Last week, Chad and I went to Costa Rica!
Remember how I asked you guys for vacation ideas? Well, I was listening. About a week after getting so many amazing suggestions from y’all, I cancelled the trip that I’d planned (to the same spot in Mexico we’d gone to in October) and decided we were heading someplace new.
And it was such an awesome trip. Costa Rica has been on our list of places we’d like to visit since around our honeymoon, but somehow we never made it there, even though it’s less than three hours from Houston. But as I was thinking about where we liked to go, a few of you chimed in about it, and I decided that this was our chance.
One thing I really love about Houston is that it’s amazingly easy to travel from here as a home base. In about three hours, I can be in Manhattan, Los Angeles, or sitting on a beach in Mexico. It’s sort of a pipe dream because spending even a few days away from Bear is hard, but I also try to remind myself that someday soon, he can come with us. He’s too little to appreciate it now, but one of my biggest dreams for him is to have him experience different cultures around the world, and I can’t wait to get started.
I have a few more pictures (all from my iPhone, which is a story of its own) that I’ll share later this week, but for now let me say: Happy Monday!
