Most Dads in the south grow up with the hopes and dreams that their son will be the next World Series or Super Bowl star, the Friday night lights dream, the small town boy done good, in an arena everyone can relate to. Growing up in the South I was, you might say, a little different than the other kids. At my very first baseball game I sat down in the outfield and made a bouquet of the flowers I had picked from the grass. In the 1st grade I came home and said I was thinking about creating plays and musicals. In the 5th grade after I discovered my love of rollerblades, I briefly pursued a career as a figure skater. I decided in 6th grade I was going to be the next gold medal winning gymnast. In 8th grade when I discovered fried food and my gymnast body failed me, I fell in love with taking photographs. After many years of art programs, dyed hair, and a few piercings, I graduated college with a degree in photography and promptly moved to NY to pursue a career in fashion. Through each phase, my Dad the Southern football player in cowboy boots and wranglers, met the moment and seized the opportunity to help me feel seen, never making me feel that my little dreams had squashed his own. Front row with a smile at every musical, hanging out on the sidelines clapping at every event, and framing every little achievement above almost every toilet in our house. Now at 34, the same Dad, in his wranglers and cowboy hat, runs my business. A business where we sell gowns and glamour, a business where we sell dreams. A job I am able to do solely because he allowed me to fully realize my own. I wake up each morning realizing how fortunate I am to have a parent who created a space for me to live authentically, proudly, and without shame. A parent who even in the worst of times, continues to steadily drive the car with the primary focus on making sure I am fulfilled, loved, and safe. Loving a child in their most formative years is, to me, the most important, and I realize how blessed I am to have had that. Happy Fathers Day to my dad, and to all the other men who step in to this role every day and help to change someone’s life. It’s not easy and we appreciate you. I ❤️ U, Dad!
