Daddy's Little Girl

In honor of Father's Day, this post will be dedicated to the man who responds to Dad by only three people (four, if your count when Mom calls him that- but let's not get too technical) in the world: me, Shane and Court.

Well hmmm.... I am not sure where to even begin! I just gotta brag a little bit on my padre! He is awesome! I have yet to meet someone so level headed, goofy, loyal, loving, proud, and generous to our family. My dad is also my biggest fan!!! In college at CCU, dad was at every home game. Senior year he and mom even travelled to New Mexico, Nebraska, and Oklahoma!!! Not to mention all over Colorado for away games!! That meant soooo much to me, I can't really describe it. I could always count on my dad cheering me on from the sidelines (probably annoying my momma, but it meant the world to me to hear his voice while I was out there). Soccer was OUR thing! He would listen to me complain after hard losses and be so proud no matter what the result! The most fun I had with him was probably in Florida for NCCAA Nationals junior year. Although we lost a heart breaker in the first game, dad was there to hold me while I cried like a little kid and then cheer us all on the rest of the time. Those are memories that I will never forget! 

Daddy and I recently at my cousin's wedding.
One last thing that I absolutely love about my dad- his love for our entire family! I know I said this before, but Dad just loves us all so much! He is such an awesome example of what a great father and husband should be. I've always told my mom that no one will ever be good enough for me, cause no one will ever be as great of a dad or husband as my daddy is. (I know the close second is out there somewhere though) 

Now that I have moved on in my life from soccer to DC school, dad is still there cheering me along. Whenever I tell him my grades he is always so impressed, even when they aren't very impressive. He is constantly reassuring me and encouraging me. I know he is proud and I really appreciate his enthusiasm for what I am doing. I actually have him to thank for me wanting to become a DC! So thanks Pops, this is the best decision I have ever made!!!

Daddy and I last year on Father's Day at Coors Field watching the Rockies play!
All in all, I love you Dad! You are the bomb and never cease to crack me up! Cannot wait to see you in August and go to some Rockies games with you! I love you Daddy and I will always be your little girl!

I hope you all enjoyed your Father's Day and truly got to appreciate your dad for who he is and what he means to you and the rest of your family! Here are some lyrics from a song that I heard the other day on my favorite country station. Its by George Strait and the words really hit home! Thanks for loving us like this Dad!

"Daddy's don't just love their children every now and then. It's a love without end, amen. It's a love without end, AMEN."

Be Blessed

Love & Smiles

And I have to add a great quote for good measure...

"Keep away from people who try to belillte your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." --- Mark Twain

Thanks for believing in me and knowing that I too can be great. Love you Daddy
