Greetings from Costa Rica

Hola! I can't believe it's been almost a month since we got back from our GLORIOUS, AMAZING, and MAGICAL honeymoon. Costa Rica is the most beautiful place, my friends. If you ever have a chance to visit, GO! We have already decided that we definitely want to go back.

There was nothing but 90-degree days spent in the sunshine - blue skies - and green everywhere. It was exactly what we needed. We relaxed, swam, and lounged by the pool. We also went through three bottles of rum, too. It was the best trip. 

Every morning I woke up to birds singing. I sat on our balcony and drank coffee and watched the birds and butterflies. I let C sleep in most days - I was up with the sun! :)

The view! Here was the infinity pool and the mountains....

A family of monkeys hung out near our condo. The baby was really cute!

This is Lolo - he was super gentle and loved to hold your hand. (That is my heart melting.)

Sea shells by the sea shore

OK, so I might have been a little nervous to zipline.

But...I DID IT! And it was really fun (and scary)!

The view was amazing! And, of course, we saw more monkeys!

I think we are about halfway through winter. I have been sick the last few weeks, so I have been watching ALL the TV in my pajamas and hibernating. I hope you are all hanging in there and staying warm! I wish I could visit you gals in the warmer climates (AZ, I'm looking at you, girl). :)

I hope you all have a fabulous week! I am just trying to get through this week. Tomorrow we move into our new space! imnotreadyimnotreadyimnotready. Wish me luck - day two of quitting smoking and I want to punch everyone in the face. Good times.

  6. Oh my god, your 'nervous to zipline' picture if probably the cutest thing I've ever seen... it's totally 6-year old Amandy afraid to jump in the pool or go down the slide. I'm saving it for my work background.
