Happy Father’s Day 👨🏻 to my daddy, best friend, mentor, teacher, and forever entertainment. Thanks for teaching me the value of a good life. Never taking yourself too seriously, but seriously enough to be of importance and influence. Sharing moments of silliness, solitude, clumsiness, celebration, studying, absorption, growing and reflecting with you have been some of my favorite moments. Thank you for never missing a moment of impact and traveling all around the world guiding me and accompanying me in what I love 🎞🎥📸🌍. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, I’m so thankful for a father like you! ❤️🥰 #happyfathersday2020

I recognize more and more as I get older, just how fortunate I am to have had my father, as my Dad. I was raised with the ultimate ‘girl’s dad’ – one who never missed a dance recital (even when they were on Father’s Day!), taught us how to cook, played American Girl dolls with me, drove me to auditions & prayed over me for God’s favor in the car before I went in for each one, ran lines with me (quite enthusiastically) & most of all, taught me to appreciate & absolutely fall in love with the outdoors. I’m so grateful for you Dad. Thanks for loving whatever I loved while always supporting & challenging me to grow – Happy Father’s Day! PS I forgive you for the bowl cut in my formative years.
