Backpacking Costa Rica | Personal Post | So long, America!

February 4, 2016

A couple of months ago, Caleb’s brother James told us he was wanting to take a trip over the winter because he would have a couple of weeks off of work due to a promotion + moving south to Georgia, with some downtime before starting his new job! Knowing the winter is our slow season, he asked if we wanted to join him. It didn’t take much convincing, especially since James loves traveling + was willing to plan the whole trip for us! Ha! We decided on Costa Rica + have spent the past several weeks sending texts, emails, + dreaming up a BACKPACKING trip through this gorgeous country!!

It seems like every time we tell people we’re going to Costa Rica, they’ve either been there + LOVED it, or know someone who has been there + loved it, so to say we’re excited would be a major understatement! CR is known for it’s natural beauty + landscapes, including world-renowned beaches, an active volcano, lush cloud forests, incredible food, + a friendly culture. They live “La Pura Vida!” as they say in Costa Rica, which means the pure life : ) 

After a crazy-busy wedding season + a tough couple of months personally dealing with + learning about anxiety in my own life, we are really looking forward to this time away to TRULY rest + unplug. NO work. Just enjoying the warmth + scenery of Costa Rica, + the company of two guys that are so special to me!! Of course, there is a part of me that has worries + anxious thoughts immediately thinking about not responding to my email for 10 days, but that is all part of this personal journey + learning experience for me, trusting God + trusting that this business we’ve worked so hard to build will be … just fine. : )

There will be just one or two pre-planned posts over the next 10 days, however, I DEFINITELY plan to update our travels + experiences on Instagram because I LOVE this platform + am excited to document what’s happening while we’re there! So if you aren’t already, be sure to follow us at @maisonmeredith : )  We leave TOMORROW, so … so long, America!! See you soon!
