How did your love story begin?


Our love story started 6 years ago....
Everytime i saw him i got butterflies.... all over turning my legs into jelly babies what an unusual place to have always seen him than our everyday stop and friendly pick n pay store... my mom and i named him as the pick n pay mistory man.

As the days go by making pick n pay a must stop rutine hoping to se my mistory man once again my days just was not the same i had not seen him untill friends phone me to tell me there is someone they would like me to meet, with hesitation i ask why? What? And who?
They send me a photo of a guy....
With no real interest or even excitement i opened the photo.... and there he is... my pick n pay mistory man.
From the first time we met i just knew this was my soulmate, my friend and lifetime partner.

Magical Moments


Memorable moments i will always cherish in my hart on that special day was that look on his face his eyes... his fituque standing out as of a leader of a lion pack.
While the priest say a prayer for us my son the little sherrif was shooting the bandits.
After we have shared our vows the tears rolled down my cheeks ... while looking down to my 5 year old daughter standing along with us shearing our special day and seeing the tears on her cheak as if she knew it was memorable and the happiest days of all our lifes

The Honeymoon


With a relaxing sleep and the breath taking awakening of the thunder rolling crashing what better way of waking up on your honeymoon of a crashing sound of Houtbay waves.
Sitting on the deck with the beautifull ocean view having breakfast with my no longer pick n pay mistory man but my romeo and everlasting.
