Our love story… 

Your heart knows things your mind can’t explain. So where ever you go, go with all your heart

met way back 2011 during the NACOSS elections. He was running for the
post of President, and I for Financial Secretary. 

First time we ever set
eyes on each other, it wasn’t love at first sight, it was “bad eye”
from me at first sight ?

Le respect est gagné. L’honnêteté est appréciée. L’amour est gagné. La fidélité est retournée

We both won the post we ran for and we interacted only during the
meetings, but we still weren’t friends. 

The first time we started a
one-on-one conversation, on phone, was from him correcting my
grammatical error one beautiful Sunday Evening. 

When you start seeing your worth, you’d find it harder to stay around people who don’t….

He thought I was a
church girl, I thought he was a nerdy boring dude. We were so wrong
about each other. Gradually we got closer, talking till late at night.
We kept our friendship away from the rest of the executives and

I knew the second I met you that there was something about
you I needed . Turns out it wasn’t something about you at all. It was
just You!!!!!!

one day we expressed our feelings towards each other. Gradually it grew
into a tight bond. We decided to keep our relationship away from people
and make it all about us, a principle that has helped us till this
they say being Male is a matter of birth, being a Man is a matter of age….. But being a Gentleman is a matter of choice….
He asked me out on May 20th and
I responded with a “Hi5” on that same spot. I knew I wanted him, I
wasn’t ready to make him wait. I trusted God to make him perfect for me.
We have gone through good and horrible times but somehow God got us
Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose Joy and keep choosing it everyday
July 2016, I tweeted about wanting  a surprise birthday party randomly,
but I never put any thought to it happening. And on December 1st 2016,
he gave me exactly what I wished for months before.
 It was the best
surprise ever. And in front of family and friends, he let out all of his
feelings and proposed to me, this time I didn’t respond with a Hi5, I
responded with a YES!!!!
We are super excited to start this new phase of life together.

You accept me for i am and would do anything to see me smile and love me no matter what
