Happy Father's Day to, in my opinion, the best dad out there.  This guy unconditionally loves his family and would do anything for us. He's an entrepreneur who made it with common sense and busting his ass day in and day out, and he's taught me so many things in life, both big and small…like self dependence.  Favorite example: "Dad, which way do I turn to get to Cedar Point?" response…  "Look at the damn signs…figure it out!"  But…at the same time, even though you had nothing to do with catching it, he'll let you in on his big fish photo!

Love you dad!  Hey…we're sending up a surprise, so keep your eyes open for a delivery the next few days!

College graduation. 2003



My dad: most badass, laidback, cool guy I will have ever known, no contest.  He's a musician, a poet, a retired soldier and an incredible story teller.  He named me after Bob Dylan, pretty cool… huh? Before my parents divorced when I was 4, I was Daddy's girl… through and through.  Since then, many of the things I've accomplished in my life have been because I just wanted to make him proud.  He lives in Tacoma, Washington with his 3 kids and wife. I haven't seen him since our wedding day. I'd like to fix that soon. Everytime I talk to him he says, "there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you." 🙂 I'm getting a little teary eyed.  I love you dad…

He spent 20+ years in the Air Force as a combat controller. 1985



My papa. Tied with Mike for my most favorite guy. That's sayin' something, huh!? 🙂  He was my Grandma's boyfriend for as long as I can remember.  We were best buddies.  We came to each others rescue more times than I can count. 😉 I lived with him and G-ma while I was in high school… those were some of the best years of my life. He passed on December 20, 2002.



Here's the papa I remember. 🙂 1999


Happy Father's Day…

Love you.
