Tamarindo Beach Volley - Day Well Lived
We spent July 24-26, 2015 in Samara, CR for a beach volleyball tournament Junior was playing in, representing Tamarindo Beach Volley. It was a weekend full of adventure (of course), laughter, friends and was fantastic to experience another great Costa Rican beach town - with a totally different vibe from what we're used to! July [...]

We Don’t Have That Many Balls

23 Jul , 2015  

Sunset - Day Well Lived

In the past four months, I can’t begin to try and put a number on the amount of people who have said “man, I give you credit, you guys have a lot of balls; I would love to do what you did, but I could never pull it off.” Or something of the like. First, […]

Reflections of Our First Trip “Home”

Walk With Cece - Day Well Lived

We recently made our first “border run” as many expats call it. We’re living in Costa Rica on a tourist Visa, which means we must leave the country every 90 days in order to come back and stay here legally. I put border run in quotes, because really we took a two week vacation back […]

Third House Tour in Three Months

Upon our return from our first U.S. trip, we got to move into our new condo in Playa Langosta. We are very excited that we were able to find this nice of a place for long-term rent within our budget. For those looking to get an idea of cost-of-living, our rent here is $750 per […]

Let’s Play Instead of Pack!

Day Well Lived - Santa Rosa Futbol

Saturday night, we’re getting ready to walk with Harvey and grab carry out from The Shrimp Hole and we run into the owner of our building. We make small talk for a few minutes and he mentions “by the way, we’ve got a full house coming in tomorrow afternoon, we’re going to need you to […]

Rafting the Tenorio

Tenorio - Day Well Lived

My husband comes home at 9:30 p.m. on a Friday and says “This guy I played soccer with tonight is going rafting somewhere near Liberia tomorrow and has space for extra people, do you want to go?” I have been craving adventure. Now that we’ve got ourselves decently settled, I’ve had the itch to get out […]

The Toughest Part of Being Far Away

Day Well Lived - Think You Have Time

I often leave my phone behind when I go out for walks. I’ve become comfortable here. And now that Junior and I are down to one phone, I also don’t want to risk anything happening to it. In a beach town, your iPhone is no match for excessive sweat mixed with sunscreen, sand, dirt and […]

My Worst Fear; And A Reminder That People Are Good

Every Experience Holds a Blessing - Day Well Lived

We started our Tuesday evening walk on the beach with Harvey just like we start our walk every other evening. He says hi to all the other playa pups, and occasionally to the other human beach goers. He jumps a few waves and inevitably marches out onto the rocks in the ocean for an evening […]

#TBT Got S.O.U.L?

29 May , 2015  

1st SOUL meal

TimeHop is quite possibly the coolest app around. What better way to be reminded of sweet memories than a daily push notification alerting you to reminders of what happened one year ago, two years ago; some of mine have gone back eight years! I couldn’t let today go by without a #TBT post, because my […]
