My Dad and Cody + A Father’s Day Giveaway

I realize I often keep things pretty surface level and mostly talk about fashion but in honor of Father’s Day I wanted to share a little more about two of the most important people in my life: Cody and my Dad.

We still haven’t unloaded all our boxes from the move so these were the only pics I could find. Who else had the bowl cut as a kid?! When I find the rest of the pics I’ll share more 🙂

I was the full definition of a Daddy’s girl. My parents were divorced when I was young and I grew up with my Dad. I remember we didn’t have much at first, but I was never with out.  In college I was doing an internship in Wisconsin and called him crying over a bad night I had. He was driving home from a work trip about 10-15 hours from where I was and offered to drive over? I was like Dad no way you are so far away and I only have an hour break for lunch tomorrow (they wouldn’t let us take time off) and assumed that was the end of it. The next day I got a text an hour before my break saying “where should I meet you? I came just to give you a hug.” He literally drove all night – no sleep- just to give me a hug and let me know he cared.

He’s always gone out of his way to help other people and showed me by example how to help people in need. He would give the shirt off his back if someone needed it. He’s started multiple successful businesses and taught me how to be an entrepreneur and pursue my dreams.  I also inherited my bad spelling skills from my Dad – it is kind of a joke in our family now 😉 but I look up to my Dad in so many ways and am so thankful to have him in my life. I love you Dad! 

Now Cody: I couldn’t ask for a better Dad for our kids. If you’re a parent you know about the sleepless nights when you first have kids where your emotions are on edge and you snap at your husband over the dumbest things (well at least I did! lol) Cody never once complained about getting up with B in the middle of the night. Still when I ask him to run get the wipes out of my car, change a diaper, or call him frustrated on days I just need a break, he never says no. He always jumps up to help with out complaining. Cody is definitely the jokester in our family. He always knows how to make the kids laugh no matter the occasion. I love seeing the different bonds he creates with each of the kids because each one of their relationships is so unique. He works hard to provide for our family and make sure we are taken care of and I’m so thankful for all he does.

In honor of Father’s Day we are doing a special giveaway (over $700 in prizes) so you can honor your Dad, Husband, or Grandfather.  Head to Cody’s blog here to enter and read more about what being a Dad means to him.

Thanks for reading and thanks to all you Dad’s out there!
