I tell ya’ man, I’m lucky. Four weeks from now, I’ll be married, Insha’allah. (If you haven’t met my fiancee Folake, or heard about her, I’ll tell you in a minute.) I’d say that four weeks is still a good ways off, but the last 9 months of engagement have kinda screamed along. Perhaps that’s due to the fact that six of those months have been spent preparing for a little one. As it is, June 16th is the day I’ve been preparing for my entire life.
So let me tell you a little bit about her: she is an absolutely splendid woman. She’s my hero, and one of the toughest cookies around (even when she doesn’t need to be, she’ll be hangin’, tough as nails). In any case, go check out her website. She’s a fashion designer and stylist…on the side. She’s an attorney by education, who happened to give up the law racket to work for a big consulting firm as a investigator in business intelligence. And, a…well, a fashion designer on the side, right? She’s brilliant, beautiful, and intensely talented. And a fantastic mother, to boot.
I just wanted to take a moment and shed some light on this woman who I have given my heart to. She’s such an incredible addition to my life, and the bedrock of my house, and new family.
To my hero, my love.
