I have such fond memories of this particular afternoon, soaking up the intense sun on my friend’s boat off the shores of Coco, Costa Rica. My friend, Lisa, invited me during my very last week of an extraordinary year living the good life. With her husband, Mao, as captain, and his son, Marcelo (shown here), we had a very happy afternoon! While the guys fished, I enjoyed one of my last lazy days of sunbathing, drinking homemade sangria, and laughing with the girls. The second I took this photo, I knew it was special. I vowed to bring that happiness home with me to Las Vegas, where I returned to work.
