The adjustment to living in Chicago was rough at first. Our future plans pushed me through those difficult couple of months. The hard work Graham and I have both put in over the past six months to save money means that we can have another epic adventure soon: We're going to Costa Rica in January!
My heart might burst out of my chest right now. I've wanted to go to Costa Rica for years and it's happening at last! I can finally get some use out of my passport. Now we just need to figure out where exactly to go in the country. We love outdoor activities: snorkeling, ziplining, hiking, kayaking, you name it. I daydream about relaxing on a beach, too. Do we want to see the Caribbean or the Pacific side?
I advocate living in the moment as much as possible, but I just can't help wanting time to move a little bit faster when I have a trip coming up.
