happy father's day!

Happy Father's Day to the best father in the whole world.

Father's Day falls on the same weekend that marks two years since my wedding day.  I love that as I look back on that special day, I am reminded so much of the precious moments spent with my dad that day - waiting in my getting ready room, walking me down the aisle, sharing a sweet father/daughter dance with me, kissing me goodbye as we left for our honeymoon.  I loved everything about my wedding day, but today I am especially thankful for the love of my father on that day - and how he loves me very day.

In honor of this special day celebrating the best dad a girl could ask for, here are ten life lessons I've learned from my dad:

1.  How to use a drill (and screwdriver and pretty much any tool ever).  

2.  The importance of being independent and self-sufficient, but still knowing when to ask for help.

3.  What a true leader looks like - both in the workplace and within the family.

4.  How to fix a flat tire (but still being willing to drive to my college campus to change it for me!).

5.  What a godly man looks like - and what to look for in a husband.
6.  Family always, always comes first.

7.  Failures are opportunities to try again and to succeed.

8.  If you drive a three-wheeler for the first time and crash straight into a bush, it's okay.  You'll just get made fun of for the rest of your life for it :)

9.  What its like to truly feel protected, cared for and loved.

10.  You're never too old to live a little on the wild side!
Happy Father's Day, Dad!  I love you lots and am so thankful to be your daughter!
