank you for your support in this past year, for all the early morning bike rides, for the inside jokes, and for putting the star on the tree every single year. we are all gonna have a blast at McDonalds Lahacienda Outback's tonight (where's the blindfold?!).

much love.
[happy birthday, daddy!]
