One more dance around the sun! 🌞💫

Growing older is an interesting thing. When I was 12, I remember thinking that my 25 year old head sailing camp coach was sooooooo much older than me. 😂 But then when I hit 30, age started to become a number to me rather than this defining number. Maybe it was because I was in semi-denial that I had turned 30 and was no longer in my 20s 😝... . 

Yes, that was a part of it, but really it was because I started to view my age from the viewpoint of my life experiences, and how well + authentic I was living my life defined by no one else's plans or opinions but my own. And now that I'm a couple of years into my 30s, I find myself forgetting my exact age and simply relishing all of those beautiful experiences that make up a year. How about you?

Like this past 33rd year of mine...a year that started with a super full moon, listening to Tom Petty and taking in Mother Nature’s magic. A year full of dreamy waves, breathtaking sunsets, new adventures, thousands upon the thousands of Gidget besitos, and personal growth. Thank you 33 for such a beautiful trip around the sun. ⠀

 

And as my new trip around the sun starts, I feel overwhelmed with gratitude for this beautiful life, and this powerful, healthy body I’ve been fortunate to experience it all in these past 33 years. For loving and supportive family + friends. For all of the experiences that have helped shape me — from the laughs, hugs, kisses, sweat, and triumphs to the tears, challenges, name-calling + bullying, injuries, failures, and heartache. For the people who have believed in me, and to those who haven’t. For the opportunity to learn, love, grow, be a better person than the day before, give more than I receive, and make sure I’m doing my part to keep this beautiful Earth magical. For the privilege to share with you every #FelizFriday and connect with you. For this one heck of a ride. ⠀

Let’s dance 34!💫 🎉 ⠀

 

P.S. How about this special sunset Mother Nature painted on my birthday this past Tuesday?!?! 😍🌅😍

What’s the weather like in Costa Rica you ask?

Well, that all depends on where in Costa Rica you are. In fact, Did you know that even though Costa Rica is the size of West Virginia or Denmark, it has 20 microclimates?
