    This Awesome Guy Proposed To His Girlfriend With A Super Cute Children's Book He Hid In A Local Library

    "There once was a gorilla that fell for a giraffe, she surprised him by how much she could make him laugh."

    Paul Phillips recently teamed up with Nashville artist Yoni Limor to propose to his girlfriend, Erika.

    Paul hid the book Limor helped him put together in a local library.

    He then told Erika they needed to stop by real quick to return a book on the way to dinner.

    There once was a gorilla
    That fell for a giraffe.
    She surprised him by how much
    She could make him laugh.

    The two, you see,
    Were from different worlds
    Their first date, so nervous,
    He'd certainly hurl.

    In spite of their differences,
    It was love at first sight.
    His feelings grew quickly,
    His heart took to flight.

    The gorilla, his life,
    Unpolished and scattered
    Now refined and focused
    On those things that matter.

    There were simply no words
    For how lucky he'd gotten.
    Without her by his side
    Life would surely be rotten.

    It's hard to believe
    Just how happy they were.
    He could not imagine
    Even one day without her

    So he got on one knee
    And uttered the plea:
    "My dearest giraffe,
    Will you marry me?"

    He felt his heart beating
    Right out of his chest.
    He could do nothing but wait
    And hope she'd say YES.

    When she finally answered
    He could not stop grinning
    Because he knew, in his heart,
    This was just The Beginning!

    Of course, after something this adorable, Erika had to say yes.

    Photographer Laura Ingram captured the magical moment for the couple and put the whole thing on Facebook.

    Way to go Paul!
