IRELAND. We dreamed of you, visiting your shores and walking the paths of our ancestors. We laughed and talked about leprechauns and pots of gold with an Irish accent and we laughed even more. Then one day it was just me left to laugh and dream alone and plan that trip we always wanted to take. I went to the edge of your shores and celebrated a life and a legacy that was my Dad’s. I crushed the petals of a rose that once rested on his coffin and scattered them off your cliffs. I laughed, I cried, I remembered.
Love and miss you every day Dad ❤️ #tbt#ireland 🇮🇪 #laughcryremember ❤️ #dreamsweusedtomake#daddysgirl#gonebutnotforgotten#legacy#cliffsofmoher#ancestors
I wrote this letter to Arya the other night. I hope someday when she starts poking around in my social media history she finds this:
My dearest Baby Girl Arya,
Tonight you had some sort of nightmare and woke up in a half aware state of sleep. It was kinda scary, but you eventually opened both eyes all the way up and got your feet under you.
Of course you ended up in our bed. You fart in your sleep. And, despite having your own pillow, your head seems to always find itself onto mine. I can feel your breath on my shoulder. I study your face and take in all the lines. I think I am realizing that blinks turn into weeks, sleeps into months and weekends into years at what seems to be an accelerating rate as I get older. I don’t want to forget these nights. I want to enjoy this age but I also don’t want you to stay young forever. I want you to learn and grow up and chase your adventure. Be brave to go do.
But right now, I mostly want you to take your foot out of my ribs. Farter.
Daddy ❤️ #dadlife#toddlerlife#mydaughter#daddysgirl#sleepingbeauty#threenager#familyovereverything#foe
