How did your love story begin?


Apartment Washing line.. Yes we were neighbors and eyed each other everyday and always met up at the washing line on a Satuday together. Then after work he will pop on at my flat and I would pretend I'm busy (busy keeping eye on the time for him to come home) Then he asked me for a Coffey at his flat and yes yes and yes!

Tell us all about the proposal.


He asked me to take a day off at work for a long weekend. He took me to Knysna Analone Lodges. We had Lindt Chocolates in a cute bowl and under all the chocolate the ring were. He poped champaign and he got really nervous and Hot haha. I opened the window like 4 times
