Don't you love it when couples match clothes...?!!:)
Faisil 30 years old & the pretty Emebet is 28 years old
I don't know if any of y'all caught the new Essence mag' with Nia Long on the cover, but there was a contest for Valentine's Day where the men who made the nicest proposals would be chosen to pop the question in the mag' w/rings provided by Tiffanys ...waouh...
Ithought that was cute, and being the hopeless romantic that I am, I was waiting w/great curiosity to see who would be featured in the mag...and what a nice surprise it was 2 to see a brother from Ethiopia poppin' the question live on paper...
Here's what he said to Emebet in Essence:
"Dear Emebet,Destiny must have brought us together—two people originally from East Africa—in West Lafayette, Indiana, a small midwestern town. We were able to identify with each other culturally at Purdue University, and as we spent more time with each other, I knew I was in love. After graduation we were forced to part ways for our careers, but you’ve made it easy to sustain our relationship, always planning things for us to do. The distance has made me think about what I really want in life and how much you mean to me. Having met nine years ago, we’ve grown and matured together. You have become my navigator, never failing to lead me to positive things. You are the most caring and selfless person I know. We complement each other in such a special way, and I’m happier when I’m with you. I can’t wait to share my daily joys with you and, God willing, raise a family together. "
I can hear the "ohhhhh " of my gals...and of course Emebet agreed.
