I haven't posted for so long. I'm so lame and boring! I need to rekindle my relationship with my blog. Well, we've been back for 2 1/2 weeks from Costa Rica and it feels like it was a dream. I think about our trip and it seems like I wasn't there for 8 wonderful days. Coming back was kind of an adjustment. Life down there is so chill and I had a hard time being efficient at home and at work. "Pura Vida," means pure life, and the Costa Ricans always say this and means the same thing as "hakuna matata" from the Lion King. I've been in this Pura Vida mode where things that seem really important to me before the trip don't anymore. These are the kind of things I would beat myself up about not doing everyday of my life, such as: exercising everyday for a hour, cleaning the house, and doing the dishes. I'm slowly getting back into the groove and grind of things, but I think Costa Rica gave me a perspective of what really matters in life. The people down there have a lot less then we do but seem more happy. Less is more. Costa Rica has made me feel blessed to grow up in the gospel with a loving family. Here are some of my favorite pictures from our trip.
