#AttitudeO’Gratitude… Day SAPPHIRE

In tears mehn…
I’m blogging with tears
No doubt I’m soooo happy that one of my besties is OUT DA GAME


Eniola Aderonke Ogunmekan nee Lofindipe.
I’ve known Enny for over 10years now. For me, it was love at first sight.


Something clicked. Aside the fact that I thought she was drop dead beautiful, I later realized that she has a beautifulo heart.
These 3 odd days with her leading up to her wedding reminded me again of how beautiful the chic’s heart is…
Even when she is angry…


Oh but I’m also teary cos I just know that things will change. Afolabi has the final say now… She can’t just come over for weekends. Neither can I. Permission has to be granted.


As her husband led her outta the waiting room about an hour ago, I was already stupidly emotional. Bidemi had to ask ‘Do you wanna marry her and keep her in your house?’


No!!! Afolabi is a good man… My Sapphire is in amazing hands.
Well, he now said he would run an open door policy for ONLY me… i could Drop in whenever. I was touched.
But of course, I have to realize that my friend is a married woman.


Can I even yab her like I used to? Like we used to? Maybe… But I may have to factor in the fact that Miss is now Mrs.
I won’t delude myself. Stuff will change. I can only pray and expect that it is for good.
On thursday, I said ‘…We should quarrel. A major one.’ And she stuck her tongue out at me…


She knows we can’t. Someone now said ‘you girls aren’t friends. You are lovers. How will you quarrel?
She said ‘true that’ I rolled my eyes.
Oh well… I don’t see that happening.
I see vaycays instead. Couples vaycays. Can’t wait for Christmas yo…
I see children. Maybe born on the same day by both of us…
I won’t be surprised. We share too much already, it is SCARY.


See the glass and nails please… Chai
Ok, I’m choked up…
I’ll stop here
Oh btw, I’m keeping this flower…


As long as I can. I hope it is FOREVER…
So what am I grateful for today?
I am so grateful for the GIFT of friendship that I share with Eniola.
Trust me, not too many connect sensibly at that level.
I am beyond words grateful…
And I know I say it a lot but not enough… I love you. I love what we share. And as much as I’m still teary Sweerie, I’m soooooooooooo happy you are now Married.


God bless your home…
And I know you will take care of ‘my brother Afolabi’
Starting from tonight…
Oh btw, you know you are a fish, right?


And you know why you are…

Had a guest debut on my blog yesterday
It was good for me, for her and for the blog too. Thanks tani. Will be featuring more in the course of the month.
If you wanna feature,  holler…

I thought I’ll share a look from today…
Here you go…


And another from her engagement on Thursday.


Actually more than one…




Err, second time I am wearing the dress.  First was Imela. So dont say a word…

    Ok in my defence
    I completed this post before 10pm and hit the publish button.
    Slept off in the middle of doing something else at home (yup I’m back home)
    Woke at 2pm to take a dump and realised that the post didn’t publish no thanks to my phone

    Sapphire 🙂
    Hmmmm…I was thinkin of a period in history when I was stil gettin to know Ezi (as an awesome friend nd sister). She wld put up some girls pics wit names like Pearl nd Sapphire. I dnt know if they were baptized wit dt name bt it struck me. I used d illustration smtime later to teach my kids abt ‘FRIENDS’ nd d many categories they fall in to nd d many ways we cld classify them based on their different attributes. With Ezi as an inspiration I told them abt hving friends so good nd amazing dt to u they become priceless jewels such as Pearl nd Sapphire. Nd my kids started their drama. They classified some as gold, iron, bronze, stainless steel, mahogany wood, even as bad as rubber band, plastics nd sewing thread. It was an amazing class nd good friends got to b known nd appreciated. It all came bk to me now, reading this post on Enny, better known as ‘Sapphire’. U really must hv an amazing personality. Cos Lady E does no post on trash. I wish u well in ur marital life. Hv fun, make love, makes babies (call one of dem Dumebi, plsssss) nd dnt grow far apart from Ezi. She is an ever ‘Useful’ friend. Trust me, I know. Wonderful pics. Wonderful post. Wonderful Blog. Wonder Blogger. Wonderful Blog readers. Wonderful Me :d

      Your kids or you?
      I can imagine why they love you this much…
      And I see you are putting your special brand of crazy in them
      Ehen… Sewing thread ke… loooooool.
      I think I have special names for my close friends… funny enough it wasn’t planned. Just reading this comment showed me that…
      Enny is amazing… you know very precious and rare… I can’t even fully explain…
      Lol at calling one of them dumebi…
      Please shift. If she tilts the igbo way, she will go for olaedo cos she gave herself that igbo name after I gave me omoteniola. I think ahe asked me for the meaning and gave herself that.
      And she loves it. So shift with ur dumebi hehehe.
      Thanks for the compliment sugar…
      I am sure she won’t grow far apart… She fittn’t.
      And yes oooo wonderful everything and even wonderful booski of life…
      Love you very much love
