We just spent a week at Kalon Surf Camp in Costa Rica for our family vacation. It was such an exceptional place and an amazing vacation that I wanted to share the highlights with you. Kalon Surf Camp Resort is a small boutique luxury hotel that accommodates about ten guests per week. It’s located at the top of a mountain overlooking the Pacific in Dominical, located about a 2.5 hour drive south of San Jose airport on the Pacific coast. This was the view from my balcony in my room that took my breath away.
Kalon is all-inclusive, so fresh food is prepared for all meals and served from the central dining table that looks out to the infinity pool.
PURA VIDA:A Costa Rican phrase, meaning pure life, full of life, this is living!, going great, or real living. The phrase can be used both as a greeting or a farewell, as an answer expressing that things are going well, or as a way of giving thanks.

The Captain and I eloped seventeen years ago. We were married at Treasure Island Casino (only fitting for a Captain by trade) and opted for the $350.00 marriage package special which included a VHS tape of the ceremony and a bouquet of flowers for me. We had already bought our first house with all of […]
2014 was the year I got back into shape by working out regularly. I wrote about that year-long process in my Younger This Year series. Building on that progress I had to concede that my daily workouts alone did not constitute cohesive self-care. In 2015, I’ll be sharing my efforts to try to be a better caregiver to myself […]
New music, new month. Audible inspiration for the month of lions and lambs. Hang in there New England, just a few more weeks until daylight savings sunshine and Spring arrive. Even better, plan your escape to South Florida this month – if you can find an airline ticket left. Spotify users follow this playlist here. Or, you can […]
My friend Michelle finds prickly cactus pears at her farmer’s market, peels them, and infuses them in white tequila for a week. She uses the prickly-pear-infused tequila to make these kick-ass margaritas, which she served to our book club last year while playing Gerry Rafferty radio on Pandora and just like that my book club […]
