Thank you for counting down the weeks…then days…and even hours for your special time together.
Thank you for always buying her a corsage and making her feel like a princess.
Thank you for letting her pick out your tie.
Thank you for telling her how beautiful she is.
Thank you for dancing and twirling her.
Thank you for making a fool out of yourself to make her smile.
Thank you for doing something completely for Madolyn.
Thank you for being the kind of father that makes our daughter look at you like this……
Thank you for being even more incredible than I could have dreamed for our daughter.
She is loved.

She is beautiful and so blessed to have two wonderful parents. Her dress is gorgeous too!
What a beauty, and so incredibly sweet… not only does she know she has the BEST daddy in the world, but you can count on her having high expectations of the kind of man she’ll choose one day. (I know, not for 30 years at least, right?!)
Such a special night~
What a beautiful love letter and I have to say it, even if so many have said it before me- Your daughter is just GORGEOUS!!!!! Just like her mama 🙂
They looked beautiful and so are your words!
I loved this post Jeanne. The only words that come to mind are “absolutely precious”!!!
This is so so lovely…I have tears in my eyes..what a sweet man you have! Your words are magical. xoxo
Oh, how sweet! It makes me miss my Daddy who went to heaven just a few months ago, but it makes me grateful to know he loved me so much!

Found your blog through Simple Thoughts. I adore this post. What beautiful thoughts and what a wonderful husband. The world needs more of them. Best Wishes
so sweet Jeanne, I remember when you posted last year about his dance, and here he is again her sweet husband taking time for your daughter..precious!
Thank you for making me cry on a Monday morning.
OK, I am going to cry now…
Oh how beautiful she looks. You can tell she absolutely loves her daddy. How special she must feel and she will remember this the rest of her life.
Even when she is picking her husband (way down the road), she will use this as a tool to pick that right one. One that always makes her feel loved and special.
I need to go get a tissue now.
this brought tears to my eyes!
What an amazing gift your husband has given your daughter. She will undoubtably pick the right man for her husband, she has an incredible model!

as I read this I was charmed, by the end I had tears. Tears reflecting how wonderful the world would be if all fathers were like this, and mothers too. Thank you for this lovely post.
Oh, Jeanne, this is so sweet. Adam does Daughter Dates too, and I always think of how this will stick with her–how she will know what it means to be treated well and respected.
It makes me so happy. This is the sweetest thing ever. Good man you got there!
She’s so pretty! Beautiful dress.. What a terrific dad.
I have a Madelyn who’s 20 months old. Hope she can go to a ball with her daddy one day.
so sweet! You got some wonderful photos of your lil’ laday too! 😉
I hoped we would have a baby girl because I knew my hubby would be a wonderful daddy to a little girl, but we’ve got 2 boys for now.
I dropped by from Farmgirl Paints and I’m so glad I did! It’s been so encouraging browsing around!!
I’m hosting a love story linky party this week (fri. feb 12) drop on by and link up a one of your favorite stories – maybe how you and your honey met, how he proposed, or just something sweet that melts your heart – looks like you’ve got a winner of a man there, I’m sure you’ve got plenty of stories to choose from! There will be a give-a-way up for grabs for fun too.
Oh, wow, amazing. Just simply so very touching and special. 🙂
How I wish we all could have Daddys like that, she is a lucky little beauty girl and you are a smart women. Looking forward to meeting you soon. Linda/Luluz
Oh Jeanne! Your beautiful thank you to your hubby gave me chills!!!
Now that post made me cry! What an amazing man you are married to and what a special daddy. Your daughter is the spittin image of you!!! She is beautiful. I love all of the pictures. All I can say is priceless-priceless-priceless!!!!!!!!!
she is adorable. just so sweet and happy. your husband is amazing. there is nothing like a man who can make his daughter(s)feel like a princess. what special memories for all of you.
Inspiring post, Jeanne! She is so lovely.
It is so important for our girls to feel valued for who they are as God created them. I try to instill that everyday.
Looks like I could get some pointers from the Colorado School of Parenting.
Hope you’re having a GREAT week!
(I wish you could have gone to Artfest–I would’ve sold it CHEAP to you 😉 )
That is beautiful, thank you for sharing.
ohh, that made me feel like crying. Tears of joy for you and your daughter, but tears of sadness for my own daughters. I thought I married the man of my dreams many years ago, who I thought would be the father I dreamed of too. that is all I ever wanted for my girls, cherish every bit of it, becuase they don’t all have this. I just pray my girls will find husbands who are daddy’s like that.
I just happened on to your sweet blog looking for something else. Your entry about the Father – Daughter Dance was so precious. I wished all Dads could realize that a Dad is the first man a little girl falls in love with.
Thanks for sharing.
North Central Texas (a cold snowy place today…)
Such a beautiful tribute to your husband…these are memories that your daughter will have always.
TOTALLY crying!!! This is absolutely beautiful!!!!!
I know that I am chiming in really late on this one Jeanne but this post brought tears to my eyes ~ what a wonderful date and you know I looked that way at my Dad too.
