Costa Rica- Pura Vida!

I am home! Sorry for the delay! My boyfriend left this morning for 3 weeks for a job in Cape Cod! So I am bummed, but happy for him bc its a good opportunity. The longest we have been apart is a week. But I am home with Chloe dog! Costa Rica was beautiful! I loved finding sea shells every morning, cafe con leche, sunsets, dogs that all reminded me of Chloe, zip line through the rain forest, waterfalls, banana smoothies, avacado and toast, seeing tucans, the ocean, finding wild horses on our walk, and being with my family all week. Theres so much more too. I have way to many photos, my computer got mad at me! I will share more soon!

All photos taken by me! Hope your having a great week!! :)

My retro suitcase & Chloe face! ♥

Good bye friends! I am off to Costa Rica for a week! I am so excited. I will be home on Aug. 22nd. A week off work enjoying the sunshine and adventures every day! The only bummer is I have to leave Chloe and my boyfriend behind! But at least he will be watching Chloe. I hate being away from them! But I am looking forward to spending time with my family! I will take lots of photos! I got a new camera! Which took these photos. :)
I found my retro suitcase on Etsy and fell in love! I want to travel to all the places on it and more! It came with me when I went to the Bahamas! I found it in Red Comb Vintage's shop! Check it out for lots more good finds!
I will visit your blogs when I return! Happy weekend and week to all of you!!! ♥
p.s. Please vote for Chloe everyday while I am gone! She will be your best friend! ♥

Woodstock Love

I heard this story on the radio and had to know more! The couple from the Woodstock album is still together, 40 years later, proving that true love really lasts!
"Of all the images snapped during the original Woodstock weekend, one stands above all: a young couple huddled together in a blanket, standing alone in a sea of people lying on wet ground. It's an enduring image of love, care and protection that earned iconic status through its placement on the cover of the original "Woodstock" album in 1970, as well as on the movie poster. Forty years later, the couple in the photo - Nick and Bobbi Ercoline, both 60 - remain together. They married two summers after the fabled weekend, and they still live less than an hour's drive from the original concert site of Bethel, N.Y., and within spitting distance of where they both grew up."
Isn't that sweet! Hope your having a great week!
