Happy Father’s Day (and to the new father in my family)!

happy father’s day to all the wonderful dads, stepdads, grandpas and father-in-laws and father-figures in our lives!

first, a shoutout to my wonderful dad who has taught me to have a sense of humor and wit, to give back and to be a genuine and kind person (to name a few). while he can be a worrier sometimes, he always supports my adventures, travels and crazy ideas. he always steps in when i need him to (like cutting off my earrings before a MRI in the doctor’s office or hypothetically attaching fireworks to action figures and naming them after boys that broke my heart). i am thankful for such a kind and generous man to call my dad-love you!

my hearts and thoughts are with those who have lost their fathers, especially on this day. my heart also aches for those who ended up with less-than-great dads too…you are loved.

hope everyone is having a great sunday!

ps. if you live in portland and want to love on this puppy (or potentially pet sit)….you just let me know! she’s actually 3 years old and truly sweeter than sugar….hence the name “sugar!”
