|Eniola and Emmanuel|
Though we went to the same school and was even also a member of the same
humanitarian organization where I was a president in my final year, I
never had the luxury of getting to meet her in person. The day heaven
smiled on me happened in the month of April 2011 after I already
graduated and came back to attend an annual function of the
organization, she was still in school then and an active member of the
|A Girl needs a Man with Real Intentions, not a Boy who can’t Pay Attention|
the events that happened on my way to the city but it turned out to be
the day I will always be grateful for.
the very first time I saw her, from that moment my heart could not let
go. I went straight to a friend who was seated closed to her to ask
about the elegant lady. She was surprised by my question and said “that
is Eniola now, don’t you know her?”.
|The best things in life are the people you love, the places you’ve seen and the memories you have made along the way…….|
her, I asked her if he knew me she said yes casually, uninterested in
any conversation. I tried to create a conversation but she was not just
|There’s You, There’s Me, Then There’s The Craving In-between……|
I went to my hotel and kept thinking about the damsel I have just met. I
put on my thinking cap, strategizing how I would approach her for a
better conversation the following day. On the second day of the program,
I thought I was battle ready, the moment I saw her coming at my vantage
point that was carefully selected by me (part of my strategy). I put on
my best smile from distance and was following her with my gaze but she
did not notice me at all.
|If you were a movie, I’d watch you over and over again…|
|My mind thinks of you the second before I fall asleep and as soon as I wake up each morning.|
Then, I went to meet her (plan B), re
introduced myself expecting that to bring back memory, unfortunately, it
brought back nothing. She just nodded and greeted me casually and
continue her gist with her friend whom she was chatting with. I almost
forgot myself on that spot if not for a friend that came to tap me
|I love you for all that you are, all that you have been, and all you’re yet to be.|
|The more boys I meet, the more I realize that it’s only you I want to be with.|
From that moment, I knew she is my wife, my divine gift from God.
Later that evening I asked for her mobile which she nicely refused. I
did not push further as I knew I could get from any of our mutual
friends. I got the number and summoned courage to ring her the first
time. It was a short conversation even though I had imagined a robust
one. But step by step, effort upon effort, we became best of friends
that discuss just anything and everything. At that stage, I discovered
that I have found a treasure.
|Thought of you today, that’s not new. Thought of you yesterday, the day before too. I will think of you tomorrow and my whole life through and I will think of you forever because I think the world of you|
|You never fail to amaze me. Everyday, there is something new that makes me love you even more than the day before|
intelligence very apt.
Then, the most challenging phase came when I had to let the cat out of
the bag, I needed to ask her out because I knew the time was right to do
so. In 2014 January, when it was time for my resolution for the year; I
made her my one and only resolution.
|I loved you yesterday, I love you still, I always have, I always will.|
any distraction from this all important singular goal. I eventually
asked her out over the phone in one of our long conversations and she
declined instantly. I was so confused but decided to give it all my
efforts because to me; there is no going back because I cannot just
imagine a future without her. Every of plan future plans were shaped
with and around her. We finally started dating on 16th of June, 2014 and
every seconds of it has worth the efforts.
|Forever is a long time, but I wouldn’t mind spending it by your side.|
|I keep myself busy with things to do. But every time I pause, I still think of you.|
The first time I saw him was in 2010 at a humanitarian organization
meeting I attended , then in school. My first impression about him was
“who is this arrogant and proud president” and for no particular reason,
I disliked him instantly. Fast forward to 2011, he came for one of the
organization’s event as the immediate past president and started forming
boss around, trust me to ignore him when he came to greet me. I later
discovered how nice and cool he is. The rest they say is history. He is
my charming prince.
I am so happy that I got my perfect fit in him as he knows how best to
handle my excesses with love. I consider myself privileged to be called
his wife. Looking forward to 100 years together with him.
|You = Awesome. Me = Lucky|
The proposal happened on 18th of July, 2015 at Elegushi beach. It was a
little get together party to celebrate her birthday with few of our
close friends in attendance. Everyone was busy dancing and drinking but
me because I knew it was a big night for me. Few minutes to the time I
asked few of my friends to tell the DJ to play her favorite song – John
legend’s all of me. I knew the song will do the magic. She came looking
for me on the dance floor the moment the music began and my heart began
to race faster. I looked straight into her eyes and I saw our future
together. I held her right hand tight and went on my knee with a ring in
my hand asking her to be my wife and life companion. She was surprised
just as every other person and with tears of joy in her eyes she said
YES repeatedly. I put the ring on her finger and right from that spot, I
knew I made the best decision.
|You’re my everything. Everything else is just…everything else|
|When you say “never”, I’ll say “lie”. When you say “always”, I’ll say “true”. When you say “love”, I’ll say “you”|
She went to social media and posted this:
“I fell in love with the most amazing guy in the world ; my best friend,
someone who understands me even in madness, who helps and supports me,
who want and loves me, an handsome bobo with a beautiful heart .
The moment that has shaped my life towards an everlasting and beautiful journey happened some few hours ago.
I said YES to my boo
|In my wildest dreams, you always play the hero. In my darkest hour of night, you rescue me, you save my life.|
How he asked: ENNY SAYS
My amazing boyfriend now my fiancé is one of those guys that don’t
believe in proposals and all the romantic stuffs that comes with it.
My birthday was on 13th of July, had lot of gifts with a very lovely
dinner for two; but no proposal. So I just automatically zeroed my mind
on getting one that period.
|“If i know what love is it is because of you.”|
On 18th July he organized a birthday party for me @Elegushi beach with a
great turn out of friends, I was so happy and grooving away when the DJ
played my favorite song “All of ME” by John Legend, trust me I went
crazy with the song and went to drag my boyfriend to dance with me
Before I knew what was happening my fiancé was on his kneels with this
cute ring that has a tiny beautiful rock on it ….seriously it was like a
dream so I ran away and his friends had to drag me back.
He looked me in the eyes and asked me to marry him of course I said a big YES after crying.
|Together, forever and a day more!|
I have this lovely ring I wear all d time on my second finger, my fiancé
one day wore the ring on all his finger till it enters his last finger,
I even told him not to expand my ring.
Am really humbled and happy to be called your wife. I love you till eternity my love.”
