We Didn’t Win the Super Bowl, But We Still Vacationed in Disney World!

Disney World Magic Kingdom

Fourteen years. It took me 14 years to finally convince my wife to go to Disney World. Allie had gone when she was little, as had I. Epcot had just been built, in fact, the last time my parents took me and my sister on one looong road trip from New York to Orlando Florida.

Celebrating our 25-Year Date-iversary at the Hilton Garden Inn Central Park South

November 10, 1990. That’s the exact day I first dated the woman who would become my best friend in the entire world and eventually my wife. Allie and I grew up just one town over from each other in the Rockland County suburbs, but we didn’t meet until we were both in college at upstate SUNY Binghamton, some three hours away. That night, November 10 of my freshman year, we both went to a Blind …
