Costa Rica is my living dream. It’s a place where I start with a lot of stuff (material and emotional) and wind up with little and peaceful. After a lot of blood, sweat and tears (my husband's words), our dreams have grown and changed over time and expanded with the birth of our daughter. We have a love-filled home there as well as an investment property that we will sell when the time is right. Since we have a house in Costa Rica we have the luxury of feeling like were on vacation but with the ties of homeownership and comforts of community and long-time friendships. We swell with pride at our town’s growth and feel the pain when there is loss.
Although it is never easy getting to Costa Rica or leaving there it is always a place I feel passionate about.
