I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.


costa rica {day thirteen}

We are all getting a little anxious to head home. CJ has ‘hell’ week coming up, so he’s getting antsy with some business stuff and decisions. I’m getting antsy with the store stuff {even though I strongly believe it’s all good … I wish I were there}, and I’m going to be gone next week at a workshop {more on that later}. So I won’t be back at the store for another week. And, if you know me … that’s weighing on me.

Believe it or not, the girls are missing home too.

We’ve had an awesome time and are so blessed to have this experience … but … there’s no place like home! :)

The rooms here are made up of little villas sprinkled throughout the hills, so it’s a bit of a walk to get to the pools, beach, restaurants, etc. … so we take a golf cart ride to get to where we’re going. The night we arrived, we were shown to our awaiting chariot {golf cart}. There’s a seat that faces the back and then one that faces forward behind the driver’s seat {kind of a stretch golf cart}. So … the girls all run to sit on the backwards facing seat … and as luck would have it … the littlest one lost out on a seat! She was NOT a happy camper and refused to sit on Taylor’s lap.

Lesson learned … when the cart comes now, she literally books to the seat and jumps on. Fortunately, they’ve managed to squeeze all four of their bottoms onto the bench … but it’s too precious watching this littlest of the bunch fight her way to a seat.

Okay, so here she is actually waiting for the cart to come in the morning. Early bird gets the worm, right?


Last night we took a sunset catamaran cruise … it was beautiful and the girls loved it! Here’s Hunter on our way out to the catamaran.


Taylor and Piper settle in for the ride.


Wynter reflecting … don’t you wish you could know what goes through their minds?


Hunter and the “papa”razzi …


My gals at the end of the cruise on our way back to the beach.

After our cruise, the girls headed back to the room for a room-service dinner {their favorite}, while CJ and I went to dinner for date night … thank you Tay for watching the girls for us!  You can find more photos from the day here.

We’ve got another day here in paradise … it’s been a tremendous experience, it’s a beautiful country, the wildlife has been incredible … and the sun HOT! But as I said …

There’s no place like home!

    I love Hunter’s expressions! All your girls are adorable but there is something about Miss Hunter… Looks like you had a great vacation. Good luck with the store decisions when you return.
