I always find it interesting how the universe finds ways to give us reassurance.

We’re moving to Costa Rica, it’s been decided, now what? We decided about 10 weeks ago now, that if we were going to do this, we were going to do it. Shed everything we don’t need, pack up and go – do a complete 360 on our entire life. The first and most tedious step […]
