This post is in honor of my dad’s 50th birthday. Happy birthday, Dad! As I mentioned in my last post, we were fortunately able to celebrate this milestone birthday together in California with all of my dad’s family.
I love my dad. I am so thankful for the relationship I have with him. He’s been such a great example of what fatherly love is and has always shown me how a husband should love his wife in the relationship he has with my mom. My dad is one of the most lively, animated people I know and I admire his zest for life and for relationships. We joke that my dad makes friends everywhere he goes, but I think that’s just a reflection of my his jolly personality and people skills. Thanks, dad, for always being someone I could always be honest with, someone who taught me how to drive a car and handle all road situations (like throwing the emergency break on me while driving through a parking lot to see how I react… haha), seeing the importance in being respected and not settling for less, for always being there to make me laugh through the good and the bad, encouraging me to better control my emotions (still working on that one…) and teaching me to appreciate a classic Tom & Jerry cartoon as well as an old, mint blue Bel Air. In honor of his 50th birthday, here are a few of my favorite recent pictures with my Daddoo.
Happy birthday, Papa Bear!
