Happy Father’s Day! (#177)

This is an easy one. My dad is one of my biggest role models and supporters in my life. We don’t always see eye to eye but he loves me unconditionally and never fails to make me laugh. His dad jokes go unmatched and he always calls on his way home from work. I love him with all my heart.
