Our versions may differ slightly but this is my version and IT’S THE TRUE VERSION LOL
We've known each other since childhood days and he tells me all the time that he knew since he was 13yrs old that he would marry me. We lost connection over the years and carried on with our lives on two separate paths but thanks to that thing called social media he tracked/hunted me down ( my version of the events and I’m sticking to it) on Facebook. He tried and tried and tried some more but me being me I just was not interested. He tried and I denied until almost 5 years ago when his persistence paid off and I gave in – He is truly the epitome of the saying – “PERSISTANCE BEATS RESISTANCE”.
We were supposed to meet for coffee but it was postponed but on the very same night he whatsapped me for my home address I was apprehensive at first but my curiosity got the better of me and I give it to him, a few minutes later I was asked to check my post box which I did immediately and walking towards the post box I just felt this rush of emotion and feelings that I couldn’t explain.
I opened it up and in there was an apology gift for the last minute change. I get butterflies in my tummy every single time I relive that moment because it brings back those same emotions I felt that night all over again. Two nights later he told me he had to see me no matter what. The butterfly feeling intensified and I thought to myself its now or never.. He came over and when I seen him for the first time in over 15 years I just knew he was the one.. END OF STORY..
He walked into my life on the 07th August 2013 and he hasn't left and I fall more in love with him more with every passing day, He challenges me physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally which in turns makes me a better woman and partner for him.. What should have torn us a part has made us that much stronger and I know that together we can conquer anything and everything together.. He finally arrived - My Knight in shining armour, My happily ever after, My first, My last, My best friend, My forever. On the 07th August 2018 we will be together for 5 years and on the 08th August 2018 we will be starting a new beginning as I marry my best friend, my ride or die, the man the Lord made especially for me.

I love my hubby to be but Proposals is not his thing lol - and to me that is fine because at the end of the day I Love him and no matter whether it was written across the sky or given to me while i'm half asleep its happening and that's all that matters to me..
The entire day was magical from beginning to end - It may be hard to believe for some but our day went without 1 hitch we were truly blessed with good weather, friends & family, food and service all round. We are eternally grateful.
We are planning our honeymoon for the end of the year - but with my husband everyday is a honeymoon..
