Happy Anniversary to me!๐ŸŽ‚
August marks year 1 of me living the dream by moving to Costa Rica in 2021 at the age of 54.
I burned the boats!
Not going to pretend that it has been all rainbows and butterflies – itโ€™s been a crazy, wild journey.
Often I said Pura f**king Vida!
An endless array of โ€˜firstsโ€™.
A lot of major life stuff has happened this year back home (to which I did return of course!)
My daughter Michaela and Alexโ€™s wedding (best wedding ever) ๐Ÿ’’๐Ÿ‘ฐโ€โ™€๏ธ
My youngest daughterโ€™s boyfriend suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury (Bill (and Briana) are doing so well) ๐Ÿฅโค๏ธโ€๐Ÿฉนโ›‘โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿฉนโค๏ธโ€๐Ÿฉนโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™
Getting a tattoo that reads: โ€œLife is an Adventureโ€๐Ÿคช
and so much moreโ€ฆ.
Hereโ€™s what I learned living in Costa Rica:
๐ŸŒŸa new language
๐ŸŒŸflash lights are more important than food
๐ŸŒŸif you accomplish one task a day – you are a super star
๐ŸŒŸpatience – that needed to be said twice!
๐ŸŒŸdriving + Costa Rica mountains = weekly near death experiences
๐ŸŒŸit is stupid not to have road side assistance
๐ŸŒŸwhat true blackness really is
And the most important lesson is thisโ€ฆ
๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅyou are never too old to start living the life you dream
and that Life truly is an Adventure
Pura Vida๐Ÿ’โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ„
