Happy Birthday, Daddy!

My dad, Christmas 2009

Today’s is my dad’s birthday. Charles Thomas Buckley is 67 years old. He will hate that I am telling the world how old he is, but oh well.

If you know me personally, you know how much I love my dad and I talk about him all the time. I haven’t talked about him much on this blog, but there’s not really any particular reason why I haven’t. I am so incredibly lucky to have a dad like I do. He’s smart, he’s hard-working, he’s supportive, he’s caring, he’s understanding, he’s flipping hilarious, and so on and so on. I know it sounds totally trite and cliche, but he’s not just my dad, he’s my best friend.

No matter what has happened in my life, he’s been there, and he’s been there 100% – for me AND my sister. I would not be who I am or where I am today if it weren’t for my dad.

Dad, I love you. I say it a lot, but I still don’t feel like it’s often enough, but I am so incredibly grateful to have you in my life. Happy Birthday.

My dad's college fraternity picture. Look at that stud!
Now you know why I am a Cleveland fan... I had no choice. He brainwashed me.

Look at all that baby brainwashing my father did.
I used to make my dad play Pretty, Pretty Princess with me all the time. And he would. If that's not the sign of an amazing dad, I don't know what is.
