Wedding Day: He who finds

He who finds a wife, has found a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord. The day was filled with soo many things that I love...let me start listing them:

I love my cousin's wedding dress, It was a lovely sequinned dress with a sloping wrap that fitted her like a second skin. It had a lovely thin veil that was like cobwebs spun in a pattern, and she was soooo beautiful (am tired of using that word, but it is soo appropriate).

I love the cool look her groom was in, the smooth suit, and the lovely smile with tears in his eyes.

I love the ties the grooms men were wearing.

I love the dresses we had on - so glad I was part of the train.

I love the vows they exchanged - I had to fight tears several times during the service. It didnt help that I look so much like the bride and everyone was staring at me and wondering where I sprung from. and you know when I cry - my face just screws up, and I didnt want to spoil the lovely makeup I had on.

I love the pictures we took afterwards at the lagoon front of the university of Lagos. The setting was enchanting, and with ten bridesmaids and ten grooms men, it will definitely be a masterpiece.

I love the look on Vicky's face when he saw me after the church service. I wish i could keep that look as a picture forever. He was stunned. Half of that stunned look stayed on his face for the rest of the day, and he eventually said it out, 'Is it really you? Are you really this beautiful?'

I love the love that was displayed within the family - both families. They were extremely happy with the choice that each child had made. That cannot be bought you know - the happiness you see when your parents feel you have made the best choice and the relief they have that they didnt have to force you into a union with someone else because they could not have chosen a better mate for you (hope am making sense).

I love the day. It was the first of November, and it was a very lovely morning. Rain had fallen the night before so the air was crisp, and it was sunny, and bright.

I love the attention to detail that the interior decorator (another aunt of mine) paid to every thing. The hall looked enchanting, and the color matching was superb.

I love the gifts given to the bridesmaids, and the special attention paid us through out. It was very endearing.

I love the wedding. It was planned for 2000 guests, and covered by NTA Network, and Channels TV. I am looking forward to seeing myself on TV (:D), and looking lovely too.

I love the romance - they were just staring into each other's eyes for long periods. My cousin had tears in her eyes all through the church service, and even at the reception. It was lovely to watch, and touching.

I pray that we all find the one human created to be our soulmate, and recognize the person as that - our other self, and also that this happens in time.

It was a memorable experience... but I kept wondering why people were asking when mine was going to happen and predicting next year (Vicky no be u I dey talk to indirectly o!).

Hope we all get there....soon.

You know, looking back, I actually remember that Vicky actually went to look for the bride - he later said he wanted to catch a glimpse of what I would look like at our own wedding. His comment? 'heavenly'.
Well he was speechless at our wedding, even after we were all alone in the honeymoon suite. Priceless....

What is this wahala now? Why must such a tiny state in Nigeria cause so much wahala? It is not even in the center, it is not even an original state but a cut out of another. I really dont understand why every newspaper feels they must print something about Ekiti on the front page every single day. And this has been the case since it was created. The latest sensation is the election rerun that even our busy President had to take time to go and see. I mean, you would think with all the monitoring eyes, everything would run smoothly but no, another twist in the saga has been announced.
The outside world thinks we should be ashamed of ourselves. I a just praying that it does not get bloody, and that Ekiti will stop trying to keep attention all the time.

Am not dissing Ekiti o[that was for Vicky who will soon be my husband, so he'll not quote me after the wedding - he's from Ekiti :D]. Am just saying they should behave themselves.

Ironblogging - Blogging a week at a time

One of the results of attending CMS Africa 2016 in Kampala, Uganda, was the creation of an Ironblogger network, IBCOCO. The intent was simple: there is a huge huge benefit from having an online presence, for every business, and blogging frequently is one of the ways to achieve this.

Plans List?Carried out or not?

Have you ever planned the next year of your life and then after a few months, realized that nothing went according to plan? Well it happened to me. Back in October, I knew where I wanted to be in a year's time: I was going to be married, with my husband and I studying in a foreign country for masters degrees. We had applied and then things began to happen.
First my Dad felt I was rushing to get married (Never mind that he'd insisted when I was 17 that by the time I reach my age, I should have given him 2 grandkids for him to spoil). Then my acclaimed alma mater university refused to send my transcripts to the schools I had applied to. As if that was not enough, I had not taken my TEOFL exam which was required to apply.

Its now June. I lost the admissions because my transcripts never arrived even though my university claims they have sent it. My father has finally agreed to let me get married BUT at his own convenient time, and his own way (he has just declared he doesnt want us …
