A love story & giveaway
My husband and I will be celebrating our 11th anniversary on the 20th of February this year. Eleven years is almost half of my life so that alone says a lot about how much love I have for this man.
Since it is the month of love I wanted to share the story of how we met and a bit about us as a couple with you because our story isn’t the most traditional and neither is our marriage.
We had a mutual friend who in exchange for some girl’s numbers gave me my now husband’s number so I could add him on Mxit. Yes, we met on Mxit. I added him, we chatted, we exchanged pictures and decided to meet up because we hit it off and obviously saw something we liked in the pictures. He fetched me from my house where my mom met him, Let it sink in that he met my mom at the same time he met me in person for the first time (no pressure).
Obviously I was so nervous when we met and I had been at the beach all day so I was as red as a tomato (it was a good disguise for my blushing) but the worst part was that he came to my house with a friend!!!!! So I wasn’t just meeting him for the first time, but his friend too.
The “meet and greet” went well, we carried on chatting and saw each other a few times but I was very unsure because I liked him but I was also scared of getting into the relationship so I held back a bit. One day I was sitting at home eating 2 minute noodles (which he ALWAYS ate) and it made me think of him and I just knew that I was in serious like with him so I pursued it with a bit of force but at this point he wasn’t sure.
The first few months were quite up and down, both so undecided about what we actually wanted, but then something happened, I don’t even know what, but we just got serious and before I knew it I was living with him.
We got married almost three years ago, it was a small and intimate wedding and a day I will never forget.
In our almost eleven years of being together we have faced so many challenges – deaths, financial problems, family politics, my anxiety, car accidents, and so much more. But we have also had such good times and have amazing memories – he went with me to my matric dance, he took me to my first proper night club (which he instantly regretted because I was such a joller), we moved into our very own home and bought furniture, got a puppy, celebrated achievements and all of those good things.
He is my personal comedian, he makes me laugh out loud or in my head at least once a day with the witty and silly things he says. We aren’t the most affectionate couple but we tease each other which is our way of showing and sharing the love.
There is nobody else in this world I would want to do life with.
Now let’s get to the part you have actually been waiting for, THE GIVEAWAY.
