Things I Love: My Dad

h a p p y. f a t h e r s. d a y
My Dad rocks. My whole life he has gone above and beyond to make sure I have absolutely everything I need. Last night he and my Step Mom Rena drove out my way to take my Mom, Casey and I out to Dinner. Not celebrate his awesomeness on this Father's Day weekend, but to take us our to dinner before our trip. But that's just my Dad for you, he always goes out of his way to make me happy.
Ever since I was a kid my Dad encouraged me to dream big and set my goals high. In high school for my Senior project my Dad (and my mom) set up a trip for me to go to Huntington beach to job shadow a fashion designer at
Roxy Quicksilver
, my FAVORITE brand at the time (more on that obsession here). As a teenager, obsessed with Roxy and Fashion Designing, that trip was one that I will never ever forget. And I will never forget how my parents encouraged me to have such big dreams. Thank you Taylor for reminding me of my Roxy love.
As an adult he still does so much for me, and that includes telling anyone and everyone he knows about my blog. He even offered to take over and help out with the blog when I am on my trip, but I'm not sure the internet is ready for that. Not to worry though, I would never let my #1 blog fan down (my Dad) and I will be updating on my trip. I love you Dad and am I so lucky to have you as my DAD!!!
Here's to your 28th year as a father!!
28 years ago and change.
I love you!
Yay for Dad's, father figures and anyone who has raised a child.
Today I am celebrating my Dad and thinking of all those who are without their Dad's, father figures or parents today. xoxo
