the beach: a perfect ending

Our Costa Rican adventure was filled with all kinds of interesting places and things. First exploring forest around the volcano, a river filled with creatures, then the cloudforest from below and ziplining above, and finally, the Pacific coast, on a quiet beach. Perfect.

On this trip, I tried not to be too obsessed with photos. I deliberately didn't take my camera with me to every single outing (thus there are no pictures of my first tapas meal, which was interesting and tasty, especially the desserts! [yes, plural]). I brought one of the cameras on the zipline adventure, and took a few pictures and videos, but mostly focused on enjoying the experience as I experienced it. This means that I don't have tons of photos that I'm really proud of, but that I had a good time.

That said, there was one detail that kept catching my eye for repeated photographs...

An engagement ring!! The BF proposed on our first night, so we got to enjoy it ourselves for a week before telling family, friends, and of course, the internet. :) We are happy and excited for the next step of our relationship. It has been four years now, so we're definitely ready. :)

Oh, yay, yay, yay, so exciting!! I'm very happy for you. The pic of your hand with the tropical vegetation in the background is perfect. :-)

Congratulations.

Remember the first time we met? Of course not! You and BF were consuming 97% of each other's attention!

It's great that it's only gotten better...
