She orders a salad and chips to share.— Brent Lindeque (@BrentLindeque) February 4, 2019
She gets ready and always looks on point.
She snuggles you in bed.
She sometimes helps you shave.
She makes you her instagram husband.
She's honest, kind and beautiful.
She’s the light of your life.#Woolworths #LoveAlwaysWins #iFixedIt
He compliments your hair.— Brent Lindeque (@BrentLindeque) February 4, 2019
He knows “your song” by heart.
He makes plans for both of you.
He uses "that" emoji cause he knows what makes you smile.
He shares the remote control.
And loves you unconditionally.
He’s the man of your dreams.#Woolworths #LoveAlwaysWins #iFixedIt
