Happy Birthday Cindy!

So were you working at Disneyland by chance, when you met your hubby!? I worked there, from 91-92!

Great list!!

We weren't working at Disneyland. We were there for our all night high school graduation party. My group of friends ran into him and his friend getting a hamburger. They hung out with us the rest of the night and we exchanged phone numbers before getting on our separate buses. Interesting because it would have been the last time for us to meet!!
