Leah insisted on doing a mini photo shoot so she could frame a picture for dada’s desk as a Father’s Day gift. She’s so thoughtful like that. Of course, I had this idea in my mind, of Leah perfectly holding her “I love Daddy!” sign on her lap while smiling directly at the camera. Obviously the reality was far from the imagined. Although I DID end up getting some pretty cute pics (I ended up choosing and framing the B&W pic second from the top) it took me close to 100 shots to get a few good ones. And by the end that “I love daddy” sign was reduced to a crumbled mess. Because obviously wrinkling and crumbling a piece of paper is far more fun than holding it up.
It’s pretty obvious to anyone and everyone that this girl LOVES her daddy. All he has to do is walk into the room and this girl starts laughing and dancing. It’s like she just knows, “Dad’s here, let the fun begin!!” They have a special bond, those two, and I feel so blessed that I’m given the privilege to witness it daily. Happy Father’s Day, Brett, we love you!
And to this man, the one who traveled all the way down to Florida to help us rip out, and then build, our dream kitchen, the one who would drop ANYTHING to help out, the one who loves his 4 girls (well 5 including his lovely wife) and 1 granddaughter with all his heart, I am so thankful for you. Thank you for being the most wonderful father and grandfather a girl could ever ask for. I love you!
Happy Father’s Day!
