Don't Blame Me

ola de Costa Rica! We've arrived and have adjusted to life in Central America quite well. Many thanks to the blog commentors who let me know Costa Rica was in CENTRAL!! America, and not South America as I had mentioned in a previous post. Yo, it ain't my fault I don't know much about geography...blame my mom...I was home schooled!! ;)

We're off to shoot the wedding today and experience Pura Vida in many new ways...I can't wait to blog about this amazing couple...I just love them! We flew into San Jose early yesterday and had to take a small plane to Tamarindo, which always scares the living daylights out of me, so here's a picture of me giving JD a last-minute kiss in case anything happened and we fell from the sky!
