Kickstarting my new year resolution in Assinie – Ivory Coast

It feels always amazing to kick off the new year at HOME, AWAY HOME, specially at “Les marines de Babihana”.

My New Year’s Resolution is to spend more time with family. It’s easy to set resolution and it’s easier not to take action upon them. Family happens to be ” the fifth element of nature ” like Ron le H uses to say.” and it’s a Must take care of each other. 

Will.I.Am, Nana and I enjoyed the incredible sunset. 

Will.I.Am was growing and adapting so fast at only 5 months. 

We were having so much fun, it’s such a treat. 

Mom gave us at an early age the desir to have an healthy and active lifestyle by bringing us at swimming classes at “GSPM indénié”  every saturday when she was going to the Adjamé market. I’m so glad to see that Mary J is also giving to Anna and Lily this love for water. As for Will.I.Am and I no need to say that Nana, a lifeguard for almost 10 years of her life and for having grown up with a swimming pool at home, swimming is definitely a frequent hobby for us.  

It’s always nostalgic to catch up with my lovely sis Mary J, Tchoum back on the motherland to take her “Lily’s Walkin” venture to another level. 

She is such a go getter, I’m so proud of her.  

“You go through life wondering what is it all about but at the end of the day it’s all about family.

-Rod Stewart, Singer-songwriter.

Quality time at work and Quantity time with Family

Me and my brother in law Pirlovitch getting refreshed for the a new year start.

This is mom, between us. 

These moments never get old. 

I’m thankful for having the chance to spend some quality time with family.
