Where have I been?? Life in Costa Rica! Updates and news On Winston!

Hello crafty friends! Just wanted to post a quick update since I have been MIA!! We spent 16 days traveling through Costa Rica! It was an amazing trip, we spent several days white water rafting down the Pacuare river, traveled up to the Arenal Volcano then south to Manuel Antonio, back to Hermosa Beach and Joco and ended in San Jose. I will post a full update on our adventure over at my running blog soon, we were lucky enough to see the top of the volcano and run in an Ultra 10K trail race. It was the trip of a lifetime and it was hard to come home and go back to work!

 Hardest trail run of my life!

 Top of Arenal Volcano


It is one year since we almost lost Winston to Valley Fever. He suffered a heart attack and lung damage in addition to the infection. His last report showed recovery of some damaged tissue near his heart, and his lung capacity will never recover, sadly he will never be able to run with me again. His valley fever results also indicated his levels have risen. He is staying strong and we love him so much and continue to take the best care of him. We are hoping for better results at his next appointment.

The DoubleClick Skittles Shop is fully stocked with all your favorite colors! With an easier check out you can now pick and choose the ones you want!

Cross country season is fast approaching! I hope to have a much better handle on time management this season to be able to craft and keep up with everyone's blog!

Thanks for letting me share my updates! I will be playing catch up! 

Also I would love to hear about your thoughts and comments on me bringing back a Design Team and hosting challenges?
