When Mariam moved to the States a year ago, little did she know that her neighbor would be a part of her life. Ademola moved right next door to Mariam’s crib and he was literally blown away the first time he saw Mariam, and the most exciting thing is that she was his next door neighbor. Whenever Mariam leaves her apartment for the car, Ademola knows the perfect timing. He ensures that he gets a glimpse of her stunning beauty before she finally drives off. That was his own way to say goodbye without saying any words to the lady who he has secretly fallen in love with.
Mariam and Demola share their beautiful love story with us and as always, we are super excited to share it with you. The couple’s love-filled engagement session captured by Dele Oyedepo say it all.

Our Love Story
I met Ademola a year after I relocated to the United States. He was the handsome next door neighbor who I caught on multiple occasions peeping through the window whenever I was getting in my car. I found that super creepy but cute at the same time. I still call him the “peeping window boy”.
Our first date was on my birthday in 2008 and that marked the beginning of our journey as man and wife. We are extremely grateful for our challenges as a couple because we believe it played a huge part in building our foundation of love and an assurance of a lifetime partnership.
I wish I had a more dramatic and mind blowing, the super romantic love story to tell.
But we had a very brief and to the point history. She was the beautiful girl next door, and I was the creepy, (very creepy) new neighbor who would watch her walk elegantly to her car almost every morning, actually EVERY single morning. (I am trying so hard not to look extra creepy).
I had moved back to Worcester from Rhode Island in the summer of 2008. After moving in, I noticed her getting into her car the next day, (You would think I would be busy unpacking) and since then I have been in love with her. (By now, you already know the reading on my creep-o-meter)
A few days later I was at the clinic with my uncle, she walked by me and didn’t recognize me. Understandably, because the most she had seen was half of my face behind the curtain. I told my uncle, I was going to marry her someday. (Because I want what I want and I do not quit)
One of the fond memory of our encounter was her catching me checking her out from my window as she got into her car. She does a good job reminding me of my creeping days, but she never admits she felt the boy (Trust me I know).
Our first date was on her birthday on October 21st, 2008. We have been through all the odds together and my most memorable life moments have been with her and our two beautiful children.
She has been a source of strength and Joy up until this day. They say you find love in the strangest places and I agree. Who would have thought I would find the love of my life behind my curtain?
I look forward to decades of amazing years with my baby and me and my baby’s babies.
WDN wishes Mariam and Ademola a home filled with love, joy, and divine blessings from above!
