Pura Vida

What better way to combat the winter blues during the first snowstorm of the season than by looking back to warmer and sunnier times when winter and work were thousands of miles away and your only concern was whether to apply SPF 45 or 70.

Time spent lying on the beach

watching the sun move across the sky, palm trees silhouetted above my head,

enjoying plenty of good laughs with good friends.

Perhaps with just a dash of adventure,

and the thrill of learning a new skill (or attempting to learn a skill and falling off the surfboard a whole lot in the process).

And of course, there were those moments of absolute hilarity, the memory of which will bring smiles for years to come.

Frankly, as I sit here at my computer with the snow falling outside and my tan fading faster than fifteen minutes of fame, it all seems a little like a dream.
