Wow! I mean have you ever wanted a year to just end? Were you ever more looking forward to New Year’s Day than 2021? It seems it couldn’t come fast enough; and then just like that; it was over. It was almost surreal. Yet for as challenging and difficult as 2020 was, for so many people around the world, and especially here in our own backyard of Guanacaste Costa Rica, in many ways, it will turn out to be a legitimate blessing in disguise. It made us realize how important our family, faith and community are, as they were the ones that had our back, covered our ass, and helped pull us through: true friends never leave you out to dry.
