Love, Your Babygirl.

     My father, my first love.  Where do I begin? My dad is such a great person and he has taught me so many valuable life lessons that no one else would have ever been able to. A father is so important in a daughter's life. He is the one that leads his family and sets the example for the man you chose to spend the rest of your life with one day, and so much more. A father has so many responsibilities, and my dad succeed at them and still to this day does.
     I am blessed with two amazing angels of my own now and fortunately I get to see my babies grow with their Pops, and there's nothing that warms my heart more. My dad provides my two children with so much love, just as he did and continues to do for me.
     I have come a long way from where I began, along the way I have grown up and changed. Everyone does. That's life! Right? Yet, I will never forget who I am and where I came from. Yes,  I am a total city girl now. But, that is NOT where I grew up! I grew up going hunting with my daddy every weekend, skinning deer, riding four wheelers, jet ski rides, washing cars outside on the driveway, and just having the time of my life being a total tomboy. All of these memories have shaped me into the woman I am today and I will cherish these memories for my entire life.
     My dad has ingrained so many helpful, and impacting life lessons that I respect him so much for. I will pass them down to my own children.
1. Live on your means, not your extremes.
     If I had a penny for every single time my dad has said this, I promise you guys- I would be a freaking billionaire! LOL! Growing up, I was blessed with a very comfortable lifestyle. Although, my dad is no dummy and still to this day counts every penny he has. He has taught me to live within my means. If you simply can't afford something with cash up front- DO NOT GET IT.  He will bring you right down to Earth real quick, and sometimes- I truly do need that.

2. Do not expect anything from anyone. Be a hard worker.
     My dad is such a hard worker. One of the hardest working men I have ever known. Growing up, I never knew of another person who worked as hard as him. Still to this day, I don't. Other than my husband, funny how that works-right? Even on the weekends, my dad was always productive. He was never given hand outs in life, from when he was just thirteen years old-he was out working on his own, saving all of his money for anything he wanted. From baseball bats, to cars...he did it all himself. From a young age, he grew up with that work mentality. With everything I do, I do my very best at it. I am a hard worker and I couldn't thank him enough for ingraining that in me.

3. Honesty is the best policy.
You will not meet a more honest person than my dad. He will tell you how it is, straight up to your face, good or bad. This is what sets my father apart from the other millions of people in this world. Now a days, it is tough to come by a honest and loyal person. My father has simply taught me by his actions. I have never once heard my dad tell a fib. That set a huge example in my life, and has made me the person I am today. I believe being honest is the best trait any person can have.

     Thank you, Dad. Thank you for loving me unconditionally from the beginning to now. Thanks for being right by side through all of my ups and downs. I love you more than you will ever know and you deserve the world. Exactly what you have given me. Happy Father's Day.

Your Baby Girl
