My Valentine BAE

Hey everybody!

Happy Valentine's Day!
Ten years ago, Valentine's Day changed for me. It went from being about me and a lady to about Ellie.  I'm thinking if you're a dad reading this, you know exactly what I'm talking about. I'm not too naive to think that sometimes when it comes to Meredith and me, I can be quick to put myself first (sorry babe! I'm lucky you put up with me!), but when it comes to Ellie something in me is quite different. Which is why after a miserable couple of nights of feeling super sick, and too much time driving in the car, I still put on my KDS Dad shirt, crawled into the car and made my way to Joplin to watch my BAE dance at a competition (her first solo dance!).
I'm so happy I did. Though I feel absolutely pitiful, seeing her do what she loves helps me forget all else and give attention to what matters most.  Y'all, I've never known love like I did the very moment I first held Elizabeth Claire. Is there a better way to spend Valentine's Day? Definitely not.

Talk to you soon,
