Katie and Timothy
How We Met
Tim and I both work at a cyber school in the Special Education Department. We have worked together for several years, but it wasn’t until a conversation about a colleague kickball game that got us talking. Next up was our first date. It is no secret that I am a huge Pittsburgh Penguins fan, so when the opportunity arose for Tim to take me to a game, he jumped on it. We went to Primanti’s before the game and cheered on the Penguins as they played the Kings. Unfortunately, the Kings beat the Penguins 3-2.
How He Asked
The morning of March 14, 2015, I had decided to meet up with my grandma, aunt and cousin for lunch. Tim wasn’t “feeling well” so he said he would stay home and watch the dog, Max. Every morning, I would pick a note from the note jar that Tim had made me for Valentine’s Day. This jar consisted of 365 notes which allowed me to read one each morning. I was running behind that morning and forgot to pick my note. Once I got home, Tim reminded me that I still need to pick my note for that day. He handed me a note that he picked out of the jar. I began to read the note which said, ” After reading this note you’ll see, just how special you are to me, because I am about to get down on one knee and ask you to marry me.” I was very surprised and excited as Tim got down on one knee and proposed!
