The Story of Us

This morning, The Pilot and I were featured on one of my favorite blogs: Long Distance Loving. Every Wednesday, {AV} features a couple that is in a long distance relationship. The stories that she has featured have been great and I've enjoyed reading every one of them and it was so fun to be featured ourselves!

{AV} referred to us "a jetsetting pair" and that's definitely true. From our first date on a plane ride over Daytona Beach to multiple trips jetting back and forth from New York to Florida, New Jersey to Boston, New Jersey to Florida and now, New Jersey to New York, we've definitely racked up the mileage on planes, trains and automobiles just trying to see each other.

With our anniversary coming up this weekend, I thought it might be fun to tell you some things about us.
  • We met in high school. We worked in the main office together during our free period of our senior year. The secretaries who worked there always used to tell us that we were going to end up together. We both thought that was really awkward.
  • We actually went to prom together...not as dates but with the same group of friends. I went with one of his good friends. 
  • He was the captain of the football team. I was the furthest thing from a cheerleader you could have found at our high school.  
  • It was during our senior year of college that we bumped into each other again and sparks started flying right away. 
  • One of our first dates was to Disney World. On one of our second, he took me flying over Daytona Beach in a tiny little Cessna 152 plane. 
  • Our birthdays are 1 week apart.
  • It took us a year of dating before we went ahead and made it "Facebook official." 
  • We're both huge Mets and Jets fans. The only sport we disagree on is hockey. (Devils suck, just kidding babe...not really)
  • Sometimes it's scary how much we can read each other's minds. 
  • Every year for New Year's, we go somewhere and buy a bottle of wine to drink the following year on New Year's. This year, our bottle of wine broke so we're hunting for a new bottle to replace last year's...I think this year we should buy 2...just to be safe. 
  • We get a long with each other's families really well. In my case, I think my dad likes him more than he likes me. 
  • I love that he flies planes. I think his job is the most interesting thing in the world and I love that he has different stories to tell from work every day. 

So that's that. It's been 2 years since that fateful day when we made our lives public to the world of Facebook and became "official" and almost 3 years since we bumped into each other that night before Thanksgiving. Since then, it's been a blast and I wouldn't change it for anything.

Happy Anniversary babe, I love you.

    I just wanted to say that I stumbled upon your blog completely randomly today, and I absolutrly LOVE it. I don't even want to admit how unproductive I have been today because I've been reading it :) You have inspired me to start my own 25 before 25 list, which I will start in March after my 24th. I'll give myself a year. I have always had a bucket list, but it doesn't have a concrete timestamp on it so they rarely get accomplished. I am super excited about having 25 realisticc goals before me for next year!

    Also, I see that you are running in the hot chocolate race in DC soon!! I am, too. Maybe I will get to meet you :)
