Our Story

This is a true story.

We being she, the many sides of me, asked of myself the acceptance of all that I may be.

In love I have asked my beauty, with her wonder and her grace, to accept my vows and take my heart as her sacred place.

Big Day Details

Twenty people in close proximity will attend the marriage of myself on my 40th birthday. They will come in silence, comfortable ceremonial clothing, and with blankets in hand. They will prepare to take their shoes off, lie down for the duration of the ceremony, and let the spirit of ancient gongs carry them to the place of timeless peace. This shamanic gong meditation will be led by Sacred Sound Ceremonialist, Jon Reinschreiber and followed by vows by Kelly Nesbitt. For those far away, get your asses here!

I will stay at Casa Iguana on Little Corn Island in an "economy" cabana for 9 days. Maybe even this purple one to the left! But are all nicely spaced apart to offer you more privacy than most other resorts on the island. All rooms are oceanfront offering either views of the beach and palm trees or over the open ocean. The cabanas offer spectacular views, in-room safes, free WiFi in the lodge, bottomless organic and fair trade coffee, charging area for your devices, good tunes all day long, unprecedented ambiance, and 40 acres with private coves. Casa Iguana contributes to sustainable tourism and agrotourism in Nicaragua and helps implement more programs to improve education and promote their practices island-wide. The price is $40.00 a night x9 nights. = $360.00.

It is here that I will write the curriculum to the 'School of ME'. Subjects to include Love, Health, Arts, & Spirit, among other things.

Please help Rosie stay happy without me while I am away on my honeymoon. She has a little separation anxiety and is madly in love with me. She will stay with at my apartment and my next door neighbors/friends will look after her most of the time. But she may have to go to her doggie day care a few days to cover gaps. I'll be gone for almost 3 weeks. I would hope to be able to pay my friends $10 a day for walk, run, feed, and play with her. I am looking to cover two weeks worth of her care.

This is the second leg of my tour. After Magnificent Rock up North, I will head south to San Juan del Sur, a little colorful "pueblo" located just 30 minutes away (by car) from the Costa Rican border, set on the beautiful bay and surrounded by dramatic coastline. Mostly visited by surfers, and is also a vacation spot for many Nicaraguan families and foreign tourists. The town features a lot of energy, colors, restaurants, and nightlife. You can feel the local vibe and observe the life of a tropical village.

This will be my big urban experience during my travels in a town of 15,000. I will stay at a hostel and walk to Zen Yoga for daily yoga. I will be here for 5 days! Yoga $35. Hostel $ 50.

If boredom should strike during the March thaw, feel free to follow my HONEYMOON BLOG. There I will be posting curriculum developments of the 'School of ME'. Don't be afraid to be in touch either. Love letters and such are welcome in this new year. My homemade newsletters with updates to all are stamped and just chomping at the bit awaiting the mailman. So stay tuned. I'm so blessed to have had you all touch my life. I am looking forward to some introspective travel time to honor my past (you), make mental space to let things surface, take care, be aware, create flow, be in the moment, and feel invigorated at the thought of the future.


Ps: The blog is free by the way but Wanderable made be enter a 5 dollar amount.
