Andrew and Dominic – Our Story – The Proposal

Dominic and I dated throughout the spring and summer.  I met his friends and he met mine.  In October it was a glorious day, warm for the month and we decided to take a walk.  Dominic had just bought a home on the south side of Milwaukee and I helped him with the improvements.  One of our favorite places to walk was Lake Park.  So we drove and parked at one and walked all the way through, over the bridges and along the rambling path.  Lake Park was designed by the same man who did Central Park in New York and it has a similar feel.

At the time, we didn’t walk hand in hand because it wasn’t necessarily safe. Anyway there is a spot with a great view over looking Lake Michigan.  The sun had come out from behind a cloud and we had stopped to look out over the water.  I went down on one knee and Dominic gasped softly.  Then I asked him to marry me.  He cried.  It was so wonderful.  Then he said yes.

There was no fanfare or even other people around.  It was just us together, looking out over the lake, happy that we were together and would be for a very long time.
