Thursday morning...

"All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go..." I'm sure you've heard this song before, but what about this lovely version? I love it...

Well, today this is me, leaving on a Jet Plane to the Big White (literally in some areas of the East Coast States) North, unfortunately I am leaving my hubby behind for a few days until I come back to his arms (but unlike the lyrics of the song, I will leave and come back wearing my wedding ring) just in time for Valentines Day.

I'm really only going as far as Miami (exactly 456miles according to my boarding pass), so it's not going to be white, but it's still North of us... hopefully the cold is not going to be too bad. But, this trip is not "all fun and games", it's an official business trip to go work at the Miami Boat Show 2010 and sell lots and lots of art, wish me luck!

So, I am going to try my best to keep my blog rolling the next few day, but no promises. If I can't make it, I  apologize in advance and promise more great posts to come... Have a great day!!!

New President

I am so happy to share the news that my home country Costa Rica has a new elected president as of Sunday Feb 7th, 2010.

But that also for the first time in the history of my country, it is a woman who now gets to sit on the presidential chair. Laura Chinchilla of PLN (Partido Liberacion Nacional) won with almost a 47% of the total votes. 

I am very happy and proud to know that the political party that my family has always followed is giving our country this great accomplishment in the 21st century, but mostly I am proud to know that Costa Rica is ready for a different mind set by choosing to be governed and be taken cared of by a woman president.

I guess it is true what I've read lately in some articles about Costa Rica being a happy country, the past election proves one more time that we do not need military and violence to be able to practice democracy to the fullest, and although we have had tough times with corrupted governments/presidents (like many other countries of the world), we are still proud to go out on the streets, defend out right to choose our government and to always want to best for our people and our country.

I hope God gives the strength and the knowledge to our new President Chinchilla, to always put our country first, to honestly care for her roots, her culture and our people. May this be the beginning of many wonderful opportunities for my country and the continuation of many projects and laws that would help the continued growth of our economy, improvement of social security, continuing the right approach towards sustainable ecology and peace...

Viva Costa Rica! (Long live Costa Rica!).

Family Sunday @ Barkers

Yesterday we took the doggies for a long walk on the beach at Barkers Park, it was a beautiful day full of sun, sand, sea and kite boarders. Here's the proof of what I'm writing is true...

at the beginning of the walk

Ditto and the kite boarders

When we finally got back to the car, we were putting the dogs under a tree and that's when I noticed a wood pecker right in front of me, so I run to get the camera a besides some awesome shots I also shoot and awesome video that I uploaded on when I got home.

To everybody out there in the northern hemisphere reading my blog, for those that are covered in snow or with very low temperatures, I hope you get a little warmth through the monitor of the computer just by looking at my pictures... Have a nice week!
