Dust off that crown! Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Erica Mena recently announced her engagement to Safaree Samuels and she gushed over her fiancé in a sentimental Instagram post on Dec. 31. The reality star revealed the biggest lesson she learned while reminiscing on her wild year.

“2018! Wow you taught me the real meaning of letting go and letting God,” Erica began her caption, next to a video of them dancing together. “I went most of the year ashamed. So distant from family and friends to everything becoming absolutely PERFECT! God makes no mistakes. My King has arrived,” she concluded while tagging Safaree. The Love & Hip Hop: New York star popped the question to Erica on Christmas Eve and as expected, he went all out with his romantic proposal.

Safaree, 37, had a grandiose firework display going off in Erica’s backyard when he asked her to be his wife. “Some people like to say I’m extra, I like to say I’m just me and I’m different,” the 37-year-old rapper later wrote to fans, explaining why he wanted to make it epic. “I thought of everything I could possibly [do] to make this an unforgettable moment and it was all executed perfectly! Merry Christmas.” Safaree pulled out the stops with the ring too, treating Erica to a custom made 14 carat rock in Asscher Russian cut with a cushion cut center stone diamond.

Much to the delight of her followers, Erica shared another nostalgic message as she prepared to ring in the new year with Safaree. The 31-year-old shared a gorgeous photo of the couple all dressed up, and wished fans the best for 2019. “Truly grateful how God blessed me at the ending of 2018 – 2019 is going to EPIC! Thanks for all the well wishes,” Erica wrote, before adding: “FYI Our WEDDING is going to make history.”
