Another milestone- Major this time!

Hi peeps, sorry I haven't updated in a while. Thanks Rinsola for checking up on me.



I have some very great news for y'all. I have crossed yet another milestone. Hehe You can check here for a previous milestone of mine.

On the 12th of January '08, I got married to my best friend. :) It was a glorious day and I enjoyed every minute of it. I was just a tiny weeny bit cranky (which is expected from all brides, I think) but thanks to my chief brides maid for calming me down always. More kudos to writefreak cuz without her I am not sure our friends wouldn't have had anything to eat at the reception. Another story for another day.



Anyway like I was saying, our day was great and most of my wishes came through-


  • Our bridal march song was "When God gave me you" by Jesse Campbell; T.D Jakes. T'was really lovely with all the long list of people walking down the aisle which included my only surviving grandparent (Mama). Can't wait to see the video :)

  • Still on the bridal march, I had my flower girls throw petals on the floor..even the pastor was taken by that...lol

  • Our First dance- we danced to "I was made to love you" by Gerald Levert... that turned out better than I expected, except for the few times my hubby was stepping on my dress..lol

The wishes that didn't come through-



  • I wanted a canopy for our friends to sit in, with favours I had ready on their tables- lai lai...people no gree...ok the canopy existed quite alright but you know Naija weddings now, they never respect the sign "Reserved". Grhhh

  • Spraying of money- lol...with all the adverts on Naija telly on arresting people that spray money at weddings and the fact that our chairman's wife (who was present) is a Director General of CBN, this wish was no where near reality. We got people to drop money in trays though- BORING!

Anyhu, above all I want to thank God all mighty for making Jan 12 a reality for my hubby, myself and our families. It was a beautiful day I must say.

Hubby and I are looking forward to a bright future together. :)

"I am the New Year"

Happy New Year everyone!!!! 2008 is your year of new birth. The Lord says "Forget the things of the past, I want to do a new thing in your life." (Isaiah 43-18-19). Let go and Let God!!!

By the way, a friend sent me this new year poem that I will like to share with you. I hope it blesses you as it did me.

I Am The New Year
Author Unknown Life

I am the New Year.
I am an unspoiled page in your book of time.
I am your next chance at the art of living.
I am your opportunity to practice what you
have learned about life during the last twelve months.
All that you sought and didn't find is hidden in me,
waiting for you to search it out with more determination.
All the good that you tried for and didn't achieve
is mine to grant when you have fewer conflicting desires.
All that you dreamed but didn't dare to do,
all that you hoped but did not will,
all the faith that you claimed but did not have -
these slumber lightly,waiting to be awakened
by the touch of a strong purpose.
I am your opportunity to renew your allegiance to Him
who said, 'behold, I make all things new.'

I am the New Year.
