How They Met & The Proposal
In 2010 I had the opportunity to go to Nigeria for my brother’s wedding and upon arriving I had to meet up with him to deliver a package that was sent from his sister for him. So after we met he asked me to join him and his twin brother for lunch and after that we just stayed in touch on the phone and then in 2011 he told me that I was his wife.
So a few weeks leading up to the proposal, Mfoniso asked me if I have ever had French food before, so i told him no. To my astonishment, he asked if there were any French restaurants in Dallas, so i told him to look up some and if he found one, then i would go with him. A few days later, he told me he found one he likes and that we are going there on a date. I was so excited and started counting down the days. So on March 25, 2012, after church, i rested then got dressed and headed to the restaurant for dinner. on the way to the restaurant, he started telling me how blessed he was to have me in his life. I was blushing!! When we got there, the restaurant was nice, great ambience and music. So we sat down, and ordered our meal. After the meal i decided to order one of my favorite desserts “creme brulee” then went to the ladie’s room. Upon my return, we started talking, then the waiter brought my dessert and right at that same moment, Mfoniso asked me “where is the restroom?” behind me i replied. He got up and i picked up my spoon about to take a spoonful of my dessert, right then i looked up and saw him on one knee beside me. He pulled out the ring and said to me “Ufanima” (which means my friend and love) will you marry me? And i was in shock and nodded my head then later managed to mutter the word YESSS!!!
