One of the greatest things about being a writer is knowing that something you’ve written has touched or inspired another person. You never know when or how… but when it happens, it is magic! It reminds me that I need to keep writing because it matters… even if it touches just one person.
My good friend and Costa Rica Travel Squad leader, Tawanna Smith was touched by my account of one of our many adventures in the rain forests and volcanos of Costa Rica that she featured my story on her website, Moms Guide To Travel. I am blessed to call her friend and honored by the gesture.
You can read her feature here as well as read the story on My Single Serving Life.

Tomorrow, I embark on my very first real adventure. No work. No family. Just me (and a small travel squad) I’m going to Costa Rica and Nicaragua for 6 days. In addition to putting a much-needed stamp in my barren passport, this trip marks the beginning of a mental, spiritual, and physical journey that I’ve been planning in my head for nearly 4 years… To have my own version of “Eat Pray Love” while being a minivan-driving-single-mom-on-a-budget. Thanks to Tawana Smith of Moms Guide to Travel, I’m finally on my way to making what I thought would always be a dream written in my journal a reality. In approximately 24 hours, I will be blissfully submerged in la “Pura Vida!”
