Our love story started well before either of us were actually born. Our dads became fast and dear friends as young working professionals in Ethiopia 1983. That’s when Amanuel and I entered the picture. Growing up, our families got together countless times. I always remember seeing Amanuel’s siblings at church, weddings, but not Amanuel himself. Amanuel and I grew up in different suburbs, went to different schools, and lived very different lives. There was no way our paths would ever cross “like that,” until they did.

Fast forward August 2021 at a wedding we met finally!!! God’s timing tho. Sparks flew, but we kept them a secret knowing it could be chaos if things crumbled, so we took the time to make sure we were both all in before telling our families. In December 2021 we got engaged. It’s been a joy that our family friends are now officially family. And it doesn’t hurt that we’ve known our in-laws (on both sides!) our entire lives.

God Gets all the Glory!!
