OCTOBER: LOVE CONQUERS!
Happy New Month People!
Or should I say it twice to represent the number of months I have been away from the blog?
Anyway, welcome to October! I hope the first 9 months of the year have been favourable to you and yours as it has been to me and mine.
A few days ago, the Absolute love of my life, My Anambra Man turned 40 and yes, I’ve been unable to hold my peace. Y’all know how I am with celebrations, sometimes, I tend to overdo. Whenever I try to caution myself, I hear a still small voice whisper to me that ‘Life is for the living, enjoy it while it lasts!’
Well, that’s all the motivation I need to let down my guard!

This choice of his didn’t sit well with me but I accepted, after all, he is the celebrant and we should align with what he wants, right? One of the reasons I wasn’t too happy about this choice is the fact that this Youngman goes out of his way to make sacrifices for the kids and I. I know how much efforts he puts into making us feel special and happy whenever it is our birthday so I didn’t feel good about the low-key plan.
When I met my Anambra man, he wasn't really into birthday celebrations. Cake or no cake, he was good. But how can you be married to a celebration freak like me and not like celebrations? Impossible!
I can proudly say I have somehow initiated him and he is so pumped up about our birthdays, except his of course.
Okay, I have a confession to make here.
Maybe it is me overdoing as I stated earlier, but whenever this guy does something nice, as in extremely sweet for me, I catch myself being so restless until I have reciprocated.
No, it mustn't be the same gesture, I'll just intentionally go out of my way to make him happy too. By the way, am I the only one who does this? Please tell me I am not alone.
Anyway, we finally settled for a family photo session and it was indeed a memorable one. Every day I look at the pictures we took and the amazing family God has given me and I am humbled.

I ask myself in all honesty, do I deserve all these blessings? I don’t think so but God in his abundant and infinite mercies chose to express his unconditional love for me with these blessings.
As my fabulous tribe, I didn’t think it was possible for me to keep such lovely memories away from y’all.
May I also use this opportunity to pray for everyone desiring such blessings in form of a life partner and a lovely family to call your own, may God visit you sooner than you think.
Today, blog post is just me checking up on you all. Please feel free to tell me how our year has been so far. What have you been able to achieve? What are you still expecting before the end of the year?
My next blog post should be about how I have managed to stay jobless since the 1st of January till date. You don’t want to miss that.
Don’t forget, Tory Teller loves you and is rooting for you always.
