Avoid seasonal sadness. Escape to balmy beaches with me!


I went to Costa Rica last month for a lot of reasons:

  • I wanted to avoid the anniversary of my break-up last year.

  • I wanted to avoid spending Valentine’s Day alone in my home.

  • I wanted to feel the sun on my face … in February!

  • And I wanted to do something I’ve always wanted to do: SURF!

This new challenge of skimming the waves on a board was really daunting. There were so many obstacles.

I mean, let’s face it. I’m not getting any younger. I have bad knees — I’ve had multiple surgeries. I’m a lousy swimmer and I’m almost legally blind which means I HAVE to wear contacts and you can imagine how well that goes with salt spray and splashes.

But this was something I just really wanted to do — or at least to say I had done! So I made one specific, realistic goal for myself — and that was to get my big booty upright on a board at least one time.

And guess what?

I did it! And on the very first try!

After that, everything was a bonus! A few more successes and I was addicted. I mean, you aren’t going to see me on Hawaii 5-0 or in the next surfing competition, but by the end of the two weeks, the real surfers were inviting me to join them in catching green water waves in the deep. I was stoked!

Not only was the surfing amazing, but the weather, the people, the jungle, the monkeys, the sloths, the fun! I left thinking I want to go back there EVERY winter.

So, you know me! I love to bring all my friends wherever I go and I thought of you. Would you be interested in joining me next winter for some sun and fun in Costa Rica?

If you’re interested, I mean, really interested — like yeah, girl, name the dates and times and I’m ready to slap down some cash, then show it by taking this little quiz. I’ve named a few other sunny spots that would be fun winter destinations and I just want some feedback from those of you who are ready to fly south to avoid the post-Christmas doldrums.

If you’d like to see some of my surfing pics and videos, including a wipe-out, check it out!
