Happy Fathers Day

When I first met Cason... well, I was smitten, to say the least :)
Everything about him made me weak in the knees, and still does.
That's how I knew it was love.
He was a hotty!, amazingly talented, patient as ever, and a romantic to boot!

Little did I know how amazing our life would really turn out to be, because of all these great qualities.
I really lucked out, with this kid. :)

The influence of all the amazing fathers in my life and his life... have proven to be a blessing beyond measure, for me and my children. 

The Love of a Father is
always unconditional, and selfless...

They are always teaching their children and
trying to prepare them for what this life may bring.

They work ridiculously hard for our families,
to show us how much they love us. 

And they play hard too

They are Strong...

And always there... 
for the good

the bad

and the ugly. lol

The fathers in my life have never failed to show me love, kindness, patience, hard work, and most of all...
I don't think there will ever be a BIG enough way for me to tell them all how much I LOVE and appreciate everything they have gone through and will go through, to make our families and Mothers and Wives as happy as they do.
It's a huge job, with lots of bumps along the way.

Thank you for always sticking with it, and never giving up.
We love you more than words or pictures can ever express.

Happy Fathers Day
To all of the most important, amazing Men in me and my girls's lives.
