Happy Father’s Day…


…to the man who appreciates a good call on the banana phone


…to the man who danced with me for nearly six long minutes to Butterfly Kisses at my Sweet 16


…to the man who sewed up the hands of my little baby clothes so I wouldn’t scratch myself


…and to the man who braved a hail storm in Florida (?!) to watch my first half-marathon because he knew how important it was to me.

While I’m certain I picked up some of my worrywart tendencies from you, I also picked up a strong work ethic and a strong sense of doing the right thing, even if it’s not always the easiest decision.

Though you pretended for a really long time you didn’t like pets, you are so nurturing to every animal, especially sweet little Butterskotch, whom we will all miss. [He passed away last night.]


Happy Father’s Day, Dad! I’m lucky to be your daughter.

As usual, my thoughts and prayers are with those who cannot or do not celebrate Father’s Day.

    Your dad sounds like an amazing man 🙂 Dads really are great aren’t they, it’s the little things they do which I really appreciate. Hope your father had a great day.

    What a sweet tribute to your father. I really appreciate the sentiment at the bottom of your post. My dad is still alive but is very ill and I’m not going to lie Father’s day was a hard day. Going on facebook and seeing all of the “happy fathers day to the best dad in the world” post over and over again was tough to read. I appreciate your thoughtfulness.

    Hey Theodora, it’s Lauren (io_corro). (I owe you an email to find a time to hang out.) I wanted to thank you for including that message at the bottom of the post. My dad passed away almost four years ago and Father’s Day will always be hard for me. You have a kind heart to think of those who find difficulty in the day. xo
