at 56 years old, my dad started drinking coffee for the very first time just so that we'd have another thing to bond over. i don't know if anyone else's dad loves them that much.
thank you for taking us on family road trips & various vacations every year. those are some of my favorite memories. thank you for going on trips without mom so i learned early that couples can & should have their own passions & callings. thank you for not putting your passions aside just because you had kids, but for bringing us along.
thank you for loving god & people the way you do. for leading the way you do & never being too proud to admit mistakes or just be a goof ball.
thank you for teaching me how to ride a bike & surf & skateboard & deal with confrontation.
thank you for teaching me to strive for excellence in whatever i do, to try anything once, & that "it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission."
love you dad.
can't wait to get coffee with you this summer💗
