even Dave gets tagged..

Emily tagged Dave.....
Here are the rules: You must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.) When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post and then choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

A - Affirmation. Dave is a master at this. Especially with me. I was first drawn to him partly because of this. He has this special way of knowing the right words to say. Redeeming words I always say. No matter how I feel he is always ready with words of affirmation

A - Artistic - Dave is wired to use his right brain. He is artistic, creative and more spontaneous. He enjoys working with his hands. Not many of you will know he is a terrific artist. Putting beautiful images to canvas.

R - Risk Taker. One of Daves favorite sayings are "blaze your own trail" He is willing to take risks and not afraid of breaking any mold. I admire that about him although I probably usually criticize him for it only because I am NOT like that. I can appreciate it and realize my need to be more of a risk taker. Not afraid of what anyone thinks.

O - Odd. No Dave is not Odd but he enjoys Odd foods. He will be the first to try anything and really like it.. Octopus, Tongue and His favorite Dog. Ugg

N - Nothing. The master of doing nothing and enjoying himself. It amazes me how he can just do nothing for long periods of time. He is so laid back... people used to have him teach other people how to chill out. One of my first memories of him is getting me to sit down for just two minutes and do nothing (in a really busy time) drove me nuts. But secretly (don't tell him) i wish i was more like him and could just sit and do nothing more.
