My father is an exceptional man. I didn’t always appreciate or even comprehend this in my over-dramatic teenage years when the world was my plaything and parents were a bit of a ball-in-chain. But as I slowly matured, I came to understand and greatly respect this man I call Dad. And now, at my ripe old age of 31, I can say whole-heartedly that this man is more than just a father-figure to me, he is my foundation.

No, he isn’t the most emotional man, but he is steadfast, sturdy, and has always been there for me – whether I knew it or not. His logic has kept me grounded, his patient generosity has helped me over those many, many bumps in the road, his quiet concessions have kept me confident, and his clever ability to stay out of mother-daughter fights has kept me sane!

Yes, my father is an exceptional man indeed and this is something that I not only acknowledge once a year, but something I appreciate every. single. day. Pops, you are my hero and my rock; I can’t thank you enough for all that you have done for me.

This year, Father’s Day also brings with it a new meaning for me. For 31 years I have been a daughter, for two years I have been a wife, but this year I have become a mama-in-the-making, and in 4 months my husband will become the father-figure, the hero, the rock. And I know he will be amazing.

I may be jumping the gun a little since my hubby reads this blog, but happy Father’s Day honey! I couldn’t imagine a better role-model for our little sweetpea and I can’t wait to see you in action. I love you.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and remember to call your dad, give him a hug, a handshake – whatever you can to let him know that he is appreciated! And awesome.

Here’s a little inspiration to get you started:
