I'm not going to lie....I have been obsessed with chai tea since coming to Colombia.⠀☕️ 🇨🇴 ✨⠀
And I love how all these jungle-y plants surround almost all cafes and restaurants so you feel like you're tucked away in your own little world. 🌿🐯🌿
But I didn't start this post to tell you about how much joy each little nook of a cafe gives me...⠀
No I'm coming here this Monday morning to tell you it's time to dream BIGGER. 🔮
Because it's Monday many of us wake up way too early to an alarm that makes us beg for even a few more minutes of rest, before having to get up and get on our way to a job....that to be frank....at this point we may hate.⠀
We spend a few stolen minutes here and there scrolling through Facebook or Instagram...dreaming of that laying on that white sandy beach or splashing into that turquoise water in that one travel pic. 😍🌊☀️
But for whatever reason we've told ourselves that we can't have that. We tell ourselves that dream is for other people, but not us because we have this job, in this place, and this responsibility, and this family, and the list goes on and on.⠀
But I'm here today to tell you, whatever you can imagine, whatever you can dream. You can have. I promise. 🙌🏻⠀
I give you permission to give up all your bullshit excuses and dream bigger today. To feel how incredible and powerful and capable you are. Release all the reasons why you can't have it and start seeing them as simply problems to solve. And you can solve them.⠀
My friend, you are powerful beyond belief. 💪🏻🙌🏻☺️❤️🙏🏻
A meaningful life is what you define it to be. Design your life around what makes life worth living for you.

Nothing beats a good adventure than road trip with a car to the mountains. 🏔 🚙
And it didn't felt like I was having a holiday. Waking up every early morning, sitting in the car 4 hours to get from one place to another, back to hotel late at night, tired from walking and sitting BUT it was one of the best experiences I ever had and now I'm more curious than ever to see nature places like this one☝🏻🌟

Dicen por ahí que Cada mañana nacemos de nuevo, lo que hacemos hoy es lo que más importa. Es tiempo de descubir las pequeñas cosas que nos hacen felices y aprovecharlas al máximo!
Hey friends, I want to share with you the next information.
Monteverde is a small place, but really nice, it is the perfect place to do ecotourism and adventure, but it is also a place to go to a bar and enjoy the night or just sit in the sustainable park to eat a delicious ice cream, and do not forget the Monteverde coffee.
There are many lodging options, with beautiful views, but that day I stayed at the hostel Cabinas Vista al Golfo, a pretty good place where they have different types of accommodation,staying there includes a rich breakfast.
I love hostels because it is the perfect place to meet people and that's how I found a beautiful girl.
Do you like hostels ? °
Amigos, quiero compartir les que Monteverde es un lugar pequeño, muy bonito, pero chiquito. Un lugar para hacer ecoturismo de día y noche, aventuras, pero es un lugar también para irse a un buen bar o disfrutar un rico helado en su parque autosustentable y no olvidar se de su rico café.
Hay muchos tipos de hospedaje, en esa ocasión me hospede el hostal Cabinas vista al golfo, un lugar pintoresco donde tiene varios tipos de alojamiento, desde cuartos compartidos a habitaciones privadas, cuenta con cocina y un pequeño restaurante que si te quedas con ellos el desayuno es gratuito.
Me encantan los hostales porque es el lugar perfecto para conocer gente, más si viajas solo, y ese día me disponía ya a descansar cuando en el baño compartido me encontré una bella chica americana y nos pusimos a platicar y nació una bonita amistad que terminó en una rica comida en un restaurante mexicano (creo que a los ticos, les gusta la comida mexicana, porque hay muchos ) una noche en un bar y un desayuno rico con ella y sus amigos, espero poder ver la pronto.
A ustedes les gusta los hostales ?

