Today is Chet and Rebekah Anekwe’s 2 years wedding anniversary, and the Nollywood actor took to his blog faceyourfront.com to write a piece for their 2nd year anniversary ‘The Cotton anniversary..’ Check it out below:
“Today is our anniversary. Our 2 year anniversary. The Cotton anniversary..
And we both forgot….
That’s right, both of us forgot our 2 year anniversary!
We laughed about it last night and this morning.. How could we both forget? I know we have a new baby, but forget the whole thing? How did we do that? It was an awesome wedding!
Although most people say that, but our’s was, to us. Small, intimate, with only close family, in the lovely Farmington Hills Michigan, where her parents live. No “friends” were there. Either you were a blood relative or non blood family, you were family… There were no “friends”, only family. And lots of love….
The gorgeous Nollywood superstar Stella Damascus graced our affair, at our Nollywood only table with Daniel Ademinokan, Robert and Debbie Peters, Bianka Johnson, Chuck and Chi-Chi Ajoku, as well as Bode and Tosin Ojo, whose GoldenIcons.com site even covered the event.
My father-in-law married us. My eldest son, my best man. Rebekah’s grand parents drove from Illinois and are the sweetest couple you’ll ever meet. And whom, with some of her aunts and uncles, ate pounded yam and egusi soup and loved every drop. The cultures and families merged beautifully.
We were then off to Turks and Caicos for the honeymoon. A place so beautiful that we still want to go back there and live permanently. Wonderful times, wonderful memories.
Then how did we forget our anniversary?
We realized, much like we don’t celebrate Valentines Day, we don’t need a day to celebrate our marriage because we do that every single day. Every single day, I thank all the blessings I received when I met her.”
