the 5th of november.

remember, remember, the 5th of november! how could i forget? it's my daddy's birthday! and to celebrate, i wrote him a little letter...


dear daddy,

thanks for taking me to baseball games when i was a little girl and letting me eat cotton candy until my teeth felt like they had tiny fuzzy sweaters on them. thanks for putting me in sports and encouraging me even when i wasn't very good (like in soccer. yikes.) thanks for taking me backpacking and helping me learn the importance of adventure and how not to get lost in the woods. thanks for teaching me how to build a fire and create a shelter. i'd make a really good boy scout at this point, thanks to you. thanks for teaching me the importance of a good, solid handshake. no puny woman handshakes will do. thanks for teaching me how to parallel park by using trash cans instead of cars. those trash cans never saw me coming. thanks for instilling in me the value of hard work and commitment. thanks for loving me even when i have my drama queen days. thanks for always striving to love me like Jesus does. you're the best! happy birthday!
