My first post! Who is JJ?

So I have decided to start my own blog. Why? Well, for one thing, I do like to read other people's blogs so I figured its a good idea to reciprocate. Another reason is that I am starting a new journey in my life (more on that in later blogs) and would like to share my thoughts and experiences.

Who am I? Well, my name is Joy (which explains one of the "Js") and 

I am married to an awesome guy named John (explains the other "J").

For simplicity, I'll refer to hubby as "J".

About us. We met in August 2007 and got married in 2011. took us 4-years to make it to the alter. Considering I am PHAT (Pretty Hot And Tempting), you'd think he would have proposed LOOOOOONNNNGGG before he did. But oh no...home boy took his time proposing. He asked my dad for my hand in marriage in September 2009 and asked me in December 2009.

We spent the next 16-months  learning more about each other, planning our wedding and most importantly, building our individual faith in God in order to weather the storms of life.

On April 15, 2011, we were "married" by Nigerian law and custom.

On April 16, 2011, we were joined together as man & wife by ALL laws and custom.

God has truly been faithful to us and with each passing day, we see God's hands in our lives. Incase, you haven't guessed it, our faith is also a part of who we are and we strive to live our lives in a way that pleases God.

So join me as I begin my new adventure in the blogging world.
