Not In Jersey: Happy Birthday Dave! Happy Birthday Dave! - Not In Jersey

Happy Birthday Dave!

Friday, May 24, 2013


Today my wonderful husband is 35 years old! When we met each other, we were 18 year old freshmen in college. We’ve known each other for almost half of our lives! When I was trying to decide what to post about in honor of Dave’s birthday, I got to thinking about all the exciting, interesting, and random things that we have been through together in the past 17 years. So, since I shared 12 things I love about my husband in honor of our 12th anniversary, today I decided to share a list of things we have done or been through together.

  1. Met each other in the airport before a group trip to Israel.
  2. Went to Disney World for spring break in college.
  3. Got caught in a mini tornado while hiking in the woods.
  4. Studied abroad in Israel.
