It's my dad's birthday! And as you may have noticed from Instagram, I am in Michigan for the celebrations. Last night we had a fabulous dinner at this wine bar, and today my brother and his adorable girlfriend are coming home to continue the festivities. 

So, I would like to take this opportunity to say happy birthday to one of the funniest, smartest and kindest men I know. You were the first man I ever loved, and I really appreciate that you didn't cry at the wedding and turn me into a sobbing disaster. Way to hold up your end of the bargain. 

I love you dad.
