The First Man I Ever Loved

It's wedding week!!! 

I can't believe how fast the past few months have gone by! I feel like it was just yesterday when Amazing Boyfriend became Amazing Fiance and in a few more days he'll become... well, I'm still working on that...

But before ABF, there was another man who I loved with all my heart. 
My Dad

 My Dad has always been there for me when I've needed him, and taught me by example to the importance of family. I've always knew that my Dad had to walk me down the aisle, but earlier this year we had a major scare when he was hospitalized at the end February and spent most of March and April in and out of the hospital because of complications. Because of these complications, most of his foot was amputated. It's been a long hard recovery process, but I'm so proud of my Dad because he's worked so hard in rehab and this Saturday, he WILL be walking me down the aisle! 

I wanted to make something special for him and found the perfect idea on Pinterest. 

I wrote out my message on the frame then carefully painted over the pencil with brown paint. I love how it turned out, especially since I used my own handwriting, which I feel like it makes it more personal. 

I also had to give Dad and IOU on a picture to go inside it. 

I can't wait to give it to my Dad! 

And speaking of pictures...

This is a picture that my Mom's cousin, who was also her maid of honor, sent me recently. It's my Uncle Ron (who is no longer with us) helping my Dad with his boutinere just before he married my Mom! 

Seriously, it's too good not to share!

6 days and counting!!!
