How did your love story begin?


My husband and I met in 2011. We went to the same church and our love story began. It was not as easy at the beginning as we were worlds apart in terms of our family backgrounds but love conquered,

Tell us all about the proposal.


When I gave birth to our daughter in 2015, it was a difficult and painful journey I almost lost my life and my husband was very heart broken. As soon as I recovered he said "I almost lost you before I could ask the most important question in a couple's lifetime, will you marry me and make it official" LOL and I said yes :-)
