Had a special mother and son session the other day with the beautiful and talented makeup artist Meghan C, and her son Dana.
In early March, I spent 3 beautiful days at Asclepios Wellness Center. Asclepios is nestled amongst the hills and greenery of El Cacao, Alajuela in beautiful Costa Rica.
The nature which surrounds Asclepios is breathtaking. Wild Toucans are easily spotted, as well as many other kinds of birds & beautiful foliage.
It's imparative to mention the architecure of Ascelpios. The color choices, moldings & detailing, and overall layout of the buildings as well as use of decorations are absolutely beautiful. Everything was taken into consideration from the heart, and I loved that about the property.
There are many services that are offered at Asclepios. One being a hand built sauna (pictured above and below.)
There are also massage services (which I had the privilege of having - it was extremely relaxing and included the perfect amount of pressure.) Yoga classes, swim aerobics, multiple spa treatments.. the list goes on.
One of my favorite things to do was to swim in the evening & mornings in the pool that overlooked the hills & coffee plantation.
I had a very easy time getting to sleep when it was time to go to bed. There are no TV's or Wifi in the rooms, so distractions were very minimal. It's a perfect opportunity to unplug and free yourself from the internet and mind numbing television that we get lost in on a daily basis. The rooms were minimal, comfortable and the view from my bedroom window was one the best that I have ever had the opportunity to wake up to.
Overall, my stay at Asclepios was exceptional. This is not only a 5 star accommodation, but a work of art, and I thank the staff for everything that they provided for me over the course of the 3 day time period. I hope to be back one day.
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

n: The state of nostalgic, profound longing for an absent something; the love that remains for something that you know will never exist again. It conjures both sadness for the missing, and happiness for having experienced the memory.
