Amish Girl and Worldly Boy

In amidst all the wedding posts (loads more on that to come!) and the moving house etc (Warr and I move into our first husband-and-wife house together today!). I have received such lovely emails, comments and messages from indieBerries readers - thank you all so much! It means so much to me (and i forward some of them to The Warr - he loves to have his inbox flooded), and it means so much to him too. One particular lovely lady wanted me to share her love story as a gift for her boyfriend's birthday - which I agreed to post today - 

So I present to you -

One day a long long time ago, "Amish girl" decided to join her mother when she went to tea with one of her good friends.

When she arrived at the tea party "Amish Girl" met her mother's friend. 
She also met her mother's friend's neighbour:

After she arrived at the tea party, her mother's friend's neighbour (i know)
suddenly exclaimed -

Amish girl didn't really think too much about this, since we was about to head off to South Korea with another boy she was dating. But a year and a half went by and so did the boyfriend. About one month before she was due to return to South Africa, she received a phone call from her mother's friend:

"Well Amish Girl! Now that you are single - you simply HAVE to meet my neighbour's son! I just LOVE him and you will too! Just trust me!" 
Amish girl tried to act nonchalant. But (like any girl), she weaseled his name out of the match-maker-geriatric and stalked the

outta the boy they thought was her perfect match.

When she finally arrived back in South Africa, the two geriatric-cupids organised a sneaky tea-party (braai) so the two could finally meet -

As fate would have it, The Worldly Boy, had his house broken into the previous day and with all the admin which that entails - he missed the cupid-braai.


But after that, and as how all modern relationships begin, Worldly Boy added her on

They chatted.
and a conversation began:

Soon after this, Worldly boy came to Amish's house to pick her up for dinner. They were both not looking forward to it - she thought he was WAY too Worldly and he thought she was a very boring Amish girl that wore wooden buttons on her clothes.

But, in spite of it -

But "Amish girl" was still wary of worldly boy and his worldly ways and didn't want to get her heart broken. But she was also intrigued by the boy who she had such a strong connection with.

But while Amish girl was working with the poor in India -

They had never felt the same kind of spark with anyone else.

And Amish girl realised that she needed to be brave and take the leap.

They went on dates, they pranked the neighbours:

they fell in love...

...and the amish girl and the worldly boy, set up by two geriatric cupids, 
the testament to opposites-do-attract - 
lived happily ever after.


This weekend, Amish Girl and Worldly Boy are heading to Clarens for a belated birthday weekend. I hope you two little lovebirds have a fabulous time! Thanks for reading indieBerries.
smooches! x
