Aurriel and Kofi’s love story began with a direct message on Instagram in October of 2020. However, at that time, it was nothing more than friendly banter. In May 2021 when fate brought the two together at a mutual friend’s game night. In that moment, when they met face-to-face, sparks ignited, and there was no turning back. Two months later, Aurriel and Kofi officially started dating, marking the beginning of what has been an incredible two-year journey filled with love and adventure.

After a demanding day at work, I eagerly anticipated celebrating my 28th birthday with a dinner thoughtfully arranged by Kofi. Despite my slight delay and the temptation to reschedule, Kofi insisted on a punctual start at 7pm. Upon my arrival at his apartment, I was guided by a trail of candles leading up to his balcony. Stepping outside, I was captivated by the sight of flowers and candles illuminating a framed picture of us.
To my surprise, there were small tokens of our relationship and moments that held special meaning for him, each representing a letter. As I pieced it together, the message became clear: “WILL YOU MARRY ME.” At that moment, he knelt down on one knee and proposed. It was the perfect engagement, and a memory I will cherish forever.
