dads, fathers day, dominique with her dad and step-dad

Most people have 1. I am lucky enough to have 2. 2 incredible men who have tremendously influenced my life. Men of integrity. Men filled with determination and ambition. But also fun dads who have a wonderful sense of humor and aren’t afraid to laugh at themselves…or me. Thank you both for shaping me into who I am today. Thank you both for letting me be my crazy self. Thank you for loving me in spite of my faults and shortcomings. Gil, thanks for not being mad at me that one time I lost the mattress driving down the highway. Dad, thanks for showing your disappointment in me when I was 18 and called out sick to work when I really wasn’t. Moments of grace and truth such as these have been important lessons in my life. Dad, I’m so excited for our annual adventures. Gil, thank you for always being more than just a step-dad. I love you both so much.
