We already lived together. We were having everyone over our house for Thanksgiving and I had a TON of cooking and work to do. We were expecting 25 people. That morning I just got out of the shower and it was cold outside. DH suggests we go for a walk with the dogs to burn of some of their energy so they are good with company there. I was like - ugh! I've been asking you for weeks to walk the dogs with me and now the day I have 100 things to do you want to go for a walk! Of course I was only "thinking" this and didn't say anything to him. I thought I better go since I have been begging him to go and he never does and now he offers...

So I throw a stocking cap on my head because my hair is wet and it's cold outside... We drive to our favorite hiking spot and walk away while the dogs are doing their thing. We keep walking and walking and walking....the whole time I am thinking of how I need to be peeling potatoes! Finally we stop and he pulls out a knife and starts carving our names and the date in the tree. Now i am really annoyed because he is taking FOREVER and the dogs are running all over and not listening and I need to peel potatoes and we have a long walk back!

He finishes, takes out his camera and takes pictures of his carving and then of us next to it. I chase the dogs again and when I get back he is on one knee. I cried and kissed and tackled him to the ground and didn't even look at my ring he picked out - then we chased the dogs again and walked back. He gave me the ring out our walk back and it was perfect! We announced after dinner with all of our families there! It was perfect.

I later found out he tried to ask me about 6 more times before that over a few months and things just always got screwed up. He even tried to ask me at a ski resort where I fell in love with him and I got sick and didn't snowboard so he didn't ask me. The ring also went to Dominic Republic for vacation I heard as well... but it didn't happen there either. lol

So a little background first....my ex husband and i had divorced....or well, filed and waiting for finality....my mother had passed just 9 months prior and my dad was just diagnosed with liver cancer..

So after a horrible day of finding my dad unconcious and comatose in his apartment and having him rushed to the ER i am sitting in the waiting room to finally see him, although he is in the ICU and still in a coma. I was walking outside to get some air and this guy stops me, I think he is a security guard because of his uniform and he asks if I am Bernie Baker's daughter, and I say um, ya and who are you. He introduces himself as Paul, a friend and co worker of my Dad's, but my dad was 67 and Paul was in his early twenties at the most....I told him where my Dad's room was and went outside

Fast forward a week.....Paul has come to see my Dad every night after work, and i am basically living at the hospital with my Dad while my ex takes the four kids. While visiting my Dad, Paul and I actaully become good friends. He is 22 years old and i am 36. I realize what an old soul he is, which makes his friendship with my dad more understandable...He is literally a younger version of my Father...
So we officially Met on 9/16/08 and on 9/24/08 my father is fianally diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer and given less than 6 months. I can take Dad home, which I do. He lives with me and my four kids in my house. I am caring for him and my children pretty much alone. My mom used to live with me but she died 9 months before this all happened and now my Dad is in her room, waiting to die. Paul comes over to my house every night to visit Dad and if he doesn't come he calls like three times a day to talk to him.
On October 26 I had been out doing some Christmas shopping as my ex had the kids and Dad had some visitors over, including Paul. I got home and Paul runs outside to help me with my bags and then he hands me a milky way bar. He said "the kids told me this is your favorite candy bar and you win the prize for best halloween costume" I was confused as it was the 26th not the 31st and i was not dressed in a costume. So i said 'what costume, what are you talking about" and he said...you win the prize for being the most beautiful girl in the world...." well I melted completely!
From then on it was kind of cute...we were not together but both wanting to be. I was 36 and he was 22. My dad was dying and this was not the time for a relationship, not to mention my divorce was not even finalized. We went on for a while just like that...nothing going on, but both of us wishing...
Then one day in late November, i took my dog out for a walk and he was coming to visit my dad and he found me out walking the dog....he stopped me, got out of his car and walked with me. We walked by this big Pine tree and he just stopped and kissed me....then I knew he was who I am meant to be with
My dad died Dec 6, 2008
A year later to the day of our first kiss, we went back to that tree....
after my dad died, I left that house and moved. We were just driving by to see it and we stopped by "our tree". We were standing there and he said "look at those stars, they're beautiful" The sky was full of them! I said ya they are as I looked up and when I looked down he was in front of me on one knee, with a ring. He grabbed my hand and said, "will you marry me and make me the happiest man in the world!" of course, I said yes....
It was truly the most amazing memory.....
