Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day...
parlor girl wedding day the BEST Dad in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD!

I am so lucky to have such an amazing father! He is a true inspiration in every means. 

My Dad was the Dad that would wake up at 4 am and already have your car washed and oil changed before you even got out of bed. 

My Dad bought a mining claim in the 90's and took us camping all summer every summer growing up, teaching us all about outdoor survival.

My Dad believed in working on the property for punishment. If grounded you were up at 5 am running the wood splitter for firewood prep or planting Christmas trees on the entire lower end of the land. 

My Dad always got up and went to work every single day of my life showing me exemplary work ethic and that if you work hard for things you appreciate them so much more.

My Dad always took us to play sports on weekends and holidays which were a blast.

My Dad always answers the phone! Every. Single. Call.

My Dad looks big, gruff and tough and is a contractor, built our entire childhood home, a biker, drives tractors, runs a dredge for gold and yet is the sweetest, most loving person alive. 

My Dad has always let me find my own way and has only given practical, valid advice. Ever.

My Dad has always believed in me.

My Dad was a great example to me in choosing a husband. Thank you!

My Dad gave me a plant for my first apartment that I had for 10 years. Until I dropped the pot and broke it-oops.

My Dad painted the entire exterior of our home.  

My Dad does all the right Dad stuff that makes a daughter love them to the moon and back!

Thank you Dad for being the BEST Dad in the entire world to me!!!

I LOVE YOU with all my heart!
