Now entering level 7 🎮

July 03, 2020


Just like that, we're in July.

Halfway through 2020.

On level 7 of this 2020 video game.

And even though the past couple of months have been *crazy*, what a beautiful opportunity we've been presented with to learn, listen, grow, and not only be better for ourselves, but also for one another. 

Because we're "the glass is half full" kinda people.

One foot in front of the other, putting the work in every day people. 

So whether or not you celebrate an independence days this weekend or this July (United States, Canada, Algeria, Argentina, Bahamas, Belarus, Belgium, Colombia, Liberia, Malawi, Maldives, Netherlands, Peru, Slovakia, Venezuela), how about we collectively take a moment to celebrate life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for each and every one us, no matter our nationality?

Because we're better together. 

Have a beautiful weekend my friend. 💫

P.S. ... 
The bad news: Returning to Tropical Pura Vidadise is gonna have to wait another month because Costa Rica’s borders are closed until at least August 1st…and maybe even longer for those of us in the US. 🙈⠀

The good news: I’m seriously considering moving to Vancouver in British Columbia until I can get back to CR so I can get lost in my Pura Vidadise daydreams in this gorgeous bedroom designed by @sincerelylindsaydesignco(and yes, you do spy "Via Paradise"!). Wanna come with me? I promise that Gidget and I are very good snugglers!!!!

With the world in constant state of flux right now, it definitely is hard to keep up. I know I for sure miss the days of easy travel and everyday life sans mask!
