The Beautiful Proposal
A week to my birthday we were in Lagos for a friend’s birthday dinner and the guys were having a conversation about engagement rings and they were all saying it’s just too much pressure for guys, my cheeky husband added, “babe don’t put your mind in it because your not getting any lol”, so from then I just gave up. We got back to Abuja and it was my birthday, he told me we can’t do much because he had a lot of work to do but I should just get ready by 6pm for dinner. I did so, he came to pick me up and drove to his house. Once I opened the door, the table was set and the candles were lit on the table, he cooked.
The first course was my fave, Caesar salad, the second was pasta and creamy mushroom & prawns sauce (yup I married a chef!), then for dessert he brought out a cake, he knows I love having tea after my meals so the tea cup was set in front of me once he cut me a slice of the cake he took a seat and said “shall we?” I picked up my tea cup and there it was! The cutest ring I have ever seen and yesss! Farid got on his knees and asked me to marry him! It was one of the happiest days of my life.
Advice for Other Couples
Marry your friend so just in case the love dies the friendship is there, strong as ever.
The highlight of the couple’s final wedding day – the Kaduna dinner, was a performance by Di’Ja, the groom’s sister.
