When love comes knocking at the door, open up and let him in. It wasn’t love at first sight for Adanna and Leonard! Would you say it was fate that brought them together or Leonard’s positive attitude?
For the surprise proposal, Leonard kept all the excitement to himself until he was on his knee to propose to the love of his life. Adanna didn’t know all the get together was for her until she heard Leonard’s soft spoken voice that said “Will you marry me”. She was filled with emotions, happiness, joy and excitement when he slipped the beautiful ring into her finger.
How We Met
I’m not really a facebook person as such but I decided to go through my page one day and saw a friend request from one Psalty Uzoma and I’m like abeg who’s this one? I checked his friends and saw that we had lots of friends in common.
I later realised he was also in London, so I was like hiss “e don dey bored & dey find naija babe for London” anyway that was it because we never said a word to each other on Facebook and never met until last year June at my cousin’s wedding. He was a groomsman and I was the chief bridesmaid.
When I saw him he was like Adanna and I was like Kai this Psalty I’m tired abeg. He said Ebube (a mutual friend) wants your BB pin, I said ok but my phone battery is flat now maybe later.
To cut it short, he didn’t get the pin and I didn’t see him again until early august 2013. He chatted me up on insta chat he asked where I live and I told him but said I wasn’t home, I was in a salon. He said his aunt lived in the same estate so I should let him know when I’m home because he’ll be coming around to drop something for her so he could see me too. Well, we met and that was it because he never stopped coming. We started dating and he confessed that there was no aunt that he only used it so I won’t have any excuse whatsoever.
The Beautiful Proposal
It was on the 31st of January, 2014. I had just returned to Abuja same day from PH. He picked me up from the airport, dropped me off at home and then went back to work.
Meanwhile he already told me when he picked me up to try and make my hair because we will be going for a friend’s function that evening. So I rested a bit at home and then went straight to the salon.
He finished from work and came straight to pick me up from the salon. We where just driving round town and he was preaching love to me lol.. I became tired of the drive around town and asked the reason why we were just driving around town. He said he was waiting for his friends to all arrive the events venue before we go so we won’t be bored when we get there.
So finally we drove straight to this lovely and quiet restaurant somewhere in Abuja. When we got there, I saw a lot of his friends, and their wives/girlfriends. I was busy greeting them and before I could turn around he was on his knee with the ring and asked if I will marry him.
I was confused, I cried and jumped on him and screamed a loud ‘Yes’. Then he put the ring on my finger. It was indeed a memorable day for Leonard and I!
