Our Story
I’ve known Albert’s family for a couple of years now but because he was abroad we hadn’t met. It wasn’t until he came for a visit that we finally met. At that time we just exchanged casual greetings and departed. A couple of chance encounters after that we saw each other but I tried to keep my distance … I had a feeling that if we spoke at length it would turn into something that I wasn’t ready for.

The next day, in the process of asking me why I wasn’t home when he came by, he found a way to ask for my phone number, and although I was a bit hesitant I ended up giving it to him, and here we are today…

One evening after I invited Albert for dinner, things were not going according to schedule so I was in a bit of a rush.

So I was surprised to hear that in amidst of my mini disaster he kept asking me to step out of the kitchen to see “something”.

When I got to him I was shocked to see him on one knee with a picture frame that displayed three of our selfies and read, “Will you marry me …??”

I started screaming and ran a lap around the room before he could even utter the words. Eventually I came to my senses and stood still, listened to the question and said Yes!
