David and I traveled to Jaco, Costa Rica, for a quick get-away at the end of June. We are lucky that we live super close to Hobby airport- home of cheap Southwest flights. I was able to snag a “wanna getaway” deal to San Jose, Costa Rica, for $150 pp round-trip. Neither of us could take a lot of time off of work, so it was a quick trip. Too quick.

I am 1 of 2 people who plan these retreats. This year I was sent to visit Colorado Springs, CO and review The Broadmoor for our upcoming Partner Retreat. Read more
