The end of an era

this journey started in July 2008; over 4 years ago...

Reading through the story of my life has made me nostalgic, i'm so emotional right now.

I was 22...young, naive and full of expectations

I am 26 now and i can say life has delivered on some of these expectations

I have evolved from being the confused girl and wondering what the future held which necessitated taking relationship breaks and weighing my options

I got my heart broken along the way; salaries were paid late at work, a couple of dreams were dashed; everything that could go wrong went wrong; Discouragement, disappointment and dejection became my companion but day came after night and my hope became renewed



Along this walk i met this man


.....and he proposed.............

.....we got married............


.....got a fantastic job...........


and trying to live happily ever after!!!!!!!!

Now who said dreams don't come true?



MINE DID AND IS STILL COMING TRUE


thank you so much for going through this journey with me,

all my followers, all my readers, thank you for all your comments, for your support, for your comfort, for your companionship.

I however feel like i have evolved past this blog, hence, this is very likely my last post.
i'll still read your blogs, still comment here and there. and i can be reached via dolchic@gmail.com

Kisses,

Always and forever

Noooooooooooooooooooo! Why now?? I love your blog and will be very sad to see you stop blogging!
But I can't but rejoice with you and your testimony(ies) God has indeed been very faithful and you are an encouragement to keep holding on to Him!
I pray for God's best for you even more as you continue your marital journey and every other thing that He has planned for you xxxx

After reading this post, I went back to the beginning of your blog and read all your posts. It's amazing how you've grown and all the wonderful things God has done in your life. I wish you all the best in your life, family, and work, and I thank you for sharing this journey with us.

Would be nice for you to pop by and say hello once in a while, though.

P.s when you become a mummy make sure you visit us at www.superworkingmum.com :)

Afronuts said...

So this is bye bye?

Aaaaah! i knew it!

I knew that the moment some lady bloggers got married, they would stop blogging...I suspected Parakeet of doing the same...now Doll has gone too.

But It doesn't mean you can't blog again...after all Simply Mee is married with 4 kids..

Okay...maybe its because you're just starting up a new life.

I wish u the best

Tessa Doghor said...

You need your privacy now?

Tamie said...

I really loved your blog,a month ago I went back to the beginning and read all your posts. I laughed,smiled,cried...related to them. *Cheers to you* see you around.

RQ said...

i've loved your blog posts. your honesty and bravery in sharing your life with all of us with such candour. the good thing is that blogging is a genetic defect (linked to higher intelligence) and it will itch you sooner than later. you will blog again once the kids start coming and when you evolve even more! my best wishes for your next phase and regards to the mister.

Geebee said...

Wow! Been a while I popped in. You're now retired? Awwwwwwww! Hmmm hope it's not hubby that's making you retire o. lol. *winks*. Anyways it's wonderful to know you were a part of our world here and you'll definitely always remain a part of it. I trust you'll be dropping in every now and then though (even if it's just for blog rounds). You'll definitely be missed! Ride on, ma'am!
