Nuestra Casa – Costa Rica

Admire – and perhaps envy – our guest writer Patrick Goodness’ life at home in Costa Rica If I close my eyes tight enough and strain the limits of my memory, I can almost remember the tiny details of my life before I moved our little family to a new future in Costa Rica. It’s been ten years since we left our cozy neighborhood in Antioch, Illinois, a small-town Chicago suburb. With two small children in tow, we decided that...

Contemplating Costa Rica

The more we think back to what we did in Costa Rica, the more I think we enjoyed it.
