The Love Story Continued

Following John's graduation, the two began to date more seriously, and on Ife's birthday, they became an item in Cozumel, Mexico. Ife and John have been inseparable since.  They've grown tremendously as individuals and even more as a unit. They've traveled abroad, ingratiated themselves with each other's families and friends, and have created so many lasting memories. The most recent memory came when John got down on one knee, willing to stain his trousers and crease his Ferragamo shoes, in order to propose. Ife, after having a hard time sitting on the park bench in order to hear John's proposal (because she had on white pants), said yes!
