Our first year

Today marks a milestone for our family: it was a year ago that we left Ohio for more tropical spaces. It's almost hard to believe an entire year has passed since that day.

To celebrate, we went to Pane e Vino—a favorite Italian place and the first restaurant we ate at as a family here in Costa Rica. As we devoured our pizza, we reminisced about our first day here: how excited, nervous, happy, exhausted, and hungry we were in those first hours. (And perhaps even just a bit overwhelmed with it all!)

Dan and I have also been talking about how much pressure we feel to keep traveling now that our time here is getting shorter. We've already done and seen so much—much more than appears in my blog—but there is plenty left that we want to do and see. We have learned a lot about ourselves and the world during these first twelve months. I look forward to seeing what the coming year has in store for our family.

I feel the same about living here in FL. Our time will be ending here in either the summer 2009 or summer 2010 and I feel the need to see and experience it all while we live here. While it is not the same as living Costa Rica I can relate a bit.

Id love to see more pics of those fabulous mountains (hint hint)

Sometimes it seems like it was forever ago that we were saying goodbye in the parking lot of O'Charley's (or wherever it was) and sometimes it seems like last week. Thanks for keeping the blog alive so I can still feel connected to my girl!
