To My Husband on Father's Day + Gift Guide

To think back 14 years ago to when I first met you, I never would have thought I would look at you the way I do today.

I remember so vividly our years dating, and even more so I remember the night you proposed to me. It was magical, and I can relive that moment in my head many times over. The day we said I do was everything I wished for and more--you were finally mine forever. 

A year and two months later we welcomed our sweet Bennett. I watched you as tears welled up in your eyes. This moment I will never forget.

Both of our worlds were changed, for the better. We became parents together. We took each day as it came, and learned the ropes of welcoming a sweet little person into our lives. I was blessed with being able to stay home with him, while you worked hard to provide for us. When you worked away for a few months, I loved seeing you light up when you saw Bennet step off the plane. 

Then we welcomed Carson. This boy seriously loves you. His face beams when he sees you, and his excitement when you pick him up is out of this world. He is your mini me, and I can't wait for him to walk in your foot steps.

You have sacrificed so much for us without complaints, and for that I am thankful. You gave up working late nights on your cars, for going to bed early. You gave up weekly softball tournaments, to spend it with your little guys. 
The days are long, but the years are short. You really take this phrase and run with it. The time you spend with your boys is meaningful--you aren't just present when they are playing with you, you engage with them. 
I don't think we tell you enough Nicolas--they love you. I love you. On Father's Day we celebrate you.

Father's Day is a couple days away! If you still haven't gotten dad something, I've picked out my favorite items..and if you have Prime you may be able to get them before dad's special day. Over on my instagram I'm having a flash giveaway for a Jane gift card for Dad--I seriously love their new men's boutique, and I'm sure you will too!
