Finally, finally…we kicked off this long awaited journey….with God’s grace in a matter of months I will have me the prettiest wifey in the world! **Happy Dance
This past weekend , Faith & I took the much needed break from shooting weddings & instead took the 1st step towards making us husband & wife…We was pretty excited, since we had been waiting for this moment for what seemed like 1,000 eternities 🙂
We weren’t many, but we had a blast amidst all my incessant stomach flying butterflies 🙂 I thank our good Lord that this introductory visit went well.
What we did on Saturday according to our community is called ‘Kuhanda Ithigi’. This literally means planting a branch of a tree which symbolizes that the lady has been booked officially by the groom, and no other gentleman is allowed to ‘book’ the same girl. Though the celebration is early…help me say…THE GIRL IS BEN’S :)…This is just the 1st of many visits to come…and I am hopeful that God will see us through…
When we got to Faith’s in the afternoon, we were greeted with loads of hot yummy food…the fresh mango juice was to die for…unfortunately for me the butterflies in my tummy were getting the best of me 🙂
Me, Simon my friend, Faith’s mum & Faith’s Aunty….I was praying the heavens fervently for the absolute, undeserved & overflowing favour
Simon encouraging me, that all will be well. The girl will be ours
And I laughed off all the pressure & tension…puff! off it went
Faith’s dad & uncles had plenty to laugh & joke about…seeing how much tension it was causing in me
Faith meets my Auntie for the very 1st time…she really looked lovely indeed!
It is a bit out of focus, but I loved it all the same
Me preaching to Simon & Kate what to expect when their time comes 🙂 which happens to be the Saturday after ours!
Kate, Simon & Faith looked really impressed by my preaching skills, so it seemed. I guess they were laughing to how I concluded my sermonette, & finally the Girl is mine!!!
