A tale for the ages...

Our Story

In the flush of love's light
we dare be brave
and suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be
Yet it is only love which sets us free
- Maya Angelou

  • How We Meet

    Usman and I first met at an interview in NYSC camp. He was part of a panel that interviewed me for the position of a corps camp director at that time. After the interview, he approached me, introduced himself and we exchanged numbers for *official reasons*. Little did I know that he was feeling the girl and he had other motives post NYSC camp.

  • Our First Date

    Our first date was at a very cozy restaurant. He picked me up from work and drove us there. I remember feeling so anxious and excited. I couldn't even eat properly…had to eat more food when I got home😀. But at that moment I just knew we were meant to be. We connected instantly and he was such a perfect gentleman.

  • The Proposal

    There was no getting down on one knee and asking if I would marry him kind of proposal. He was more like, I want to marry you ooo so when can I go see your parents and who else should I meet. Straight to the point 😂.
