Sorry, got so caught because today’s
I thought I had stuff but she has stuff stuff! I could probably fit my belongings in a suit case or two but well, she brought home 5! I think she needs an extra room for just her clothes and more.
Home is home! We’ve quickly settled in. We are figuring it out! I think the question that’s on both our minds is how do you move from dating and being in a normal relationship to being married?
We are re-learning and re-quainting ourselves with our new roles as husband and wife! Physically and emotionally, nothing has changed but mentally, things are ticking! I mean, we are both wearing rings! I sometimes catch myself staring at my ring finger, musing at how things have changed and yet are truly the same!
Light and love
It’s been an amazing trip and well, it’s about that time to head back home!
Checking out was painful!
That final sausage, cornflakes and chai mukalu (dry tea) was painful! Albeit, I was tired! The service was so good I need to first have some bad service! This place has been so amazing! From the food to the activities to the services!
If you are thinking about having a break from your usual life, I’d recommend this place. You have your fill in everything. Come with friends too! There’s so much fun to have if you have a crowd!
Midway our vacay and my wife and I thought it prudent to have our family here! No wonder this place comes highly recommended on the internet!
I am struggling with the air, it’s a little thin and so I get sporadic headaches! But that doesn’t take away from the trip!
This is the juice I needed for this trip! The juice I needed to kick start my year! I have enough photos for ‘take me back’ and ‘TBT’! I think I have enough jazz for when I was in Mombasa staying at this hotel blah blah blah! I worry for your Facebook and Instagram this entire year! Are all newly wed couples obnoxious because I am ready! I am bringing my obnoxious game on!
Conversations will either start with my wife said or just show people my wedding ring finger! Side note; I still need to get used to wearing it, used to it that I don’t need to think about it while I am wearing it!
Anyway, time for the big reveal!
Kano kalango! Or like Bad Black would say, kano kalangs!
You guys need to visit the Baobab Beach Resort & Spa! Trust me!
White sand beaches!
Thinking back at home, when you go to the beach and the sands are orange or even gray, and then you come here, there is a significant difference!
There’s more white old, mostly old people at the resort than black! I think we are about three or four couples.
The fun is limited!
We are going seaing! I know this trip is going to be fun!
I feel like we’ve over eaten! There’s food and snacks served every few hours! But we learnt our lesson! We are pacing ourselves! This is a 42km race we must win!
Its 5:00pm by the poolside. We are among the only countable black couples or even people staying at the resort. Like your favorite movie scene, when I walked into the pool, everyone gave way like dominos!
The best part though, we are getting the best service. People are polite to us, caring even to ask if we’ve been served better.
This place feels much like home, my future home. An infinity pool overlooking a white sand beach oceanic view with old palm trees and vervet monkeys running around!
I was earlier asked to take a photo with a white lady. I am just hoping it has nothing to do with my skin tone!
Today has been a good day, I honestly don’t want to think about the day’s end!
Let me first talk about Day 2 quickly!
We arrived safely in Nairo-bae as people call it. Albeit it was just a stop over before continuing our journey!
We got to our destination point before realizing our luggage had been misplaced!
But, God’s providence has shone and continued to shine. It was delivered in the evening. My wife was freaking out though and like has happened before KQ let us down and then partly delivered.
The hotel is amazing. *Names withheld!*
This is our second baecation! Had one in 2017 and we learnt our lessons. We came prepared, and I think it’s going alright!
I’ve just woken up!
I’ll add more onto this later!
Swimming is on the menu!
Today, when I woke up, it didn’t dawn on me that I was married! Now, much later in the wee morning hours as I wait to set off for my honeymoon, it’s creeping onto me that I am actually married!
Do I feel any different?
Yes! Yes I do!
Yesterday was sooooooo much fun! From waking up early to preparing the groomsmen to going to church, and going to some more church, and saying We Do, to the crazy photo shoot and later party! It’s been a great time and was a great day!
Weird thing though, it seems guys had more fun at my party than I did! Like, they balled out for real!
I honestly want reviews for my wedding!
Yesterday, God did it!
1. It shone the entire day! I was worried about the rain and how crazy it would be since our wedding was at the water front! But, it didn’t rain and we had a fantastic day!
2. It feels weird, in a good way, to be wearing a ring, a freaking WEDDIN’ ring! I like it!
3. Friends came through for me! Family came through for me more! I love you guys, and if you read this, I am going to revenge kindly on you guys!
4. It feels good to be called Mr and Mrs!
5. Yeah, I got the ring! Not her, me! I got the ring! 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
Happy New Year folks!
