Father’s Day is right around the corner. I’m lucky in the fact that I have a dad that I’m proud of. When you see me, there is no doubt that I’m his daughter. I love my dad for who he is, but there are a few specific reasons why I love him even more.

Here's to YOU Dad! Happy Father's Day!

Here’s to you dad.

Growing up, you were the bread winner and the provider. To this day, you still ensure my mom is taken care of in every way possible. When I was a kid, I always knew you to provide for our family. It’s ingrained in your blood, it’s just what you do.

I was a crazy teenager…

I’m just like you dad, there were some days, growing up, that we couldn’t stand to be around each other. However, I wouldn’t have it any other way. We drive each other crazy, but at the end of the day, we’re family. I thought I knew it all, dad, but really, I was just being a teenager.

He’s my rock…

My dad is still the rock that holds this family together. My dad is everything I hope my sons will grow up to be. My dad is loving in every way possible. Whatever you need, he will help with it. He doesn’t even think twice about it. What I love most about my dad is he always has a joke to tell. He’s hilarious and he’s not afraid to tell us a story, even some of the ones he should probably keep to himself.

It’s safe to say that my dad has been and always will be my rock. He gives and gives and never expects anything back. However, he’s my dad and I want him to know how much I appreciate him.

These grilled bacon skewers are my dads favorite breakfast...I know your dad will love them too!

Celebrating Father’s Day with my dad

This Father’s Day, things are going to be a little different. I thought about what I could do to show him that I love him, so it’s time to give back in a simple, yet fun way. This year, I’m celebrating my dad, but with his favorite thing ever. Can you guess what it is? BACON! I’m making him Grilled Bacon Skewers, which is one of his favorite dishes. This will be served alongside a traditional breakfast. I know this is going to rock his dad socks off, no doubt.
