For all the dads out there…

Happy Father’s Day!

As most of you know, my dad had back surgery after an awful fall off a ladder. He’s been such a trooper though! Even though he’s still in pain to some extent, he made an effort this morning to make it to church since it was Father’s Day. To be quite honest, I did not expect him to be there, but my heart was very happy to see him there for the first time since the accident, which was in May.

This isn’t the best picture of the two of us, but I couldn’t pass up a good photo opportunity.


Here he is with my sister and his very first grandchild, Aly.


We love him very much, and we are so happy to have him as our father. He’s given us love throughout the years despite how tired he was and stressed he was from providing for us. I know he wouldn’t have it any other way though.

This is one of my favorite moments with my dad…julie cottrell photography 18

Everyone who attended my wedding knew that while he was “giving me away” I started to cry. It’s like all of your  life’s memories fill your mind during that moment. Memories of the two of us, memories of my grandparents, and thoughts about the amazing man that was about to become an official part of my life {who I know will be an amazing father one day}.  It was a moment I will never forget!

He’s an amazing man, and I hope he’s around for MANY, MANY more Father’s Days!


Happy Father’s Day,
