The other day I was thinking about my blog and all the things I talk about.  I came up with a long list – food, exercise, healthy living, work, friends, Vishnu, mom, sister, etc.  And then it hit me.  The only person I’ve only mentioned a few times here and there is my dad.  A few times?!  You wouldn’t know it, but my dad is an incredibly important person in my life.  Growing up, my sister and I were TOTALLY daddy’s little girls.  I would argue that we still are to some extent. Winking smile

I had plans to dedicate a post to my dad on Father’s Day.  Sadly, it didn’t happen!  But, there’s no time like the present!

Here’s to the man…that I am so proud to call my dad.  Love you, daddy!!!


Here’s to the man…that loves his girls more than anything in the world!


Here’s to the man…that woke up in the middle of the night (on multiple occasions) to run to the grocery store to pick up Pedialyte because one his lovely daughters was super duper sick.

Here’s to the man…that always remembered our favorite brand of cereal or peanut butter, even when we didn’t say a word.


Here’s to the man…that always finds a way to make us laugh with one of his silly jokes!

Here’s to the man…that has managed to capture every important event in our lives on camera, so that he can proudly show anyone and everyone he can.


Here’s to the man…that wakes up at the crack of dawn to provide for his family.

Here’s to the man…that has only shed tears in front of his daughters a couple of times in an effort to be strong.

Here’s to the man…that I’m afraid of seeing tear up on my wedding day more than anyone else.

  1. This is a beautiful post. I had never seen my father cry except on my wedding day,it was tough to see him cry.

    Dad’s are kind of the “unsung heroes” sorts, I think. We talk about or mums, siblings and spouses but Dad not that much. But they will always be the first men in our lives 🙂