This season is hard. I think it's okay to admit that.
There are quite a few areas in this little world of mine that seem to just be a little floaty. I don’t have the answers I want. I’m confused. I find myself frustrated more often than not.
I would love to come on here and talk about just how I see the tangible hand of God doing big things, but I’m not going to, because sometimes I don’t see it. (And that’s okay)
I’m going to tell you that somehow in all of that, even though I don’t see it, I know that God is doing things.
I haven’t seen the end.
This season is no easier with that.
It’s still hard.
Surrender isn’t easy.
Trust certainly isn’t either.
I know that God is good.
But things are going to be hard and confusing sometimes, and I think it’s okay to admit.
I'm smart enough and mature enough in my faith to know that even when I don’t see it, or feel it, that God is working. That in my frustration I’m being pushed forward into another level of Glory, but also that I have to help that along a bit. As much as I would love to just sit in my emotions, I know that I have to work through them. That I have to choose to walk forward in all things grasping, clenching actually, to the truth that I know of God and His promises.
This is me this week. Making the decision to look at what is unseen and repenting for when I don’t, because so often I don’t and I walk around carrying weight I was never called to.
I started praying that God would bring new wine out of me a few months ago, so I’m not going to sit and complain (though I may cry — have you met me?!) because I’m being crushed in places because ultimately, it’ll all end beautifully.
Here’s my heart
You’re not paying for a trip. You’re paying for an experience and a lifetime of memories ✨. I hope this motivates you to continue on saving for your future trip(s) ☺️. If you are saving, tell me where are you traveling to? 🌍
Last moment in Costa Rica.
These 4 days has been a whirlwind. I've never traveled like this by myself. Never have been to this country, last minute booking of my flight, and only 300$ in my pocket. This was honestly the best trip I have ever taken. I feel completely cleansed from all that has been life. I didn't escape reality, I dealt with it in the best way. I've never had more self reflection and proud moments. I've never connected with so many people so fast. Hearing their stories, insights, morals and values really put into perspective what is life and why we are on this planet. Traveling is amazing, the scenery is expendable, but the people who you experience it with is where the memories come from. I am refreshed, ready to take on life again a better person and more driven to understanding every moment. When I was alone I took the time to really taking some deep breaths. Soak in everything. Look at the water and just feel it. Find myself, and what makes me Hillary. I needed this more then anything. Thank you to @lindsaytuffs and @berberrrry I couldn't have done it it without you.
Until next time.

This morning after dropping of the older girls to preschool, I made a last-minute decision to go on a nature outing with my littlest one instead of returning home to tackle the the growing mountain of laundry I have been putting off for days. So we stopped to get gas in the car and snacks for my little passenger, then we hopped on the interstate and drove 30 miles to a new place to explore! I marked today the day I was going to address my laundry issue because it's starting to disturb my peace at home. I know my husband feels the same way because we both appreciate the serenity that comes from having a space free of disorder and clutter. Having said that, our little adventure this morning was a conscious effort to prioritize something good, bonding with my child and getting out in nature, over something also important, but could wait until later, such as taking care of the mess at home. Yesterday a similar experience happened to me. I told myself that after I finished reading an article for a class assignment which I had opened on the tablet and already started reading, I would take the girls outside to play at the playground. Well as I was making slow progress in reading because of the girls' constant interruptions, I noticed the time and that my girls were extremely bored from being indoors all day, so I decided to stop reading and take the girls outside. The reading assignment could wait (even if it meant putting me behind school work and pulling a late night). My girls and I ended up having a lovely evening at our community playground. I am starting to recognize that some things can wait, some things matter more than others in the long run, and some things aren't worth stressing over. I am starting to see how choosing my battles and prioritizing what matters most, remembering the big picture of things, is a huge stress reliever and is empowering. I feel happier knowing that I am in more control of my life and I am slowly learning how to master my emotions, not the other way around!
Jag är trött men & konstigt nog glad för att jag skall låta nån åderlåta mig & ta 400 gram blod från mig imorgon. Det kommer att kännas så skönt på Onsdag. Tur att jag inte är en idrottsutövare för med mina blodvärden hade jag åkt fast för Dopping 😉
(Swipe) Touring Koh Samui eating coconut ice cream with my favorite person. What more could I ask for? In the last pic you can clearly see I'm shook with how blue the water is 😂

❤️This the the two-storey Noravank monastery.
With its backdrop of the terracotta cliffs of the Amaghu River gorge, this monastery must have one of the most picturesque settings in all of Armenia.
Have a sunny Sunday y'all!
