Sunday Inspiration is a biweekly series where I share all of the things that I’m loving and offer a quick update on life!

I discovered Misterwives at Bonnaroo last year but never truly paid much attention to them until I heard this song and now I am 100% obsessed. I mean, the lyrics….

As everything fed to our brain’s rammed down our throats with no complaints
Maybe I’m a dying breed, but I believe in individuality

If You Commit to Nothing, You’ll Be Distracted By Everything

Mytanfeet is one of my favorite travel blogs for all things Costa Rica and they’ve got me craving some serious beach time with this post on the 10 best beaches in Costa Rica. I can concur that Manuel Antonio and Cahuita are stunning….the others are on my list!

Anxiety is something I deal with daily and it gets significantly worse during the travel portion of travel – I’m usually a mess leading up to a flight or bus ride. I truly appreciate Hippie in Heels’ honesty in this post about her own travel anxiety struggles. 

Jessie Festa from Jessie On A Journey is one of my blogging idols and favorite bloggers in general. Her travel blogging advice + courses have been invaluable in redesigning and rebranding Sky vs World. She’s now offering a FREE 12 Day Blogging Challenge that I highly, highly recommend. Check it out here!

Every so often I prefer to curl up with an old favorite book instead of starting a new one…last weekend I did just that with this book and devoured it even faster than the first time I read it!

I’ve also been searching out new blogs and one that I’m really looking forward to reading more from is Simpler and Smarter. I already love the theme and am a fan of the author so I know it’s going to be good!

This past week I headed back to my favorite place and more or less disconnected for a week. While I’m still not ready to spill on where I keep going + why I love it so much, I will say that I don’t remember the last time I was so blissfully happy for such an extended period of time. Seriously. I don’t think I stopped smiling once the entire time I was there and when I came home, my whole body hurt from dancing so much. A week later I’m still looking at the pictures and giggling to myself.

I’m so in love with Costa Rica that I’ve decided to shorten my trip back to the States from 6 weeks to 2 weeks (!!!) and I leave in less than two weeks! With only two weeks I’ll be sticking to Pennsylvania, New York and (maybe) Ohio….I would love to hear your suggestions and recommendations, especially for Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and the Finger Lakes Region!

And that’s it for this week! What inspired you this week? What are you reading/watching/listening to? Let me know in the comments!
