It's such a beautiful blessing to have a strong support system. To have people who believe in you, the few who are the wind in your wings,  those who clap when you win, the people in our lives who put smiles on our faces on the days when our hearts are too small to feel the big things, those who hold your hand when you're too weak to walk and those who hold you up when you fall. 
February has been short. Waay too short.A lot has happened and I feel like I have already lived through the whole of 2018.From losing my nephew...Rest in peace lil  man ,till we meet again. You are a true son of your mother, you fought like a warrior... You'll forever be in our hearts.Till we meet again. 
....To the February heat. I thank God for the rains, but then sometimes I feel like taking back my words about the hot sun especially when I'm not able to leave the house because it won't stop raining. What a life. 
I've been through a lot these past weeks and more than ever I am grateful to God for the gift of friendship and love.Despite everything, I have had overwhelming support from my "support system". You know yourselves. I love you. 
So I took a few days off work to spend some time with my family (majorly my sister)  and to just give my body some rest and pampering. A treat if you may. I needed it, my body needed it,  my mind longed for it. 
I had the opportunity of vacaying in Malindi and in Watamu. If someone woke me up at 1 am in the morning and asked me to choose a holiday destination then I would effortlessly choose a destination with sandy beaches. It's my default place to go. 
Watamu has a variety of accommodation options some with a beach front and others without. So whether or not you would love to wake up to a beautiful sunrise by the ocean will depend on your pocket. 
Also, I think Watamu is a favorite of many because it has a lot of interesting sea sporting activities like snorkeling, deep sea diving,  lunch in the mangroves, you name it. 
Finally ,being the foodie that I am, a holiday experience is never complete if one, there is no variety in food and two if the food is not delicious. I had both at Watamu and Malindi. From sea food to coastal dishes. People, If flights to Malindi were free, I'd fly there each and everyday just to have pilau for lunch.
Having said that,  I'd love to share some frozen moments from my little escape. Till next time,  have a beautiful March!
