To My Soulmate // Father’s Day 2018

To my wonderfully wonderful, imperfect yet perfect, dreamy, unbelievably hilarious, partner in crime, soul mate, husband and baby daddy on Father’s Day 2018:

Together, four years ago we made that incredibly beautiful, witty, rambunctious toddler that “possesses immaculate executive leadership skills” (haha) and three years ago, we celebrated your first real Father’s Day after she finally arrived into this crazy family that we’ve created.

If there is one thing that I know amongst all of the madness that we’ve endured our entire lives, and for the past 5+ years that we’ve been married it’s this: You’re an incredible father. I knew you would be an incredible before we even talked about creating our sweet Sophia. I knew that I never had to worry about whether you’d “show up” for our future children. These days, in our generation, incredible fathers- active fathers– are *unfortunately* very rare to come across.

Luckily for me, you’re the complete package. You’re a wonderful husband and life partner- my best friend, my rock, my soulmate. Our marriage hasn’t always been easy- no marriage is- but I chose you to do life with. And I’ll choose you over and over. Without pause, without a doubt- in a heartbeat. I’ll keep choosing you. I’ll keep loving you- through all of the ups and downs. The highs and lows. Through all of the sweet laughter, love, and all of the chaos life throws our way.

Thank you for making me a mama- thank you for helping me create the most perfect little human that made us parents!

I absolutely adore you.

Always and forever, sweetheart!

Here are just a few of the *literally thousands* of pictures that I love of you and our princess for you to reminisce on your special day!

Happy Father’s Day, stud muffin! xx
