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 [...]

Rafting the Tenorio

15 Jun , 2015  

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 […]

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 […]

Bugs and Boats and…Best Buy?

14 May , 2015  


Life is different here is Costa Rica, there’s just no other way to slice it. I find that my friends from home are curious, but sometimes don’t even know what questions to ask. When you can’t really begin to think about what life might be in a particular place, it’s hard to know what you want […]

Perhaps, the Most Random Weekend Yet

4 May , 2015  


When I look back at this weekend, I can’t help but laugh. I started out the weekend with a “stomach bug.” I can only assume some type of virus since we know three other people who were suffering from the same symptoms this past week. Between my date with our toilet throughout Friday night and […]

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 […]

Hotel Living

8 Apr , 2015  


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 […]

Once we finally got our luggage and had a chance to shower and change, we decided even with a million things left to do, it was time to go check out the beach. Harvey’s first time in the ocean at Playa Avellanas!
