The future for Mamuje...

Happy New year guys...or should i just go ahead and wish everyone a happy Easter in advance?.

A lot of new developments has been happening in Mamuje world.

Your very own Mamuje is engaged to be married *Some of my friends will find out through this medium*.... Well..I wasn't very sure what I wanted. As time went on I realised that I may not find anyone as perfectly matched for me. I am someone who guarded her independence and single status jealously....the first couple of weeks after saying the BIG YES were the toughest. I felt trapped, I hid the ring in my bedside drawer... the whole submissive manual malarkey, the name change, the move...it was overwhelming...It's still overwhelming... one minute I was sure he was the one, the next minute I would burst into hot tears. Ogbanje moves. Thankfully, Mr man is VERY understanding. I have come to terms with the whole marriage thing. I believe its a beautiful thing.

Mr Man Bio- He is KIND, loving, humble, KIND, understanding, mature, he has great family values,  thoughtful, no-nonsense, strict, funny, GOD-FEARING, he is patient (he chased me on full throttle for 14 months),  he supports my dreams and goals, he is responsible and basically thinks I am the best thing since sliced bread. He makes me want to be a better person. Oh...and he accepts the reality that I SNORE like a plane crash in mid air. Nothing unrealistic or superficial about this one *huge sigh of relief*

Now unto my family saga...and the natives who want to have everything their way.  They want to buy expensive aso-ebi, trust them. They want a carnival, I want a budget destination wedding with 10 people MAX.... let's see how things unfold... Hahahahaha

Lets say, all I care about right now is the life after the wedding. The marriage proper. The ceremony isn't my cup of tea really. I haven't started any proper planning.... Yet, I have PLANNED my honeymoon. Hahahahhahaha. Yeah, my life is one big holiday. Looking forward to the rest of my life with Mr man.
