Proud Puppy Parents; Our Boy Can Swim!

For weeks, Harvey enjoyed the beach, but never went in the water deep enough to swim. He had to be able to touch the bottom with all four paws. A couple of days ago, seemingly out of nowhere, he mustered up the courage the start body slamming waves and go full-on swimming. Now he can’t […]

28 Apr , 2015  

Costa Rican Colon

I was chatting with my good friend Julie last night for the first time since we moved. I was trying to fill her in on everything we had encountered on our adventure so far and she asked “so has there been anything that’s been truly a ‘WTF’ moment?” Meaning of course anything we’ve come across […]

Indoor Wind Storm

Throw back to a windy night at the Avellanas house! Let’s just say, there wasn’t very restful sleep happening there. Oh the stories we’ll tell about that place for years to come…

Poolside Chat

Poolside

“Oh, so you’re planning for your future too?” We are seriously inundated by the phrase “planning for the future”¬†and variations of it. Whether it’s a commercial for life insurance or wealth management, or your Grandmother is repeatedly asking you about it at Thanksgiving dinner, it’s one of those “if I had a dollar for every […]

Last night we met an awesome woman who is native to Costa Rica. She was born and raised in San Jose and has lived here in Tamarindo for the past nine years. We were talking about the school system and education in Costa Rica, and it was interesting to hear about how much of an […]

Swiss Chard For Breakfast

19 Apr , 2015  

Feria Fabulousness

Two days ago, I didn’t know what Swiss Chard was. Today, I served it for breakfast. One of the many things that prompted us to evaluate our life was our eating habits. Junior and I are both healthy, active people at heart, and we had become the opposite of that, with no time for eating […]

12 Apr , 2015  

Playa Conchal

If you’re like me (or even if you’re not), you’ve probably seen an episode of HGTV’s House Hunters International and thought, “Oh, it’s so dreamy; searching for a house near an exotic beach and having 3 incredible options to choose from…” Scuuuurrrrrrtttttttttt! Not real life alert! We were warned by many expats that have come […]

Hotel Living

8 Apr , 2015  

IMG_1520.jpg

We stayed in the Avellanas house one week, and that’s about all we could take. We finally decided Wednesday afternoon we would bite the bullet and stay at a hotel in Tamarindo so that we would be in town and able to go apartment hunting. Never thought I’d be able to say that I was […]
