I think the reason I have been remiss in posting regularly is that I feel like my blog has no focus. I realize it doesn't necessarily need a focus, but after my friend Krista revamped her blog, complete with a theme including cute drawings, I feel like my blog is just boring. I've been racking my brain for ideas, but to no avail. I guess until I have some sort of epiphany, the boring blog will remain. I did purchase a Macbook a few weeks ago and have been playing around with iWebs, so perhaps while I'm working on that project, which means possibly a new Web site (and another new blog address). However, if the past few weeks are any indication, I may not find time to finish the new site/blog until summer is over.

And, as the previous sentence attests, I have been quite busy lately and the summer outlook shows more of the same. This weekend I am hosting a get-together at my new place for some girlfriends. I'm looking forward to spending time with my friends, but am a bit stressed about the prep (I'm providing apps, drinks, etc.). Next week, I'm headed to Wyoming for work and then to South Dakota to see my brother, who is on leave from deployment in Iraq, and to attend a friend's wedding. I can't believe the 4th of July is right around the corner and on its heels is electricity camp, Mile-High Music Festival and the Big Gig, all happening in July.

Yesterday I hit the two-year mark in Colorado, and although I can't believe how quickly the time has gone, I am so happy here and really can't imagine myself anywhere else.

By the way, you can check out Krista's blog, Motherhood Illustrated, HERE.

Costa Rica. Ah, where to begin? It was a truly amazing trip -- relaxing, spiritual and just all-around good for the soul (and body). While there, I spent a great deal of time journaling and taking a profound look at who I am and where I want to be and really just getting to know me. I also met some amazing people whom I hope to see again (Pura Vide reunion at Maya Tulum!). Looking back, I think the true benefit of the trip was that I realized I have an amazing life and I should take more time being grateful for all the things that encompass my life instead of taking it all for granted. Pura Vida!
