Spice up your Special Day with Modern and Meaningful Invites

There might be a lot of planning that goes into a wedding, but the actual day flies by! At least, it did for me. It’s been awhile¬†since I said “I do” but it’s still one heck of a whirlwind.

I guess Costa Rica is that place for me because less than a year after spending all of August exploring this magical country, I was back – this time, to the Osa Peninsula. Unlike my first trip where I mostly hotel hopped around the country, I decided to let Costa Rican Vacations take the stress of logistics planning off me.
