Its almost that time again!!

.....for garage sales!!!
It has been 3 years since I have been here for the Fyre Lake/Sherrard garage sales and this year, they are on the same day and I am participating!!
I have gone through (almost) all of my things and have gotten rid of so much, although I would love to get rid of much more. It feels so good to simplify your life, as Mr. Thoreau has always given us the advice to do so,...it really does make you feel better.
I am so motivated now by my beautiful sister Abigail to become more organized, it just melts away the stress having things in order. I am already planning on how I am going to live life when I arrive in Costa Rica. This time here being home is just more time to meditate on my life, and the way I need to live it.
I have been really eating so much better, and don't feel my body craving so much of the 'bad stuff', junk food, pop, foods with lots of grease. I can't wait to have access to an open market to buy all the fresh fruits and veggies!
The thing with being here where Im at now (in Illinois) is that the grocery stores are a 10-15 minute car ride away. You never want to buy so much produce, because in a matter of days they can go bad, or the other way around, you only buy so much , and use it up right away.
No cars- this is another thing I can't wait for. Of course in San Jose, (the capital city of Costa Rica) will have cars/traffic but we will be close enough to everything that we can walk or even ride a bike everywhere (I LOVE THIS!!!)
My emotions are going crazy for how excited/stoked I am for this journey, and I'm loving looking back and realizing that I am always happy and excited for things that have happened/are going on/will happen in my life. It keeps me so positive.
I hope the weather your way is just as beautiful in its own way as it is here, today was so warm and even though it was a bit windy, the sun shines on you and you can just feel the warmth!! mmm!!!
