Dear Dad

My Muses

This Father’s Day is for the Dads who suffered through an N’Sync concert or two. To the one’s who finished hanging 7 picture frames into a brick wall after you thought it would be so quick & easy (after all, you had it all planned out!). To the guys who learned how to braid hair & tie the perfect bow for your tap shoes. For the dad’s who aren’t afraid to cry in public when they see you in that perfect white dress. For the one’s that struck the fear of God into those early boyfriends and allowed you to learn real quickly who was smart enough to go one-for-one with your crazy family.

To the guys who played that 4 hour card game with you even when it was the last thing on the planet they wanted to do. To the attention givers and kids table sitters.


For bear hugs & softball lessons, quality beer choices & a shoulder to lean on.
Thanks Dad. Happy Father’s Day!
