The Day After

First day after the proposal!!! I feel different, complete somehow. Psyche! Nothing much has changed, except that, I can't stop singing. Woke up this morning to no light as usual yet that didn't bother me as much usual. So maybe something is different. It didn't last though. By the time I figured out that I didn't have a clue where to start planning this wedding from, I was hyperventilating. Okay, maybe that's too dramatic but I was somewhat scared. See, I always dreamt that my wedding would be a resounding success but I never thought about how I would make that dream come true.

He Proposed!

OMG! OMG!! OMG!!! He proposed! Uche got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was blubbering like an idiot oh, tears everywhere. Now that I think about it, I don’t think I’ve cried in front of him before. Embarrassing!!! Thank God there were no cameras to record it. I would have to hunt people down to delete the evidence. The proposal was beautiful!!! Considering I always said I didn’t want a public one, I am glad for once, he didn’t listen to me. He proposed to me at the airport, can you imagine? International airport for that matter.
