Dear Dad,

You have watched me grow into the person I am today. You have always been there for me through so many ups and downs. You were always someone I could laugh with and have a great time with. You have seen me cry over boys who broke my heart time and time again.

Now that I have found the love of my life, I want you to know that I haven't forgotten that you were the first man to ever love me. You were the first man I was dependent on and the first man I could trust. You were the first man to hold me, the first man to think I was beautiful, the first man I danced with, and the first man who has never and will never break my heart.

I don't want you to think that I have forgotten about any of my childhood memories that I shared with you. I'll never forget how you taught me how to ride a bike and then eventually drive a car. I'll never forget you helping me with my math homework or tucking me in at night. I'll never forget how much you pushed me to be the best version of myself that I could be. I want you to know that I value everything you have done for me and taught me.

I'm sorry for all of my years that I drove you crazy, especially as a teenager. Despite the hell I put you through, you never stopped loving me. Thank you for your endless love and support, Dad. I wouldn't be following my dreams if I didn't have you here cheering me on.

No matter who you walk me down the aisle to, I'll never forget that I was your little girl first. You've shown me what a real man is and how a woman should be treated. Thank you for being the first man I ever loved, Daddy, I wouldn't want it to be anyone else. You're the best dad any girl could ever ask for.

Love, forever and always,

Your Little Girl
