I picked up our guests in Santa Maria this morning at 11 am. This couple was here back in August. Their daughter had bought her mother one-night stay in our guesthouse a Mother's Day gift. They liked it so much she decided she wanted to spend her 60th birthday here. And today is the day. How time has flown by. Feels like they were just here. Velia who speaks a little English and her husband, Francisco, speaks only Spanish. They live in San Jose where there aren't a lot of green spaces so they love to walk around the property admiring the tall trees and the flowers and breathe in the clean air. They are a lovely couple. And it's such a nice feeling to get repeat business. We caught some fish and I made a tasty dinner as well as served a carrot cake with six candles. Kevin and I lit the candles and sang Happy Birthday. She seems pleased. That's all that matters.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
