^^^last summer, we spent a few weeks traveling through costa rica. our first stop? monteverde cloud forest^^^

^^^jared, in monteverde at night^^^

^^^the two of us signed up for forest night hike- looking for giant spiders, lime green poisonous snakes, rare monkeys, and tree cutting ants. and we found them...especially the giant spiders. lots of giant spiders.^^^  

^^^getting drenched to the bone...because, well, it rains a lot in costa rica^^^

^^^spotting an amazing blue questzal in the forest^^^

^^^stop two? costa rica's gold coast.... and of course the famous playa tamarindo^^^

^^^our beach-shack hotel in playa tamarindo^^^

^^^pura vida^^^

^^^after playa tamarindo, we cruised up the coast to brasilito - one of our favorite places^^^

^^^i loved this little church we passed on the road to arenal. isn't everyday life just beautiful?^^^

^^^our final destination- la fortuna. and here's jared below the town's active volcano- arenal. and yes, we did see lava flowing down the hillside.^^^

^^^swimming in arenal's natural hot springs^^^

This time last year... we were hiking through a cloud forest, sleeping with geckos, swimming in a warm ocean, eating at "sodas" (ma and pa Tican restaurants), and bathing in volcanic hot springs. This year, we're missing Costa Rica and the good life... but I am grateful for all of the amazing memories we have together- and how lucky we are to have had these adventures. Love ya lots.
