It all started (or ended, depending on how you look at it) in 2012. It was a big year of ups and downs: getting my dream job, only to realize it was a nightmare and quit three months later (I’ve never been a quitter), travelling to Australia with my best friend then coming home on a separate plane because we couldn’t even speak to each other (seriously, I’d never fought with a friend before, let alone my best), and finally separating from my partner of seven years (the final straw and a test of everything I had). They say bad things come in threes…

After all this I found myself alone at home in December, working crazy freelancing hours, freezing in the darkest days of winter. The year was almost over and I’d had enough. I called my sister and said ‘if I don’t get out of here I’ll die…let’s take a trip!’. We booked a flight to Costa Rica, for no particular reason other than it wasn’t Mexico (which was supposed to be dangerous at the time) and it wasn’t full of all-inclusive resorts. The day we left, December 21st, 2012, the world was supposed to end…and in a lot of ways it did. That trip marked the beginning of a new year, a new life, a new way of viewing the world for both of us. We left all that other stuff behind and went into 2013 with hope in our hearts and smiles lighting up our faces. It was the best year we’ve ever had and the beginning of a new chapter for both of us.

Here’s to going into 2014 with a pura vida state of mind…
