Today marks the day of my dad's birthday. I can't tell you how many sacrifices my parents made for my sister and me when we were little (and even now!). I remember one night as a kid, I ran into my parent's room at night, screeched to a halt at the foot of the bed like I normally did, and then shyly squeezed my hands together at my stomach.

"Is it okay if I call y'all 'Mom' and 'Dad'?" I asked. All the first graders at school called their parents Mom and Dad, and I felt so childish and uncool calling my parents Mama and Daddy.

They looked at each other (probably trying not to laugh), and told me of course. My sister and I had grown up calling our parents "Mama" and "Daddy" since birth, and let's just say my new trend only lasted a few minutes because it felt too weird and forced.

So here it is: Happy Birthday, Daddy! I'm blessed to be your girl. :) Same goes for you, Mama (minus the birthday, since yours is in December).

TA DA!!! I learned how to make a gif just for this very special occasion! You learn something new every day, right?

Anna: Thank you, dear! No, actually it wasn't! I'll have to give a tutorial on it. If you want to create a gif before then, here's where I learned:

Camille: Aw, thank you! Same goes for your blog. :) Thank you so much!! That is so sweet and encouraging of you, and of course I'll check it out. You're too sweet.

Rosa: You know I always say that about you behind your back! :) I think your parents feel the exact same way...
