Today is my amazing husband Dave’s birthday. I have been waiting for this day for awhile in anticipation. Today Dave is 28 – I have know him for almost 10 years now which is crazy but pretty incredible. I met Dave in college through friends that we both have. I guess I have my good friend Morgan to thank for meeting Dave – she thought we would be good together. It took awhile but we finally went out on a date. I knew he was the one when I called him to go on the Pick – a – Date at Taylor and we talked about AP Calculus:) Throughout the years I have gotten to know Dave deeper and deeper and fall more in love with him each year. He is one of the most kindest and caring people I know who is always thinking of ways to help others. He challenges me to be the best I can be and is honest with me. One of the greatest ways I see Dave’s kindness is with his mom. I remember the first time I went to his dorm room and he had a picture of his mom up on his desk – it was the only picture and it was hilarious:) What really stuck with me though over the years is how Dave cares for his mom. It’s pretty awesome. Another thing I love for Dave is his passion for the poor in the world. Dave has had the opportunity to go to several third world countries and I fully see him using his talents and his passion for renewable energy to help people in other countries. I also love his adventurous spirit. He has pushed me to do things like climb up a tower despite my hating heights or take a boat ride from Japan to China because why not. He loves life and takes each and every opportunity presented to him. Lastly I love Dave because he loves me despite everything. He is an amazing man who should be celebrated today – so if you have the chance say Happy Birthday to my awesome husband!
