How We Met
We met at the school that we both worked at. It was his first year teaching and my second year. Since I had started working a few weeks into the school year for my first year, I had to attend new teacher orientation with all the newbies. We had eaten at the same lunch table one day (I remember because he was wearing a bright yellow shirt and I love yellow!) and then we had to meet with our mentors. Since his mentor wasn’t available that day, my mentor invited him to hang out with us. I got to talk to him a bit there and at various other before school events before we went on our first date on Labor Day!
how they asked
We had just gotten back home from a date day. We had gone to the mall, did some shopping, and went to Texas Roadhouse (where we had our very first date). When we got home, I went upstairs to put some things away and when I came downstairs, all appeared to be normal. I sat down on the couch to watch some TV when our cat appeared on my shoulder (this is normal for him). I looked over and noticed the RING on his collar!
I didn’t know what else to say other than “Jay! Jay!” as I started to tear up. When he asked me if I would marry him, of course I said yes! It was so perfect for us and I couldn’t be happier!
