Father's Day

I am blessed to have 2 of the world's best fathers in my life. One is my own dad and the other is my husband. It is amazing that I have 2 men who show me every day living examples of what God's love for his children looks like.

My dad has always been an encouraging force in my life. Growing up I can't remember a day where he didn't tell me how much he loved me. He was always there to play with us, talk to us, drive us around or just hang out with us. Whether it was a snow ball fight in the house or moving all over the world dad always made life entertaining. We are blessed to still have him with us. His courage and attitude through his cancer fight is a testament to all of us. For dad the glass is always HALF FULL! I love you daddy!

I knew Nick would be a wonderful daddy, but he has exceeded my wildest expectations. He truly is an active father who changes as many diapers as I do, plays with her, entertains her and holds her when she cries. Cali is so blessed to have a father that adores her and scarifies to be with her. Instead of working 50 hours a week and making more money, Nick works 35 hours a week and spends his afternoons with his daughter. I am so lucky to have a husband who shares the parenting responsibilities and is present for his daughter. I love you with all my heart!

It is hard to believe how life has changed in a year. It was last father's day where the line turned blue on a pregnancy test.
