♥happy father's day♥

Just some of the reasons my dad is such an amazing guy...

♥He's the most gentle person I know.

♥He knows so much about plants-- any plant that I point out, he knows what it is, how it's used, and where it grows.

♥He truly has the soul of an artist, and I'm so proud of him for staying true to himself and continuing to do what he loves.  Sculpting with the kids at a family party.

♥My dad reads a lot.  We've always had a lot of books, on everything from poetry to gardening to cooking, and my brother and I both really, really like books.

♥Speaking of cooking, my dad is awesome at it.  He can take a bunch of seemingly unrelated ingredients and make something delicious on a moment's notice.  And he makes the best scrambled eggs in the world.

♥He's never missed events that were important for Zach and me-- dance recitals, graduations, birthdays, band gigs, he was there for every one.

♥He's still madly in love with my mom.  This is from their 25th anniversary party.  My mom was a bride-of-Frankenstein character, with crazy hair and tons of lace over a hoop skirt, and my dad wore a hideous rubber mask for most of the night.  So much fun.

♥My dad is really funny, and he's always so delighted when one of his jokes goes over well.

♥He never told me or my brother that something we wanted to be was unrealistic, or would take too much work.  He's always encouraged us in whatever we wanted to do.

♥He's accepting of people just the way they are.

Happy Father's Day!  Love you so much, Dad.  I can't wait to see you in a few days.
