Hey, everyone! It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted here…you wouldn’t believe all that I have going on! I have a few senior sessions to blog, lots of personal news to share, and a product to introduce that Brad & I have been developing over the past couple of years, but today, I wanted to take a step back and post a tribute to my loving, amazing father on this beautiful Father’s Day.
I’ve been blessed to have an amazing father by my side my whole life. He has taught me so much: how to work hard with integrity, discipline, compassion, and a joy for life and others. He’s the most selfless person I know: he’s the dad who drives your car all the way home from San Diego because your window was broken into and it’s not getting fixed until it’s back in Phoenix, just so you don’t have to ride the whole way with a rolled down window and no air conditioning (true story, by the way). He’s the dad who sat in the family room patiently explaining the game of baseball while you watched your very first Diamondbacks game, completely oblivious to the sport. He’s the dad who his strong worth ethic has taught you that if you work hard and believe, you can do anything you can imagine. He’s the dad who sat in the stands of your swim meets, soccer games, and softball games, cheering with a proud smile on his face even if I struck out. He’s the dad who when I feel completely stressed out and overwhelmed can calm me down in an instant. He’s the man who goes out of his way to help someone in need, and he’s the smartest person I know who seems to know anything about anything (hey, can’t I have some of that talent, dad?!). He’s the most amazing dad and I am so blessed and proud to call him mine :) He’s been such an amazing inspiration to me and my whole family.
Thank you so much for all you have done for me, Daddy. I love you so very much and so much of who I am today has come from you. Happy Father’s Day.
