I gotta be me! - Our Life in Costa Rica

Today's post comes from my Changing Direction (fashion/lifestyle) blog and is all about my current clothing dilemma.

I have included a short excerpt below. 
If you would like to read the entire post I have also provided the link 

Things are a changin!


one of the things that has not changed, is my love for fashion and design. 

My next project...

my clothes

Since we decided not to bring a lot of clothing, I downsized my wardrobe and then selected the clothing I thought would be most appropriate for our new lifestyle and a very different climate (mostly based on what I had read or heard from other expats).

Since we have now been here almost 5 months, I have learned quite a bit about how I want to dress and it turns out that I brought many of the wrong items.

So...What to do???

And the beat goes on! - Our Life in Costa Rica

On Saturday we took a hop over to another ridge, San Isidro to participate in a community drum circle @ the yoga center. 

First we stopped and had lunch with a friend who had invited us over and then on to the drum circle. They had a pretty good turnout and we had a lot of fun. I am thinking of joining the group. 

October 8 - Saturday 

You are invited to experience our community drum circle! No experience is necessary. Our purpose is to make music, play, have fun, and connect
* Drums & percussion instruments are welcome, but if you don’t have any…we are happy to share. 

Since this was the West African Drum Circle, I took the opportunity to wear my authentic batik dress from Guinea Bissau, West Africa. Who knew I would have a chance to wear it to an event in Costa Rica! 

I bought a tambourine and some shakers and Lavanson brought his Native American flutes and played along 

Location: Ser La Luz Yoga Holistic Retreat Center, San Francisco de San Isidro, Grecia 

Time: 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

A truly beautiful and peaceful place

Celebrating Success

Have you looked at my sidebar lately? 
If you follow me on my blog site you may have noticed the Facebook "widget" on the right hand side.  
If not and this is the 1st time you've seen it
is a very BIG milestone for me.

 I started this blog in July 2014. At that time the only reader was me! So I am happy to report that in 
2 yrs I have gathered a Facebook following of over 500 people.

I think that warrants celebration!!

The World I Want to Live In - White House Student Film Festival

We have some very talented young people growing up in a world where the future is questionable.

Will we live in peace? 

This beautiful and thoughtful short film was shared by my brother, Russell, who is Director of Institutional Advancement at Salesian College Preparatory.

The film was directed by Jason Cordis, a 17 year old student at Salesian High School in Richmond, CA for the White House Student Film Festival.

Great job Jason!!! Congrats. (I also think Jason is in the finals)

Let's support our youth!
Please watch. Thank you
