Saturday, April 6th 2019 will go down as one of the most important days of my life. And luckily, the big moment was caught on video!

For several months, I had been planning to pop the big question to my girlfriend Kathleen. You may recognize her from her work as a news anchor and reporter at Channel 8 WMTW. We've been dating since last January, and I've known for a long time that I wanted us to be together for the rest of our lives. When we visited her family in Maryland a couple of months ago, I made sure to speak with her Mother and Father to get their blessing. Once I had that, I got to work on choosing the perfect ring, and conjuring up a remarkable setting for the proposal. I knew that it had to be on a big stage, because I wanted as many people as possible to know that she's mine. And with the Portland Sea Dogs season opening this week, I thought Hadlock Field would be great. So I reached out to our friends their to arrange for Kathleen and I to throw out the first pitch. As the big day approached, she had no idea what was about to go down. Meanwhile, I was a big ball of stress, but doing my best to keep it cool. Finally the day came, and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. To see the rest of the story for yourself, watch the video below!

A big thank you to the Portland Sea Dogs, Channel 8 WMTW, and all of our family, friends, listeners, and viewers who have reached out this weekend to congratulate us. We feel so much love, and it warms our hearts to hear from everyone!
