IOL is spreading the love with our #MyHeart competition where we are asking readers to send a shout out to their loved ones to stand a chance of winning some amazing prizes.

Whether it's the love of your life, your BFF, your dog, your cat, your mom, your boss or your second-removed cousin on your grandmother's side, we want to know why you appreciate them so much.

Here's one of our winning entries from Sara Essop, who has won a personalised canvas print voucher from RNA Print Cloud.

My husband and I met at university. We started studying in the same year but only began spending time with each other in our third and final year – on the pretext of discussing our studies. We found that we had much in common and that’s when we realised that “This is Love”. We got engaged at the end of that year and married 4 months later. We are now married for almost 21 years and have two beautiful children.

My husband supports me and inspires me to achieve more. He has helped me to accomplish everything I have achieved to date. He is a part of me - my soulmate. He is there for me when I need him, is a great listener when I need him to be and most of all gives the best hugs! #MyHeart
