Why is January 21st not the best day for sunsets + waves?

January 18, 2019

Guess what?!?! Not only is Monday Martin Luther King Day, it's also my birthday! 🎉🎉🎉

Now, I'm not one for a big birthday celebration and gifts, but rather a day of dreamy waves 🌊 and a magical sunset 🌅. Big surprise there, huh?! 

BUT in my six years in Costa Rica during my birthday, January 21st is not the best day on the calendar for beautiful waves or dramatic sunsets. 🙈

Why? 

During dry season in Costa Rica, it’s blue skies and sunny days every single day — weeks will go by without a cloud in the sky!! And no clouds = no sunset cloud magic. And for some reason, the north west swells from the winter storms in Alaska like to arrive right after my birthday! Duoh!!! (Well, except for last year...I had a double surf session of birthday waves!)

So if you believe in the woo-woo magic of the universe like I do, will you send some good vibrations out there for waves and a pretty sunset for my birthday on Monday? I totally believe that it can happen, especially because this past week some pretty clouds floated in over the ocean and set the stage for this palm tree sunset magic below. Yep, you better believe that I did a sunset happy dance at the beach!

Pura Vida,

P.S. If you missed last week's #FelizFriday email, did you know I was interviewed on the Salted Spirit Podcast?! I chat about about finding my niche, the power of a positive mindset, keeping my ‘banks,’ balanced,  and how learning the power of money at a young age (thanks mom and dad!) has translated into financial success as an adult.

I made a mistake.

Yep, I by accident sent the wrong custom framed print to a customer. Kelly ordered the horizontal framed print of Arapahoe Glow, and I sent her the vertical framed print of this gorgeous Alpen sunset glow in the Colorado Rockies. 🤦🏼‍♀️

I totally understand the dilemma of trying to pick your favorite print (or two...or ten...😍🌅🏝) at The Sunset Shop to bring home with ya...because I have the same dilemma too!

Earlier this week, one of my Instagram friends tagged me in a post, prompting me to share eight things about me on IG...and I thought what better way for you and I to get to know each other better this #FelizFriday than for me to share these eight things with you too!
