I thought in honor of Fathers Day, I would make a post of some of the important things I have learned from my Amazing Dad. He is a very social person, with big heart and huge sense of humor that is contagious. I am my fathers daughter and have gotten many things from him over my life and in many ways am like him. Yes I was a Daddy's girl and while I did get many things from my mother, it is just as important to acknowledge some things I got from my Father.
I love you Dad, Happy Fathers Day to You and Happy Fathers Day to all you other Amazing Dads as well!
