  • Dollar Store Ring 3 months ago           After the dust settled and Da Ring was sitting happily on Lynn’s finger, she grabbed her phone and started punching in an address on WAZE. “Where are we going now? The mission has been accomplished.” She took a deep breath, grinned, and her eyes twinkled as she cried, “To the...
  • Da Ring to End All Rings! 3 months ago         Soooo, she upgraded. Again. My beautiful friend, Lynn, loves the jewelry — and she has gathered some mighty fine baubles over the years!

Love Carole Jeans CR Capers Blog, she is so candid and entertaining with the life in Atenas. (We are planning to go to Atenas in 2016 for a one month stay to see if we like it. If that works out then we would consider moving there permanently!) Carole Jean seems to be a really neat and fun lady and her escapades in CR make me want to move sooner!

I am loving Carole Jean's blogs whether they are about her colorful past in San Francisco or her current experiences in Costa Rica. Carole is so generous to share the small moments of her interesting life with us gringos in the States. I feel inspired every time I finish one of her stories.
