“This trip was amazing.  As a mom, I’ve spent the last decade devoting myself to making sure my kids are well and happy.  And everything else came first, kids, spouse, work, church, friends… with no time for me….”

Laura, Athena, and Amanda laughing it up on the beaches of Costa Rica!

…I went on this trip because as my youngest was becoming a teen and pulling away, I realized that eventually he would grow up and move out, and I wasn’t sure who I would be left with.  Who am I if I’m not a mom? Am I just my job?  How boring is that! I went on this trip with the hope of self-discovery, and I realized, I’m much more than “just a mom”.  I’m a friend, and a person who loves travel and life and can make friends easily.  Going away with these 19 women will forever be a turning point for me.  It’s improved my love life with my spouse, helping me realize that we need to take care of each other as people, and not just as parents.  I really found my younger self on this trip, reminding me that life is full of wonder and fun, and I need to take better care of myself so I can continue to have years of passionate experience of all life has to offer.  We all need tribes of women in our lives… so very desperately.  I’m very thankful of my experience in Costa Rice and it makes me even more determined and thankful of my tribe of women I’m building back home."
