Hey hey!! I’m back and it’s time to catch up a bit.
First things, first. I am so happy to report that I’m officially divorced and single for the first time since I was 23. This is a very good thing. Also, it means that I still have to time get married in 2021! Just kidding. Not getting married any time soon.
I’m also celebrating my sister’s 40th birthday!!! For her birthday, I took her to Costa Rica for a surf camp! It’s the same one I did when I turned 40! I can’t figure out how link to a post on here, but you can search on the blog website for those old posts (I’d use “surfing” or “Costa Rica”). Anyway, Em and I were so excited to head out on Friday night.
It took us quite a few flights to get here, but it was worth it. Em decided the best course of action was to drink her way through the layovers!
We made it to Costa Rica on time yesterday and it has already been so much fun. The place where we’re staying is so, so beautiful.
We are part of a surfing retreat called Surf Bikini Retreat where we surf about 3.5 hours a day, do yoga 3 times, get massages, and also have some free time. The food is incredible and it’s also all women, which I just love. The owner recently finished building this house and it’s so perfect. There are seven surfers in this retreat and it seems like such an awesome group. The youngest is 29 and the oldest is 69! Most of us are in our 40s, though, I think.
Here are a bunch of photos from this morning including breakfast, one of the house cats, the beach, and Emily and me after our first surf lessons! We survived!!!
We’re now chilling outside, about to have lunch, and then we rest until we head back to the beach for another round of surfing. This place is absolutely magical.
