I always considered myself a daddy's girl growing up. Whatever he thought was cool - I thought it was too. Heck, this went as far as liking Billy Ray Cyrus' "Achy, Breaky Heart" a million years ago - haha! Now, I still think he walks on water. The only bummer is, I don't get to see him nearly as much as I'd like...it rather sucks living in South Carolina when he is in New Jersey. But, we make the best out of it and I'm super excited that we get to spend a week at the beach with him, my stepmom & sisters in July!
Here are some pics of one of my favorite moments with my dad - my wedding day:
My stepdad came into my life when I was about 10. I won't lie, I hated him. Really! I threw stuff at him and was a straight up brat when he started dating my mom. It wasn't because he was mean to me or a bad guy...he just wasn't my daddy. However, I actually grew to love him dearly and can't imagine how I would have turned out without him. He accepted both my brother and myself as his own. I'm truly grateful to have him in my life!

As you can see - I am surrounded by some awesome men. They are smart, strong, dependable and loving. Will is also an amazing man and was a great dad to Sophie. I hate to admit it, but I think she liked him more than me sometimes. Should Will and I decide to have two-legged children one day, I know he too will be an amazing father.
