Hmmm, tax day…wanting to escape from my thoughts of taxes, bills & work for a few minutes, I decided to put my blog together about things to do this weekend in St Petersburg, Florida.  As I searched the Internet, I strayed away from my quest (as usual-they are so many interesting things to read out there) & I found this article in the St Petersburg Times. It fit in beautifully with my last few blogs about living abroad. As I read about this couple from Tampa who moved to Costa Rica & looked at the pictures, I began thinking about my own fantastic visit trip there almost 2 years ago. Then, of course, I had to go look my photos of Costa Rica, which lead to photos of Mexico & St Pete Beach. Suddenly, life was good again.

SO now I feel much better continuing my busy day with returning phone calls, answering emails, meeting with clients, taking photos of a new listing, making appointments to show homes and helping my youngest daughter get ready for her prom tonight. I still see Costa Rica, the Mexican Yucatan Peninsula, & St Pete Beach in my head though. But please don’t tell anyone why I’m smiling. They think I smiling because of them.  And yes, later I will get my blog out about things to do in the St Pete area.

The following article & photos are from today’s St Petersburg Times.

Forging ahead on a dream

Chuck Knight had 21 employees and logged 60-hour weeks, but he didn’t want to wait until someday. Let’s move to Costa Rica now, he told Debbie, while we can still enjoy it.

****See dreams really DO come true! Now back to work for me.
