30til30: Day 29

I have 30 days until I turn 30, so I thought I'd try to choose 30 moments that have helped shape who I am and want to be. Coming up with the list has been challenging...and enlightening. These final few ARE in a particular order.

29: Dave.
I married Dave because I thought he was pretty cool. I was wrong. He's REALLY cool. 

Here are some of my favorite pictures of him:

What I love about Dave:
  • He's cute.
  • He always wants to try and do the right thing.
  • He's sensitive.
  • Never saw an episode of Seinfeld, but he watches Family Guy. You do the math.
  • He is the most talented and creative person I know (ALERT: I am not, repeat NOT, overstating this).
  • Dave is old fashioned in a lot of ways.
  • He is the funniest person I've ever met. I mean, hello?
  • When we decided to care for Candace full time a while back, he was awesome.
  • He is brave. 
  • If you think you know what he's going to do, you probably don't.
  • He makes me laugh like no one else.
  • Dave loves America (but not more than Jesus).
  • He is a really good writer and editor.
  • Three words: jedi video master
  • I love that he has no idea what the previous statement is referencing (no, i'm not kidding).
  • He has "mellowed" in a lot of areas. 
  • Dave has a very unique perspective. A lot of people think they have him pegged. They don't.
  • He...sigh...loves weather.
  • He also loves everyone I love...and they love him. It's awesome.
How he has shaped me:
  • He's made me more adventurous (and afraid of heights at the same time).
  • Before I met Dave, I had a plan (that sounds bad, but trust me, it isn't).
  • He pushes me to be more creative without even knowing it.
  • He loves me in spite of myself, which has made me a more confident, loving person (I hope).
  • His story reminds me that God is sovereign, merciful, mighty and loving.
Dave - 
I just want to tell you three things:

  1. I'm really proud of you.
  2. I am happy that you're my husband.
  3. You are the best man I know.
I Love You.
(ok that was four. so SUE me)

Checking out his blog, he is a narrow minded uninformed fool.

Even if he was a narrow minded uninformed fool, at least he doesn't spread it anonymously.
