Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: Mama tried to raise a lady but Daddy won.

Mama tried to raise a lady but Daddy won.

My dad has a pretty tough guy face in this picture, one of my favorites.

Dear Tatus,

Well, Happy Birthday Daddy.  Don’t worry I won’t give out your age to my readers, I just wanted to say Happy Birthday.  Thank you for teaching me how to tackle life and thank you for always embedding in my head that nothing in life is given to you on a silver platter.  You have to work hard to get to where you want, and thanks to this I have worked my butt off to get to the amazing place I’m at today.  Thank you for taking my pictures for my blog and making me look and feel pretty in them.  Thanks for introducing me to songs before they’re big like Chandelier by Sia. 

I don’t know where I would be today without you and mommy being my biggest supporters.  I will forever be Daddy’s Little Girl and I will hold that title proudly.  I’m so proud of what you and mommy have done since you came to America with $5 in your pocket.  Those stories and lectures you gave me throughout the years, I may have rolled my eyes and said here we go again but I listened.  I listened every single time.  I may have not agreed with how strict you were (seriously it was like a military dad) I appreciate you helping me to develop the fundamentals of a good person who will never give up.  I  know I had my moments in the past and I was definitely not easy during my rebellious teenage years but at the end of the day I still thought you and mommy were the greatest parents I could’ve ever asked for, I was just too “cool” to admit it.

Wszystkiego Najlepszego z okazji urodzin.  Sto lat i jedna zima!

I love you Daddy.

Love Always,
