Let's give them the world.

Newborn-baby

I have been remiss to share my home birth story!  I can easily blame my tardiness on mommy-brain, a true and actual thing.  I’ve been in a fog lately–totally forgetting appointments, where I left the diaper bag, and the names of my children.  Speaking of, I’d like to share with you the name of my newest munchkin.  Everything about our birth story is in the video below! Thank you for watching and sharing this amazing adventure with us! These kids of…

Pregnant in Costa Rica

Surprise!  We’re having a baby in Costa Rica!  I am currently about 5.5 months along, and our little one is due in May.  We arrived about a week ago, with our first appointment with an obstetrician at the CIMA hospital arranged beforehand.  Yesterday, we were finally able to have our anatomy scan.

Moving our family to Costa Rica.

Well, we’re at it again.  And by “it,” I mean relocating to another country.  The winters of Vermont (where we spent most of 2016) are pretty harsh, and for a few reasons, we thought it best to head back to sunny, beautiful Costa Rica for another chapter.  We’ve rented a home in Atenas for the next six months, and have no specific plan afterwards. I’ve been hit with the same rush of intense happiness that Costa Rica always welcomes me with…

In the 3+ years that we have been wandering, I have been the sole voice of Travel Mother. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, my husband Chris has quietly kept the site going with all his magical computer skills. As a new method of capturing our wild life, we’ve recently started something fun to allow you all to get to know our whole family much better. We’ve jumped into the vlogging waters of Youtube! We have decided to unfold our journey through the new…

Bridge in San Gerardo de Dota, Costa Rica

I didn’t know how we would feel after spending two weeks in Costa Rica this May.  Life took a surprising turn once our grand European adventure and 2015 came to a close.  We had assumed we would move back to the land of La Pura Vida, and even purchased one-way tickets to get our freezing faces back into the sunshine.  But, somehow a curiosity for New England redirected our path.  We purchased a fixer-upper in Vermont, a place we had little–well, actually zero–experience…
