A Day for Daddies

Happy Father's Day to all the Daddies in my life! 
Daddies are incredibly special men & I'm so lucky to have my life filled with 5 of the greatest dad's I could ever ask for! 

My daddy is incredible, and words cannot express how lucky I am to work along side him in our family business, to call on him when I need life advice, & to watch him love on my baby girl.

 The day he became a grandpa...December 13, 2011

 And a regular old summer day, playing keep away with the paci by the pool!
 
And of course along with my own daddy, Elyse's daddy is pretty special to me as well.  I can't imagine going through this parenthood journey with anyone but him...
He has such fun with life & might even mimic his baby girl every once in awhile.
He'll love on his baby girl always...maybe even when she won't want him to...
but he'll always bring incredible joy to our baby girl just by walking through the door! 

And I'd be missing someone incredibly special if I didn't mention my father-in-law aka Pappy!  They're moving in less than a month & will be SO much closer to us!
Pappy & Elyse
And just like her great-grandma's, Elyse has the incredible privilege of knowing 2 of the most generous, loving, wise, God-loving men that I know.  My prayer now is that she would remember just how much they love her & how proud they will always be of her. 
Great Papa Jim
Great Grandpa Willis

To all the Daddies in my life: I love you more than you could ever imagine.  Thank you for bringing such incredible love, support, &a encouragement to my life; and most of all, thank you for loving my daughter more than life itself. 
Happy Father's Day!
