First, if you’ve read Mayowa’s story before mine, mine is the true version. If you’re reading mine before his, you don’t have to read his because I’m presenting the one true story🌚.

So here goes everything: I am a huge fan of celebrating birthdays and I mean in any way that makes you happy- cakes, parties, photo shoots and everything. Being born is a miracle and staying alive to witness year after year is an even bigger miracle so yeah, I don’t joke with birthdays. On my 23rd birthday, I made my usual birthday post on Facebook and Mayowa ran inside my dm to profess love and propose marriage😂. Joking! But really, we started talking (one on one) on my 23rd birthday right in the comment section of my birthday post (see evidence below🌚). I remember us talking for about 20 minutes the next day and the young man has not gotten enough of me since then and he’s decided he’d be in my life every other birthday till Jesus calls us home.

We have built a friendship so strong that I can’t remember what life used to be before ‘us’. Every gist, every worry, every plan, every dream, every success, every disappointment, we have shared for 2 years. Beyond being my lover, Mayowa is my mentor and my best friend, my total package! Together, we have prayed, praised, cried, laughed, planned, learnt, watched God show up for us and watched our desires receive expression, (oh and toured the whole of Lagos💀) and I’m super excited to walk into the beautiful future God has prepared for us and our seeds. Oluwamayowa Mi, thank you for choosing me to walk this path with you, and thank you for waiting for me. You are an answer to years of prayers, my answer to prayers. Here’s to doing life and marriage with you, the way God wants it, serving our Maker, being your wife and the mother of your babies, spending your money, sending you funny and x-rated memes, forcing you to eat (God epp me), travelling the world and doing all of those things we talk about every day! I love and honour you and I’d stay doing both, all of our days.
