Happy Happy Birthday to my Pappa!!!

haha, max took this when my pappa first met my little maverick.

Today my pappa turns 61!!!
every year when he blows out his candles, he sings that song, "Put another candle on my birthday cake, and then a wish, a wish I'll make..."

as i've grown older, i've become more of a daddy's girl.
it wasn't always that way.

which is why this quote i've written on his birthday card is perfect:

"It's only when you grow up, and step back from him, or leave him for your own career and your own home—it's only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it."

- Margaret Truman

Happy Happy Birthday Pappa! xo

I love that quote... I too am just now at 32 becoming a daddy's girl. I am enjoying this getting to REALLY know eachother phase.

Aw, I hope he enjoys his day. And with a daughter as sweet as you, I'm sure he will. ^_^

It's absolutely true, y'know, about growing up and becoming more of a daddy's girl. I realized I've grown closer to my dad more than I ever have. It's because being older, I have mental ability to appreciate my dad more, to really see what he's offered my family.

Oy, I think I just re-stated your quote. How lame of me. Haha.
I shall end now.

There is nothing more meaningful in a woman's life than a wonderful relationship with her father! That quote is so very true!
