Dear Dad,

For most of my life I remember being a “Daddy’s girl” always wanting to do the things that you did. Watching football and screaming alongside you, eating popcorn while Capitan America hosted the late night vampire movies, or climbing onto your shoulders in the pool begging for you to throw me into the water.

You would blow dry my hair every night after my bath and yell at me to get back into my room when I snuck into Josh’s for extra post-bedtime playtime. Or the time when you dropped me off for a birthday party with a mustache and came back two hours later with it gone.

You are the man who encouraged me in sports and made me believe in myself. The man whose face I needed to see in the stands during my track meets to not feel as nervous; the man who would get just as excited when I broke a record as I did.

You’re the man you let me go to Texas A&M instead of your alma mater, The University of Texas, therefore changing the dynamic of Thanksgiving in our house forever.

You’re the man who proudly gave me away and looked touched when I didn’t give up my name, your name completely. A marriage that came after
you helped me pick up the pieces of mistakes once made.

You’re the Dad who gets right in and plays pool volleyball with the best of them. And who hosts the epic pool bashes every year.

You’re the man who came to cheer my on during my marathon and looked as proud when I finished as if I had just won an Olympic gold medal.

You’re the man who gives the BEST Chanukah presents. Ever.

So, Happy Father’s Day, Dad!


Your Little Girl (and biggest fan!)

      Haha! You know how much I LOVE Peyton Manning. When my dad got me that signed jersey I thought I was going to die!
