Last weeks of winter

Lately, time seems to be passing very quickly. I find it hard to believe that I will home for Christmas in nearly 3 weeks. I'm trying to get in as much beach/surf time as I can before my flight on the 18th. I spent last weekend in Samara and the weekend before that in Tamarindo. I don't know what this weekend will bring, but I probably won't spend it in San Jose.

It really doesn't feel like Thanksgiving is tomorrow. Last week I realized that I really don't have many American friends here, but I still managed to find a small group of gringos to go out with tomorrow night. We have reservations at a restaurant in Escazu that serves a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. It will be nice to see friends that I haven't seen in a few weeks, and it's definitely better than sitting at home.

Well, I hope you all enjoy your long weekend! As for my family, I hope you don't miss my awesome stuffing too much. haha

Much love
Kristin

P.S- I've been reading more Paulo Coelho lately and thought I would share...

"When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny."

We did miss your stuffing. Well at least Hank did. How can you enjoy sand in your toes when you could be in Kansas with snow between them? Can't wait to see you. Dad
