A recap of 2014

2014 has been an awesome year and our first FULL year in Costa Rica! Thank you ALL for being a part of my life… and I really mean this. Whether you’re a childhood friend, a long time friend, or someone new in my life – I value all of you, and truly love that you are part of my life – online or in person!

Here’s a short little video summing up my year:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! Pura vida! — Jen

I quit my job in my early 40’s, sold everything and retired early to live a simple life in Costa Rica!

Check out my book: "Costa Rica Chica" - the book.

  2. Hey, you creative person! Even a VIDEO with your baking creations interspersed with friends and arm candy inspires me! Banana bread and chocolaty Christmas cookies coming up…
    I wish we could zip back and forth between CA and Grecia to be with you and Greg, but thank you for sharing your joy with us.
    Pura Vida and love,

  4. Your 2014 video gave me ducky-bumps, Jen. Very emotional looking back at all your photos and posts from the year (not to mention the music you chose!). What a wonderful time for you and Greg, living la pura vida. Have a wonderful holiday and a blessed new year!

  5. Jen, you are a very beautiful, talented Chica. Yes, you are truly amazing, so creative. I loved the video and the music as well.

  7. Jen, I just finished your book and really enjoyed it so much! You and Greg have truly found your niche in life, and it’s obvious that Costa Rica is very, very good for you. Pura Vida! I hope you got to like the Facebook page for our farm: Finca Dos Rios. We started going to Costa Rica in 1998, and it resulted in our buying the farm and building a house there. We love spending time there and taking family and friends. We especially love riding our horses there. We have had many wonderful adventures in Costa Rica, and it’s a big part of our lives. Next time you are in Dallas, we would love to have you come to our home and share a meal, and we can tell you more of our story and hear more of yours. Happy New Year and hope 2015 will be even better!

    • Hi Anne! I found your Finca Dos Rios page! Thank you so much on the comments on my book, that’s really great to hear. Would love to get together with you sometime (Dallas or Costa Rica!) – thank you so much. 🙂

  8. Jen, kudos to you for following your dreams! Costa Rica is a place we have visited three times and we love the country and the people who live there. You actually DID what so many just dream of doing. Love your blog and LOVED your book which I have read twice. Please keep writing so we can enjoy another book!

    • Hello Cheryl! Wow, nice to hear from you and your lovely comments. TWICE! That makes up for the one bad review I got the other day. Thank you so much!! 🙂 Pura vida!
